Tritech Super SeaKing - Mechanical Scanning Sonar (Work-Class ROV)
In their constant effort to bring ever improving products to the market, Tritech are pleased to announce the introduction of the advanced Tritech Super SeaKing DST (Digital Sonar Technology) Dual Frequency CHIRP Sonar.
We have used the very latest in composite transducer and CHIRP technology to produce an imaging sonar which delivers the clearest images available, at operating ranges previously unobtainable by sonar.
CHIRP technology dramatically improves the range resolution compared with conventional sonars. In fact resolution can be improved by a factor of five times.
In addition, Tritech have introduced a modular transducer design and longer-life slip ring assembly to the sonar to minimise the consequences of operational damage and to improve on the SeaKing Sonars already excellent reliability.
The Super SeaKing Sonar shares many of the features of the earlier SeaKing, which has been chosen as the standard obstacle avoidance sonar in many of the major ROV fleets around the world.
The Super SeaKing Sonar is not one but two mechanically scanned imaging sonars in a single subsea pressure housing : a 325 kHz CHIRP sonar with a true operational range of up to 300 metres for long range target recognition, and a 675 kHz CHIRP sonar for ultra-high definition images. Other frequency options are available on request.
All products in the SeaKing family can be run simultaneously on a single ArcNet communications link, using the same processor and display.
Digital CHIRP system
Composite material technology used in new sonar transducer design, providing:
- Greater range capability from sonar
- Greatly improved resolution and sidelobe suppression
- Direct compatibility with existing transducers - can be retro-fitted
Modular transducer construction - elements replacable
New longer lasting slip ring assembly
Option of RS232 communications for single sonar applications.
