The Omniscan is a flexible imaging sonar system with various configurations that meet your requirements.

We are very excited to announce this new (patent pending) capability of the Omniscan 450 FS sonar. In addition to long range and high resolution imaging, Omniscan can now do motion tracking and position hold!

Omniscan is a low-cost, high-resolution, long-range imaging sonar ideally suited for use on small ROVs and surface vessels. Omniscan has a narrow and tall fan beam (<1 deg width) which is scanned by rotating the platform. As the ROV or surface vessel moves, SonarView “paints” the image of the scanned area of the sea floor giving excellent situational awareness in the murkiest conditions. READ MORE
