“Often, finding the object that you seek is greater than half of your quest”
Side Scan Sonar allows a single vessel to cover a swath of sea floor up to 200 meters in width in a single pass. This allows a large area to be searched in a fraction of the time required with a single beam echosounder type of equipment. Objects above the seafloor that reflect the sound energy back to the Towfish will be displayed on the display screen. Once a sonar contact is found, its location is saved by the sonar operator and can be further investigated in greater detail with additional sonar passes. The Klein 3900 System will display objects as small as individual anchor chain links, seafloor contours and even a diver’s footprint depressions in soft bottom sediment.
