JW Fishers' NEW Chirp 450/900 kHz side scan sonar system is the next génération in the widely used sonar line. The new system offers the popular CHIRP technology at a fraction of the cost of the compétition. Building on over 30 years of sonar experience, CHIRP sonar offers the end user benefits over the conventional sonar such as longer range opération and increased resolution. > The popular JW Fishers SSS-600kHz analog system will remain available as a more economical sonar system and will still provide the images that have made this sell- ing unit popular for the last decade. Side scan sonar is one of the most effective tools for underwater exploration because it can search a large area quickly and produce a detailed picture of anything on the bottom or in the water column, regardless of the water clarity. When looking at a side scan image it appears as _^ if the water "has been removed" and the operator is getting an unobstructed view of the océan floor, lake bottom, or river bed. -- High resolution images are sent from the towfish to a topside, ruggedized laptop for display and storage. An optional tablet mounted into the control box lid is available for small, open-boat opérations.
