Sound Metrics, the creators of the DIDSON sonar have paved the way in ID class sonar systems. The new more powerful, smaller ARIS Explorer raises the standard. Ultra high frequencies and 128 beams produce near camera quality imagery for black water identification and classification.
HD sonar imagery
Utilizing focused beam technology, 128 actual beams and ultra high 3MHz frequency the ARIS Explorer 3000 produces near camera like imagery and clarity for identification in black water conditions.
A purpose built skid assembly including 180º roll and 30º pitch has been developed for the ARIS and vLBV300. With this skid the sonar head can be rolled 90º in either direction to provide a vertical view of the target thus creating a 3D perception. This unique approach gives the operator a clear picture of the target in the X, Y and Z planes. The roll can also be used for terrain matching. 15º pitch up or down provides the ability to optimize the sonar imagery depending on viewing the seafloor, mid water or surface.
