EXPLORER MK II System

Dual Simultaneous Transmission, Stainless Steel Construction

The ARC Explorer Mk II is the newest generation of Marine Sonic’s towed side scan sonar designed for search, survey, and recovery applications. The Adaptive CHIRP Technology provides the highest imaging quality possible from a side scan sonar and supports ranges up to 60% greater than non-Adaptive CHIRP systems. The high resolution imaging and simultaneous dual frequency operation in conjunction with a fully adjustable tow point and transducer angle make it an ideal tool for survey and infrastructure inspection applications that require a high level of flexibility. The rugged construction and a 300m depth rating in a one-man portable system more than fulfill the needs of the search & recovery and security communities.

Dual Simultaneous Transmission
Stainless Steel Construction
Built in Variable Angle Bracket
Shock Resistant Nosecone
Adaptive CHIRP
One Piece Ring Fin
Altimeter / Depth Sensor
100m & 30m Cables Standard

The ARC Explorer Mk II comes with a rugged stainless-steel tow fish and a portable, watertight topside processor including a powerful, ruggedized laptop to operate in extreme conditions. Two dual frequency options are available to fit the needs of various applications. The 600/1200kHz option provides the ideal compromise between high range and high resolution, whereas the 900kHz/1800kHz option is optimized for applications that require ultra-high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets in the first survey pass reducing the time and cost of the operation. The small form factor of all system components as well as the weight optimized design make the ARC Explorer Mk II ideal for one-man operation on small vessels of opportunity. 30m and 100m lightweight, Kevlar tow cable are included with the Mk II providing flexibility for different applications and simplified cable management on those smaller platforms. Customer specified-lengths are, however, also available. Like all Marine Sonic Technology products, the ARC Explorer Mk II comes with the user-friendly and self-explanatory Sea Scan Survey acquisition and review software.
