EXPLORER Towed System

Adaptive CHIRP, Removable Transducers, Built in Variable Angle Bracket

Marine Sonic Technology is innovating the side-scan sonar market yet again with our newest generation side-scan sonar in the Sea Scan ARC towed system. Our ARC Generation systems utilize our latest proprietary technology, Adaptive CHIRP. This technology provides extended ranges (see specs for expected ranges), minimal power consumption, and more accurate results for faster surveys, both critical components of side-scan sonar missions.

The Sea Scan ARC Explorer tow fish is constructed using hard anodized billet aluminum, stainless steel, and durable polymers. It features a built in Variable Angle Tow Point for ultimate imaging flexibility. Field replaceable transducers allow the user to quickly adapt the sonar to various conditions without com­promising range or resolution. Up to four frequencies can be installed on the same tow fish at any time. Modular construction minimizes the maintenance costs and maximizes upgrade capability.

The system is powered by AC or DC voltage, and as standard with our previous models, the Sea Scan ARC Explorer comes with a quick-release mecha­nism to prevent the loss of the tow fish should it strike an object during the survey. The ARC Genera­tion will continue to use the highly praised Sea Scan Survey acquisition and review software which is designed for Windows-based PC's and is widely known for its ease of use.

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.
