Streamline Surveys with SonarWiz

SonarWiz by Chesapeake Technology streamlines the survey process and simplifies the number of software programs you need to learn. It operates with almost all sonar manufacturers, so you won't need to re-familiarize yourself with different software. SonarWiz interfaces with nearly all brands of commercially available sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profilers, magnetometers, echo sounders and bathymetric interferometers. Perpetual electronic licenses or hard dongles include one year of support. We rent and lease-to-own on a weekly and monthly basis.


1 Get Started Zoom
Getting Started with SonarWiz

New for 2022, we offer a free 2-hour Zoom session to get you started with your new license. The session covers installing and licensing SonarWiz and a brief tutorial on using SonarWiz to process a sample data set. Up to 5 people can participate, and we answer as many SonarWiz questions as time allows. Contact us today to schedule a time slot during normal business hours.

2 Sidescan
SonarWiz Sidescan

Real time tools allow for data analysis and survey monitoring with interfaces to most manufacturers. Processing tools allow for creation of mosaics and many options for data enhancements. Target and coverage reports, and many export options provide the tools needed for final product creation.

3 Sub bottom
SonarWiz Sub Bottom

Explore sediment layers in-depth with real-time analog and digital data acquisition and post-processing modules. Auto reflector tracking and creation of layers provide the tools needed for full analysis. Enhance images with gains and filters to produce a clear image of the sediment below the surface.

4 Bathy
SonarWiz Bathymetry

Collect and process multibeam and Lidar data. Real time displays for all sensor data for QC monitoring. Intuitive and easy to use tools for data cleaning, including manual and automatic filtering. Patch and Performance Test, 3D views. Creation of Grids, contours, XYZ and other final products.

5 Mag
SonarWiz Magnetometry

Collect and process magnetometer data with SonarWiz. Collected as stand alone or used in conjunction with other systems. Processing tools allow for the import of most formats, and tools for creation of new sensor format import. Auto detection of anomalies. Export to XYZ, grid and contour.

6 Single beam
SonarWiz Single Beam

Easy to use interface for data logging and processing. Data input from single beam sensor, motion sensor and navigation devices. Swath editor for data cleaning and performance test for system analysis provide the tools needed for completing the survey work. Export to XYZ, grid and contours, and more.

7 EdgeTech Gap Fill
EdgeTech Gap-Fill Sonar

EdgeTech has recently introduced an innovative and new method to provide nadir gap coverage on the EdgeTech 2205 sonar platforms. Complementing this new technology is SonarWiz from Chesapeake Technology, providing a software solution to support processing and mosaicking the new gap fill solution.
