Sidescan Data Sheet

Explore sediment layers in-depth with SonarWiz for Sub-Bottom Profilers with real-time data acquisition and post-processing modules. It also includes navigation, fathometer and magnetometer inputs so you get a broad perspective of a survey area.

SBP Data Sheet

Collecting and processing bathymetry data is a breeze with the SonarWiz workflow and toolset. Produce near seamless amplitude mosaics right off the boat using helm display, plan view, coverage map and directional indicators, as well as automatic, whole survey gain optimization.

Bathy Data Sheet

Help dive teams and recovery personnel locate underwater artifacts, treasures and pipelines you seek to find, map, or recover with SonarWiz. Mag data for ferrous-object detection, co-recorded with sidescan or sub-bottom data, provides a valuable new layer of information.

“It is an excellent product to process Side Scan Sonar and SBP data. I am in the business since 1982 and from the very first time I used the program I decided to buy it (we rented it the first time) without any hesitation.

SonarWiz is an excellent product and the support is even better. Your support is more than perfect. Congratulations.”
