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.

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.

Edgetech the leader in underwater technology


EdgeTech, the leader in high resolution sonar imaging systems and underwater technology, has recently introduced motion tolerant mode (MT) to their sonar platforms. SonarWiz now supports this as shown below. "The 4205 motion tolerant configuration with multi-pulse provides surveyors the ability to operate either at faster survey speeds or in more adverse weather conditions while still obtaining high quality underwater imagery."
