EA sidescan sonar
High resolution sidescan function
The EA440 has a sidescan function that is ideal for object detection, morphology of the sea bed, dredging control and obstacle and wreck detection.
Objects in the side-scan view can be marked by a mouse click and the position information will be stored. This data can then be exported real time to external software if connected to a GPS GNSS positioning and heading device. The KONGSBERG software Sonar Mosaic is available for this purpose.
With an extra zoom function interesting targets or objects can be scaled up for detailed inspection. The zoom area is freely adjustable, and the window can be positioned as an overlay on any part of the side-scan echogram.
