Multibeam Sonar - Flexview

The Flexview, KONGSBERG's latest advancement in multibeam sonar technology, is designed specifically for small observation class ROVs where compact size and light weight are key selection criteria.

Delivering superior image quality and coverage, the Flexview multibeam sonar provides high-quality distortion-free images over a 140° sector, reducing the time it takes to search for and locate targets. Two versions of the Flexview are available.

The Flexview's removable transducer is the first of its kind, offering field replacement of a damaged transducer in the unlikely event of a catastrophic impact. It also allows for potential new transducer configurations to be exchanged in the future, depending on the job being performed.
