Tritech Launches the World's Smallest Multibeam Imaging Sonar
06 February 2018Tritech International Limited [Tritech] has announced the release of the 720im sonar, which adds another model to the popular Gemini range. The sonar’s small size and competitive price, brings multibeam imaging technology to situations not previously possible. Weighing less than 500g and measuring only 63mm wide, the new unit is significantly smaller than other comparable sonars available. Utilising state-of-the-art microelectronics and proven sonar technology, it delivers superior quality sonar imaging from an ultra-compact unit.
Scott McLay, Sales Director at Tritech commented, "The Gemini 720im has been in development for two years. Every aspect of the sonar has been meticulously engineered and rigorously tested, to ensure that it meets the exacting high standards by which the Company operates.”
"Our customers can expect this latest model to deliver the same outstanding performance and reliability that Tritech’s products are synonymous with, but in a supremely lightweight and compact unit,” adds McLay.
David Bradley, Managing Director at Tritech, commented, "It’s hugely satisfying to see the result of our latest project. Our ongoing commitment to investing in R&D means that we can take advantage of advances in technology and develop products that are innovative and have the ability to take sonar technology into new markets and environments, offering real benefits and value in new and existing applications.”
Tritech already has to its record, one of the smallest mechanical sonar in the world – the MicronSonar. When launched, this ground-breaking sonar was considered a game changer in the industry. It utilises Digital Sonar Technology (DST) and despite its miniature size, delivers sonar imagery of clarity and resolution normally associated with larger and more expensive models. The 720im extends that innovative technology into the multibeam arena. Additionally, its compact size and weight removes payload issues encountered on ROVs.
Tritech’s sonar technology has been deployed worldwide in a broad range of applications ranging from the subsea oil and gas industry through to diverse uses such as shark detection.
