The Falmouth Scientific HMS-624 Side Scan Sonar System utilizes advanced technology to provide superior imaging capabilities for deep and shallow water applications.
The Tow Fish electronics incorporate FSI’s CHIRPceiverTM 24-bit CHIRP signal processing along with dual simultaneous true 100/400 KHz operation which results in very high resolution side scan data at towing depths up to 2,000 meters.
The Topside Power/Data Multiplexer Interface is packaged in a standard 2U 19” rack mount enclosure and provides a 4Mb/s DSL connection for the Tow Fish, and a standard Ethernet connection for the data processor interface.
The HMS-624 uses a flexible control interface connected via Ethernet that allows the user to set operating parameters such as CHIRP/CW modes, pulse length, range, and gain.
The system is compatible with third-party Software packages such as OIC GeoDAS, Triton ISIS, and others.
Portable Sidescan Sonar System Portable digital sidescan towfish and Sonar interface with true 16-bit processing, Toughbox workstation, and GeoDAS software for high-resolution survey imaging.
Easy-to-use and low-cost, the HMS-1400 System provides single- or dual-frequency operation with depth, heading, and attitude sensors. The powerful GeoDAS software offers an extensive suite of capabilities common in more expensive systems, including display of real-time mosaicing of sidescan images on top of nautical chart data for effective image location, mission execution, survey planning, and advanced target analysis.
