All-in-one broadband multibeam sonar provides high resolution bathymetry over a wide swath. Fitted with an OEM Applanix motion reference system allowing fast and reliable mobilization along with quality sounding in most survey conditions.
Nominal frequency 400kHz with 5-210° swath capability.
Valeport MiniSVP and MiniSVS
Sound Velocity (SV) probe for observing SV through the water column and SV sensor for observing SV at the transducer head.
Heading reference system.
Real Time Kinematic (RTK) receiver for multibeam operations.
Digital radio base and rover. GPS and GLONASS enabled offering more satellites for better reliability and cm accuracy during RTK operations.
Dual frequency singlebeam echo sounder. Depending on the survey requirement, single frequency or dual frequency may be logged (200kHz / 30kHz). Horizontal accuracy of sounding is increased by using a narrow beam transducer of 3˚ with the 200kHz system. This is important for dredge and engineering surveys particularly on the batter.
Differential positioning of soundings is achieved either via the AMSA beacon system or if required via Real Time Kinematic methods. These methods can provide accuracies from metre to sub metre.
Side Scan Sonar (SSS)
452F Starfish for reconnaissance and feature detection in harbour and river environments. For more stringent surveys, a higher grade SSS is available as required.
Robotic / reflectorless 3” total station capable of up to 1200m in reflectorless mode.
HCSurvey utilise a range of specialised software to acquire and integrate your data which include but are not limited to
HYPACK / HYSWEEP
Provides a single data logging, processing and plotting software for multiple hydrographic equipment.
Processing software for multibeam and singlebeam data, providing client presentations and deliverables.
Software for drawing and computations.
Software for data analysis and visualisation which scientists seem to prefer.
CORS - Continuous Operating Reference Station
Providing Real Time Kinematic (RTK) solutions.
Vessels supplied to suit various water conditions and project size. From one-person launch, to vessels for coastal survey. We charter vessels as required but generally, our fleet of small craft are more than capable.
