Tritech launches Horizon multibeam echo sounderTritech is pleased to announce the launch of Horizon, an exciting product for multibeam seabed survey. Horizon is a multibeam echo sounder system in a compact and robust single housing. It uses the very latest advances in acoustic time delay beamforming techniques to deliver high quality survey data at an affordable cost.

In shallow water Horizon can be mobilised on a vessel to gather survey data sets at depths down to 120m. For deep water survey operations the system can be deployed on an AUV or ROV platform. Horizon has a wide swath coverage of 120 degrees - where required, two Horizon sonar heads can be linked together to form a dual head setup for maximum swath coverage. Extremely fast ping rates of up to 100Hz allow Horizon to be used for higher speed survey operations, without compromising along-track resolution.

Tritech's Sales and Marketing Director, Maurice Fraser, commented on the launch: "The addition of Horizon to our multibeam product portfolio is a major step towards our commitment to deliver new and innovative multibeam sonars to market. Horizon offers twice the acoustic resolution of our successful Eclipse multibeam sonar and cements our position as one of the major multibeam sonar manufacturers in the world."
