RESON has once again demonstrated its ability to fine-tune its product range in both price and features, by introducing a new cost-efficient sonar which bridges the gap between singlebeam echosounders and high resolution multibeam sonar systems. HydroBat is an entry-level multibeam system operating at 160kHz and covers a swath of 120°.
Rich Lear at RESON stated: "A task that used to take a week with the old singlebeam echosounders, takes only three days with this new multibeam HydroBat."
Designed to be simple and reliable, the new HydroBat from RESON is ready to meet the demands of serious hydrographic users in harbors and ports. Former software developer, Simon Barchard, states: "A really neat feature is the ability to run a fully functional survey software package on the sonar processor". Commenting on the way HydroBat is optimized, the R&D engineering team points out that the product has been specifically designed for surveyors looking to make the transition from singlebeam to multibeam sonars, with the minimum of investment but without sacrificing product quality and perfor-mance."
Being expedition-ready demands not only high quality equipment but also highly qualified technical support service, fast-response field support, a comprehensive inventory of spare parts and quick-start training - RESON is uniquely positioned to meet these demands.
HydroBat will be demonstrated during Oceanology International 2010 in London, March 9th-11th.
