SB 3050 exceeds all expectationsDuring the actual expedition of the German research vessel Poseidon of IFM-Geomar, the SeaBeam System 3050 from L-3 ELAC Nautik, recently installed onboard, reached peak values regarding depth performance and coverage with a beam width of 1.5 by 2 degrees.

On the journey to the Black Sea, where the system was used for the detection of methane bubbles within the SUGAR project, the system reached a depth performance of more than 3.400 m and a coverage of more than 5.000 m, thus exceeding the calculated values of 3.000 m (depth performance) and 3.500 m (coverage) significantly. The technological top performance and reliability of our SeaBeam system was thus proven impressively once again.
