The new EM 3002 is an advanced multibeam echo sounder with high resolution and dynamically
focused beams. It is well suited for detailed seafloor mapping and inspection with typical water depths between 0.5 and
EM 3002 uses a new powerful sonar processor in combination with the same sonar head as the popular
and highly acclaimed EM 3000 system. The increase in processing power makes it possible to apply sophisticated and exact
signal processing algorithms for beamforming, beam stabilisation, and bottom detection.
The EM 3002 is the only
high resolution multibeam system available in the market. It incorporates real time electronic stabilisation for both
pitch and roll which ensures that the central beam always points directly below the vessel. The system performance is
stable even in foul weather conditions, and the overall quality of the final chart/product is enhanced.
