Hydroid's REMUS 600 AUVs recently ordered by the UK Ministry of Defense will come installed with EdgeTech's 2200-S 850 kHz Dynamically Focused Side Scan System.
The 850 kHz dynamically focused frequency provides extra high resolution imagery at longer ranges which makes it an ideal tool for Mine Countermeasure (MCM) surveys. The EdgeTech 2200-S systems will also be used by the Royal Navy for hydrographic surveys and environmental assessments.
The EdgeTech 2200-S System is designed specifically for small AUVs and comes available with a choice of dual simultaneous 120 & 410 or 230 & 540 kHz frequencies or 230 with 850 kHz dynamically focused frequency. Other frequency combinations are also possible.
