The National Deep Submergence Facility (NDSF) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) re-cently purchased a new RESON SeaBat 7125-SV-ROV system to be integrated into the Jason ROV.
This is the 3rd RESON SeaBat 7125 system that WHOI has purchased – the first two installed on the AUV Sentry and HOV Alvin. These 6000m depth rated systems provide the NDSF fleet of deep-sea exploration vehicles with ultra high-resolution bathymetric survey capabilities. The RESON SeaBat 7125's add to the unique set of tools that NDSF uses to image and map the vastly unexplored depths of our planet's oceans. The integrated SeaBat multibeam bathymetric and backscatter data sets, combined with data provided by other onboard sensors, and video camera footage, all contribute to a unique multidimensional view of our deep unexplored ocean seafloor environments. WHOI-NDSF is pioneering a research path whose discoveries will benefit the entire global oceanographic community.
RESON is proud to be a part of this exciting adventure.
