BlueView Technologies delivered a P900-130 2D Imaging Sonar to the Cincinnati Police Department and recently completed training activities for eight Crime Scene Investigators - the police underwater search and recovery divers. Teaming with Outland Technology, Inc. BlueView's imaging sonar was integrated on to an ROV creating a highly portable underwater search, recovery and inspection system.
BlueView's 2D Imaging Sonar is fully capable in the low and zero visibility conditions common throughout the area, enabling officers to conduct time sensitive underwater operations despite water clarity levels. Additionally, the ROV with the BlueView Imaging Sonar provides added protection for police divers by enabling underwater site inspections to identify hazards and potential risks before deployment.
"The BlueView P900-130 is an amazing piece of equipment, and I can see how it will more than pay for itself the first time we use it" stated Officer Pat Moran, Cincinnati Police Department Homicide - Crime Scene Unit. Officer Moran went on to say "On the first day of training we had less than a foot of visibility and were able to drive the ROV and quickly navigate right to a target with just the sonar."
