R2Sonic Broadband / Wideband Multibeam Echo Sounders represent the latest in advanced underwater acoustic technology. The Sonic systems produce reliable and remarkably clean data with maximum user flexibility through all range settings. Over 20 selectable operating frequencies are available to chose from within the 200 to 400kHz bandwidth, thus providing flexibility over resolution, range, and interference from other active acoustic systems. Equidistant beam spacing, roll stabilization and unique automated range, gate and slope tracking functions are incorporated for Sonic systems, increasing system overall efficiency
Acoustic Imaging can sell any R2Sonic model as part of a hydrograhic system. The R2Sonic systems offered for lease by Acoustic Imaging include a single head R2Sonic 2022 system, a dual head 2020 configuration specifically designed for shallow water environments. Usable swath widths of 7.5-8x water depth are achievable, with the full complement of bathymetry, backscatter (including multifrequency) and water column data recorded as required.Enquiries
The Applanix POS MV is a user-friendly, turnkey system designed and built to provide accurate position, heading, attitude, heave, and velocity data of your marine vessel and remote sensing equipment. With over one thousand systems deployed worldwide, POS MV is field-tested and proven in all conditions. POS MV blends GNSS data with angular rate and acceleration data from an IMU, and heading from GPS Azimuth Measurement System (GAMS) to produce a robust and accurate full six degrees-of-freedom position and orientation solution.
All POS MV models are designed for use with multibeam sonar systems, enabling adherence to IHO (International Hydrographic Survey) standards on sonar swath widths of greater than ± 75 degrees under all dynamic conditions. At the entry-level is the POS MV SurfMaster, which delivers robust georeferencing for small platforms, both manned and unmanned. Fully supported by Applanix’ industry leading post processing software, POSPac MMS, SurfMaster delivers roll and pitch accuracy to 0.03 degrees. Wavemaster II is ideal for safety-of-navigation geoferencing and smaller vessels and OceanMaster is designed for increasingly difficult conditions and performance requirements on long straight baselines. The POS MV Elite is for users seeking the very highest level of performance available to the industry.
Acoustic Imaging is a certified reseller for Applanix marine products and offers the following units for lease or demonstration to select clients:
V5 RTK POSMV 320 (Oceanmaster) RM and RTK POS MV OceanMaster TI IP68 SFF
V5 RTK POSMV WaveMaster SFF IP68 Ti
V5 RTK POSMV SurfMaster SFF IP68 Ti
The SES-2000 series of mobile parametric sub-bottom profilers with echo-sounder functionality are designed for shallow water (1m to 400m) investigations where resolution is paramount. Parametric sound generation guarantees an outstanding spatial resolution due to the transmission of short focused sound pulses at high ping rates (up to 50pps). All channels are recorded digitally, but analogue outputs are available as well.
The narrow-beam SES-2000 Compact model owned by Acoustic Imaging is ideally suited for small boat, shallow water surveys. The transducer can be pole- or hull-mounted and interfaces to common GNSS and motion sensor strings to provide accurate georeferenced and corrected profiles of the seabed and subsurface. Penetration is dependent on sediment types but the Compact system has been proven to image 5-8m in sand environments (generally considered the most difficult sediments to penetrate).
Applications include the detection of sediment structures for dredging and geological surveys as well as searching embedded objects like pipelines, boulders or archaeological artefacts. Centre frequency and bandwidth (pulse length) can be adjusted over a wide range according to the application using a user-friendly data acquisition and control software.

Dec 2016: Applanix integration of Trimble Centrepoint RTX into POSPac GNSS Inertial software is a considerable step into the future of GNSS-Inertial gereferecing for marine sensors. With PP-RTX the next generation GNSS Inertial solution replaces traditional DGNSS differential techniques. It is robust and of centimetre level accuracy without the requirement for any terrestrial base stations.
If you are wondering how PP-RTX may help your operation, contact us here. We understand the perculiarites of the Australian environment as well as the theory of PP-RTX GNSS-Inertial integration. We will be upfront about whether it can meet your needs. Contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.Enquiries
Geometrics is a California-based company specialising in the design and building of innovative and rugged geophysical data acquisition systems for land, marine, and airborne applications. Acoustic Imaging has purchased a high-resolution MicroEel 12-channel analog seismic solid streamer combined with the G-Marine logging software for data acquisition. This multichannel streamer is designed for shallow water operations (1.5m group spacing of hydrophone elements) where deeper penetration / enhanced resolution of subbottom layers is required. The system may be used with a variety of acoustic sources (e.g., boomer, sparker, small airgun or watergun) either supplied by the client or Acoustic Imaging.
