Get your abstract writing mits out for the European Geophysical Union session on multibeam water column data.
ASV Harry has just completed his acceptance trials and there were a number of tests that we performed which are unique to ASVs, which I thought I would share. Wifi Link Test The SeaRobotics ASV is autonomous but it is always good to see what is going on and how do you communicate nowadays – […]
It looks like R2Sonic have been busy. Pitch stabilisation and ROBO mode! Major firmware & GUI releaseStandard frequency range is expanded to 170-450kHz for Sonic 2026 systems, and Sonic 2022 and 2024 systems with model 1006 projectors.GUI now includes ROBO Mode for shallow water surveys less than 40m in depth, simplifying sonar operation.700kHz UHR option […]
If you are wanting to collect great backscatter data to create mosaics then this poster from Jonathan Beaudoin is a must read. It shows you how to set the sonar up, use SVP data and then process it in FMGT.

Pearl Habour wrecks surveyed with multibeam, LiDAR and underwater photogrammetry. Coolest thing is making models of wreck artefacts by using 3D printers. The small USV is also pretty impressive – complete with R2Sonic 2020.
