||A broadband - wideband high resolution shallow water multibeam echosounder. It is particularly suited to small survey vessel, ROV and AUV operations in the hydrographic, dredging, defence and research sectors. It primarily measures bathymetry elevation and consists of a projector, receiver and dry-side Sonar Interface Module (SIM). Sonar operation is controlled via graphical user interface on a PC or laptop. Commands are transmitted via Ethernet interface to the SIM, which supplies power to the sonar heads, synchronizes multiple heads, time tags sensor data, relays data to the workstation and relays commands to the sonar head. The receiver head decodes the sonar commands, triggers the transmit pulse, then receives, amplifies, beamforms, bottom detects, packages and transmits the data through the SIM via Ethernet to the control PC. Key characteristics of the SONIC 2024 include user selectable operating frequencies, with flexibility to trade off resolution, range and controlling interference from other active acoustic systems. It has variable swath coverage selections from 10 to 160 degrees, the ability to rotate the swath sector, as well as roll stabilisation. The frequency and swath coverage may also be selected in real-time. Frequency ranges from 170 kHz - 450 kHz at 1 Hz resolution (optional 700 kHz). Number of soundings up to 1024 per swath, per head. The pulse length is 15 to 1115 micro-seconds, ping rate is up to 60 Hz and depth rating is 100m.
