|Alternative Labels||Simrad ME70|
|Definition||The Simrad ME70 is a quantitative multibeam echo sounder designed for use in fishery research applications. The instrument features a configurable wide fan of stabilised and calibrated beams for biomass estimation, fish school characterisation and fish behaviour studies. All beams can be configured as split beams to provide data for single target analysis, such as target strength measurements and target tracking, with low side lobe levels and short pulse lengths allowing for accurate biomass estimation close to the bottom. The ability to adjust the athwartship centre angle of the fan from +45 to -45 degrees enables the instrument to be used to study fish close to ridges and slopes. The instrument operates in the frequency range of 70 to 120 kHz, and provides a configurable acoustic fan containing 3 to 45 stabilised beams which can be configured as split beams. The maximum total swath width is 140 degrees, with a minimum acquisition depth of less than 1 metre below the transducer.|
