HMS-624 Digital CHIRP Side Scan Sonar from Falmouth Scientific
The HMS-624 Side Scan Sonar System utilizes advanced technology to provide superior imaging capabilities for deep and shallow water applications. The Tow Fish electronics incorporate FSI’s CHIRPceiverTM 24-bit CHIRP signal processing along with dual simultaneous true 100/400 KHz operation which results in very high resolution side scan data at towing depths up to 2,000 meters.
The Topside Power/Data Multiplexer Interface is packaged in a standard 2U 19” rack mount enclosure and provides a 4Mb/s DSL connection for the Tow Fish, and a standard Ethernet connection for the data processor interface. The HMS-624 uses a flexible control interface connected via Ethernet that allows the user to set operating parameters such as CHIRP/CW modes, pulse length, range, and gain.
The system is compatible with third-party Software packages such as OIC GeoDAS, Triton ISIS, and others.
