Teledyne RESON A/S has delivered a SeaBat T50-R Extended Range multibeam sonar system to Greenland’s Institute of Natural Resources for use in the R/V Sanna. Teledyne RESON naval architects worked with OSK Shiptech, and Nuuk Shipyard to modify the vessel to accommodate the new system. Installation was complete in mid-March and followed by a control survey and customer training, which led to an extended range sea trial in Greenland’s capital Nuuk, the northernmost capital on earth and with seas up to 600 meters (1,968 feet) deep.
Joining the SeaBat T-series of multibeam sonar systems, Teledyne has introduced the Seabat T20 Motion Scan with a pan and tilt configuration that delivers high precision surveys both traditional and for the hydrographic market. The system is flexible for both high resolution and long-range use, comes with three operation modes on one sonar, and include Teledyne PDS for control, data acquisition and processing.
