Side scan sonars are used for acoustical imaging of seafloor surficial features such as sedimentation patterns and man-made objects (e.g., cables, pipelines and shipwrecks).

Meridata offers a selection of side scan sonar systems operating at frequencies between 100 kHz and 1300 kHz, and providing swath coverages of up to 1 km.

In combination with our sub-bottom profilers, side scan sonars produce invaluable information for operations such as marine cable and pipeline route surveys, and planning of underwater structures, as well as marine habitat mapping.
