best in class resolution and sediment penetration


The SUBPRO1210 is a state-of-the-art high-frequency, high-power survey system, optimised for shallow waters allowing survey at depths as shallow as 1.5m. The sediment echosounder has high-resolution on sediment penetration. It´s typical seabed penetration is up to 10m in sand.
