MTR100: EdgeTech

Marine Technology Reporter

EdgeTech designs, manufactures, sells and supports a variety of standard and engineered-to-order underwater sonar systems including side scan sonars, sub-bottom profilers, bathymetric, combined and modular systems. The systems are available in a range of configurations for towed, deep towed, AUV, USV, ROV, ROTV and custom platforms providing underwater imaging. Additionally, EdgeTech provides USBL acoustic tracking and positioning systems, transponder beacons, deep sea acoustic releases, shallow water and long life acoustic releases, underwater acoustic command and control systems and custom-engineered acoustic products. 

Celebrating 50 years in the field of underwater technology, EdgeTech continues to innovate, with a number of new technologies and products in development. Recently EdgeTech introduced the new 2300 Combined Tri-Frequency Side Sonar, Sub-bottom Profiling & Bathymetry System. The system comes standard with a tri-frequency side scan combination. Sub-bottom profiler capabilities have been expanded on the new 2300 and includes the ability to incorporate up to four low frequency transducers as part of EdgeTech’s DW-106 (1-10kHz) deep penetration system. Coupled with that is the ability to utilize a large PVDF hydrophone array providing better sub-bottom receive sensitivity and directivity. The Multi Phase Echo Sounder (MPES) produces real-time, high resolution, 3D maps of the seafloor while providing co-registered simultaneous dual frequency side scan imagery. Additional features include a remote head USBL beacon, optional Nexus Multiplexer, a rear magnetometer shackle mount, and adjustable trim panels.
