Wesmar Offers Brochure On ROV Color Scan Sonar

Wesmar Offshore Systems of Seattle, Wash., is offering a brochure describing its high-performance 1100RV color-scanning sonar system designed specifically for small, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

Using Wesmar digital color sonar technology, the 1100RV operates over a single pair of conductors to depths of 5,000 feet (1,525 m)—with depths to 20,000 feet (6,150 m) available on request.

A high-frequency, 266-Khz soundbeam provides high resolution and enhanced target discrimination.

The 1100RV presents a planview map of a given area in an easy-to-interpret full-color, nonfading display. Eight distinct colors indicate the relative strength of the signal return, with red indicating targets of greatest density and blue representing weak targets or superfluous noise. Target location is updated with each 360-degree sweep of the scanning sonar beam.
