Raytheon Adds New Frequency To DSF-6000 Fathometer Depth Sounder

Raytheon Ocean Systems Company has added a new frequency to its popular DSF-6000 Digital Survey Fathometer® depth sounder, creating a newly configured, "deepwater" instrument package at no increase in price.

The DSF-6000 now has, in addition to existing frequencies of 24, 40, 100, and 200 kHz, a 12 kHz frequency for 5,000-meter capability.

The portable depth sounder continues to feature a permanent chart display and both serial and parallel output ports. It provides high resolution, quality bathymetric profiles with automatic or manual switching among seven overlapping phases.

The system will also continue to have a simultaneous dual frequency or individual frequency operating capability.

The DSF-6000, when interconnected with position-finding equipment and a suitable digital tape recorder or data logger, can generate depth and position data in permanent digital form for precision bathymetric survey operations.
