L-3 Klein, a division of L-3 Marine & Power Systems is a leading sensor technology provider that designs and manufactures high-resolution sonar systems and radar-based security and surveillance systems.
L-3 Klein is a sensor technology provider that manufactures and designs high-resolution sonar systems, and radar-based security and surveillance systems. The Klein S5900 is a COTS multi-beam Side Scan Sonar with sensors and capabilities that are suited to mine-like object detection. The sonar provides high speed, high resolution imaging with 100% bottom coverage in detection and classification modes. The addition of Klein’s gap filler sonar on the S5900 tow body, provides single pass coverage in the sonar nadir region, thus enabling very fast coverage rates that reduce survey times by 40% or more. The high background-to-shadow contrast ratio of the S5900 enhances bottom features and target definition while active motion compensation and advanced beam-forming technologies nullify blurring caused by tow body motion.
The Klein UUV-3500 product line leverages a powerful – wholly FPGA implemented – multi-channel processing engine. The UUV 3500 operates exclusively with L-3 Klein’s proprietary wideband technology providing unmatched side scan range and resolution performance in a low power, compact and lightweight payload. The system electronics will easily integrate into all small Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) platforms currently on the market and is available in a water tight pressure case configuration. L-3 Klein’s newly designed, ruggedized transducers can be molded to meet the vehicle’s space and configuration requirements and are built to last and perform in the most demanding environmental conditions
L-3 Klein’s Side Scan Sonar data acquisition and display software, SonarPro, is now available in Chinese as well as English and Japanese languages. Klein’s SonarPro offers operator control, data acquisition, and display of both bathymetry and side scan data was developed for users by users of Klein side scan sonar and bathymetry products.

Mississippi Marine Towboat Corporation, Greenville, Miss., recently launched its first offshore supply vessel. The 112-foot by 26- foot by 11-foot 2-inch Utility-class vessel was designed by the naval architectural and marine engineering firm of van Bentem and Associates of Ocean Springs, Miss.
The company known today as Klein Marine Systems, Inc. has origins stretching back to the 1960s when Marty Klein, who many consider to be the father of side scan sonar, began building his own devices from his home in Lexington, Mass. As this iconic subsea technology company approaches 50, MTR speaks with
