Mobile And Shorebased Tracking Technology

  • BioSonics is a pioneer in unique deployment methods for surveying in the most challenging environments and a developer of unique software for habitat mapping and real-time, automated fisheries data processing.

     
    BioSonics first introduced fixed-location hydroacoustic fish monitoring in 1980. BioSonics introduced the mobile scientific echosounder in the mid ’80s and since evolved the technology to the current DT-X Digital and MX Habitat series. Systems can be configured for mobile, automated fixed-position, and submersible autonomous deployments. BioSonics echosounders are used in all aquatic environments where accurate assessment of marine life abundance, distribution or behavior is required. Versatile, rugged designs allow for use in every environment imaginable. Technical staff includes a team of experts in software and electrical engineering, fisheries science, oceanography and hydroacoustics. 
     
    BioSonics technology centers on focused, split beam and single beam hydroacoustics. Core products are the DT-X and MX series mobile echosounders for fisheries and aquatic habitat assessment. Digital transducers with superior signal to noise ratio, extremely low side-lobes, and multi-frequency, multi-channel systems are some of the unique technology advantages offered. 
     
    A recent BioSonics innovation is its fixed-station monitoring system technology for debris monitoring at cooling water intakes, with several systems now in use at nuclear power facilities used for early warning and reducing risk of clogged intake screens.
     
    BioSonics developed an automated software that processes split beam data in real-time to create track lists containing information that includes the size, location, direction and speed of travel for each target detected.
     
    The company’s ROV mounted echosounders for aquatic habitat and fisheries surveys conducted by remote control using wireless Ethernet communication allows for data collection in environmentally sensitive and/or hazardous areas inaccessible by manned vessels.
