SKUHS-M9


The HydroSurveyor is designed to collect bathymetric, water column velocity profile, and acoustic bottom tracking data as part of a hydrographic survey.  The two key components of the system are the HydroSurveyor Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP®) platform and the powerful yet user-friendly data collection software. With the HydroSurveyor platform, SonTek can offer an exclusive 5-beam depth sounding device with built-in navigation, full water column velocity (currents) profiling, full compensation for speed of sound (with the CastAway-CTD), and an integrated positioning solution.

  • Overview

    Flexible and Fast

    Water sound speed corrections are interpolated in both space and time with the fully integrated CastAway-CTD.

    All-Inclusive

    Full water column velocity mapping, 5-beam depth sounding, and acoustic bottom tracking (for speed over the ground when GPS is lost) provide comprehensive data for a complete solution with a single package.

    Software Centric

    With built-in automatic data gridding and interpolation, even intricate surveys will not require specialized, complex software, saving you time and money.
