SAIC Adds Two Side Scans
These are the fifth and sixth Klein System 3000 systems SAIC has purchased from III for these purposes. SAIC also is using the Klein 5500 they purchased earlier from III to support NOAA and their other hydrographic activities.
The side scans feature PC-based operation with SONARPRO™ software, and Advanced Signal processing and transducers.
Chic Ransone, president of International Industries, stated "We believe that these Klein 3000 sonars make up the backbone of the hydrographic side scan sonar work being done at the present time, because they not only are an excellent technological tool, they are an excellent value."
