EdgeTech announced the shipment of additional 3125 Side Scan Sonars to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilminton District bringing the total to USACE districts this year into the double digits.
Other USACE districts purchasing the 4125 Side Scan Sonar’s from EdgeTech in the recent past include: New England District Norfolk District New Orleans District St. Louis District and Kansas City District.
The EdgeTech 4125 Side Scan Sonar is a small portable and versatile system. The 4125 uses EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology which provides high resolution imagery for fast and accurate surveys; two dual simultaneous frequency sets are available for the 4125 depending on the application. The 400/900 kHz set is for shallow water survey applications. The 600/1600 kHz set is for customers that require ultra-high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets. The 4125 systems are often used for classifying targets searching for lost buoys and mooring and reviewing any other potentially dangerous underwater obstructions in the waterways.
