Falmouth Scientific, Inc.


Seismic, Sub-Bottom, Side Scan, and Combined Sonar Systems

All compatible with industry-standard data acquisition & processing software packages

Bubble Gun Low-Frequency Acoustic Seismic Systems

Low-frequency acoustic signals provide superior sub-bottom penetration through coarse sand, gravel tills, and other difficult sediments

Two Available Transducers:
Standard 70 Hz to 2 KHz
Low-Frequency LF 20 Hz to 2 KHz

Small component size, portability, and low power requirements make this a valuable tool for any survey platform

Multiple sources can be synchronized to a common trigger without the need for external timing control

Highly repeatable shot-to-shot phase and amplitude wavelet correlation and clean source frequency bandwidth signatures facilitate post-processing & data analysis

Falmouth Scientific and Klein – A MIND Technology Business, are co-developing a towed combined sub-bottom and side scan system for the commercial survey and government customers. The system utilizes the strengths of both companies to provide superior side scan image quality and enhanced sub-bottom penetration and resolution. Standard packages will include 1,000m and 3,000m depth options. Interested customers can contact Ocean Innovations.
