Unleash the groundbreaking capabilities of Tritech’s Parametric Sub-Bottom Profiler, equipped with an innovative multi-element composite transducer array. This advanced technology allows the profiler to emit exceptionally low frequencies while maintaining a compact size. Operating within the 10kHz to 30kHz range, the profiler penetrates the seabed, unveiling hidden seismic structural differences and layers that remain concealed from conventional echo sounders.

As part of Tritech’s renowned SeaKing range of sonars and sensors, the SeaKing SBP seamlessly integrates with other SeaKing devices over a single communication link. This unparalleled flexibility enables the simultaneous operation of multiple products, including third-party options through the ARCNET communications link. Experience streamlined efficiency by utilizing the same processor and display, such as the Surface Control Unit (SCU) or a customer-supplied PC or laptop.

The Parametric Sub Bottom Profiler provides operators with a comprehensive view of the underwater environment. The display showcases the raw 200kHz seabed profile, as well as the distinct 10-30kHz sub-bottom layers generated by the parametric pulse, providing valuable insights.

Introducing the Split Head Parametric Sub-Bottom Profiler, a testament to Tritech’s ability to customize standard products to meet specific customer requirements. This version retains all the functionality, capabilities, and performance of the field-proven Tritech SeaKing Sub-Bottom Profiling Sonar (SBP) while offering enhanced flexibility. Separating the transducer and electronics housing effortlessly accommodates diverse underwater vehicle configurations, ensuring optimal performance tailored to your needs.
