Digital Sidescan Sonars / Datasonics SIS3000
The Datasonics SIS 3000 series was made by Datasonics, Inc., which is now a part of , of North Falmouth, Massachusetts. The SIS 3000 utilizes Chirp Technology in the (190-210 kHz) frequency band for side scan sonar imagery for swaths up to 1000 meters, with uniform cross-track resolution. The SIS 3000 utilizes Chirp Technology in the (90-110 kHz) frequency band for side scan sonar and (2-7 kHz) for sub-bottom profiling for swaths up to 2000 meters, with uniform cross-track resolution.
OIC supports the Datasonics SIS 3000 sidescan (digital output) via GeoDAS-PC/3000, providing a full control, logging and real-time processing solution. Logging the SIS 3000 data as digital OIC records allows post-acquisition processing and mosaic productions with GeoDAS-Desktop or OIC CleanSweep.
