Digital Sidescan Sonars / Datasonics SIS1000
The Datasonics SIS1000 was made by Datasonics, Inc., which is now a part of , of North Falmouth, Massachusetts. The SIS-1000 utilizes Chirp Technology in the (90-110 kHz) frequency band for side scan sonar and (2-7 kHz) for sub-bottom profiling. The SIS-1000 digitally synthesizes and transmits a linearly swept, frequency-modulated (Chirp) pulse with resolution proportional to transmitted bandwidth-not pulse length - for swaths up to 1500 meters.
SIS-1000 data recorded in QMIPS (.dat) and.XTF format can be read by OIC post-processing software, including , and .
