The Datasonics SIS1500 series was made by Datasonics, Inc., which is now a part of Teledyne Benthos Inc., of North Falmouth, Massachusetts. The SIS-1500 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.

OIC supports the Datasonics SIS-1500 sidescan (digital output) via GeoDAS-PC/1500, providing a full control, logging and real-time processing solution. Logging the SIS-1500 data as digital OIC records allows post-acquisition processing and mosaic productions with GeoDAS-Desktop or OIC CleanSweep.

For demo data and example mosaics, please see our Data Samples.

For details on acquisition, see the GeoDAS section.
