Multibeam Sonars / Atlas Fansweep
The Atlas Fansweep multibeam system is manufactured by Atlas Hydrographic, Sydney, Australia.
The Atlas Fansweep has 100-200kHz broadband coverage that includes Simultaneous Multi-Ping technology allowing the system to transmit up to eight pings into the water column at any one time. This enables the system to operate in smaller vessels at higher speeds and in higher sea states than conventional multibeam systems. The Fansweep uses proprietary “High Order Beamforming”, a technique that provides superior resolution across the entire swath of 8x water depth. The Fansweep transmits survey data including bathymetry, automatic feature detection, bottom type classification and in-water column analysis.
Atlas Fansweep is supported via post-processing in the
