The Echoscan has a 200 kHz operating frequency, with 2.5cm resolution, high survey speed capability (17 knots max), sidescan and heave/pitch/roll sensors co-located in the transducer, a built-in single-beam transducer and independent bottom-tracking channels.

OIC supports acquisition of Echoscan data through GeoDAS-MB and
GeoDAS-GA (for sidescan and multibeam).
