Digital Sidescan Sonars / Teledyne Benthos SIS 1600
The SIS 1600 Series (including the 1624 and 1625) are made by of North Falmouth, Massachusetts.
The Teledyne Benthos SIS1600 Series sdie scan sonar is a fully integrated system that uses both advanced Chirp and conventional continuous wave (CW) technologies — single frequency or dual frequency — and an advanced high-speed communications link to acquire high resolution side scan sonar images. It is a complete side scan sonar survey system that includes a topside acquisition system and software, a 100-meter tow cable, the CL-160 Communications Link, and one of two available tow vehicles: the TTV-196 Tow Vehicle, which acquires long range, high resolution Chirp side scan sonar images in a single frequency band; and the TTV-196D Tow Vehicle, which acquires long range, high resolution Chirp side scan sonar images in two frequency bands simultaneously. In addition to the Chirp side scan sonar, both tow vehicles provide CW side scan sonar which can be used to acquire high resolution images over short ranges.
OIC supports the Teledyne Benthos 1600 Series (including the 1624 and 1625) sidescan
sensors via GeoDAS-PC/TBI, providing a full control, logging and
real-time processing solution.
