Seafloor Mapping Using Multibeam Sonar

an example of charlotte uavs seafloor scanning capabilites

Instead of sending a single beam of sound down to the seafloor, multibeam sends many individual beams to the seafloor at an angle perpendicular to the direction of survey boat.

With multibeam sonar you are seeing an image that is related to depth. Side scan is an image alone. No depths related to the image. Only depth you know is the Nadir depth.

Seafloor Mapping Using Side Scan Sonar

Side Scan Sonar images of the seafloor quality depends on resolution and how close you get the sonar to the seafloor.

Detailed Structure Using Side Scan Sonar

The line indicates the range from the Sonar to the seafloor, with towed systems.
It’s critical to watch that the sonar doesn’t hit the seafloor.
