Coda Octopus Releases XD Wide Angle Echoscope

Coda Octopus has added a wide angle 90° x 40° 240kHz capability to their Echoscope high resolution real-time 3D sonar. This new variant of sonar has multiple projectors and affords increased opening angle thus significantly increasing the field-of-view and survey area of coverage.

In addition to the real-time 3D imaging, which enables the Echoscope to deliver efficiencies in projects where there is low or zero visibility conditions prevailing the new XD Dual Frequency model will enable large area imaging and mapping to be efficiently and effectively completed in support of a wide range of subsea bathymetry and imaging projects.

Built around unique patented technology, Echoscope generates a complete 3D model, composed of over 16,000 sounding from each and every acoustic transmission. The new XD variant provides a multiple projector configuration giving users the benefit and option for multiple frequency options.

Users will now be able to select from multiple opening angles and frequencies including:

  • 90° x 40° at 240kHz through to
  • Eight separate frequencies and opening angles from 340kHz at 50° x 50° to 20° x 20° at 700kHz

The new XD variant can be operated in Landscape or Portrait orientation for increased horizontal or vertical coverage in critical applications and all frequencies can be selected from a dropdown menu in our Underwater Survey Explorer software. For more information, click here.
