Ping DSP Enhances Mapping Capabilities Of 3DSS-iDX

Ping DSP announces the 3DSS-iDX-PRO wide swath bathymetric and 3D/2D imaging sonar with enhanced INS based position and attitude sensing.

Ping DSP is pleased to introduce a new model of its 3DSS sonar, the iDX-PRO, featuring a fully integrated SBG Navsight Ekinox INS and Septentrio GNSS within the compact 3DSS form factor. The Ekinox is a 0.02° class instrument that together with the integrated GNSS provides a tightly coupled INS solution specifically tuned to operation difficult marine environments. The new compact turn-key combination of the 3DSS and Ekinox excels in shallow water survey applications with high motion dynamics, such as exposed coastal areas, and in GNSS denied environments, such as under bridges.

The new iDX-PRO collects both high accuracy, wide-swath bathymetry (e.g.IHO Special Order, CHS/Exclusive Order, NL Norm 1A) and high resolution 3D imagery. 3D imaging augments bathymetric surveys with spectacular, geometrically correct, three dimensional sidescan views of seabed features, subsea structures, subsurface hazards and water-column objects such as schools of fish and buoy lines.

As with all 3DSS solutions, the new iDX-PRO is competitively priced in comparison with MBES systems while meeting or exceeding the same hydrographic standards with a markedly higher area coverage rate, particularly in shallow water.

The new 3DSS-iDX-PRO is now available to order and an upgrade path is also offered for existing 3DSS customers. For more information please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or click here.
