Manufacturer: R2 Sonic

The Sonic 2022 is a compact wideband shallow water multibeam echo sounder, suitable for a wide variety of general mapping applications.

The Sonic 2022 provides user selectable operating frequencies between 170 kHz and 450 kHz to 1 Hz resolution, and optional 700 kHz, with unparalleled flexibility to trade off resolution and range and controlling interference from other active acoustic systems.

In addition to selectable operating frequencies, the Sonic 2022 provides variable swath coverage selections from 10° to 160°, the ability to rotate the swath sector, as well as roll stabilization. Both the frequency and swath coverage may be selected ‘on-the-fly’, in real-time during survey operations. 

The Sonar consists of the outboard projector and receiver modules, and the inboard Sonar Interface Module (SIM). Third party auxiliary sensors are connected to the SIM.

The sonar data is tagged with GPS time. 

The sonar operation is controlled from a graphical user interface on a PC or laptop typically equipped with navigation, data collection and storage applications software.
