Brazilian Order for Tritech’s Gemini
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Tritech International Ltd. sold its multibeam sonar Gemini, to remotely operated vehicle (ROV) providers Sistac Sistemas de Acesso S.A. Sistac initially hired a deep-rate Gemini to evaluate its performance during sea trials and after the company observed its capabilities, subsequently purchased the sonar. The Gemini 720id multibeam sonar is now the primary sonar onboard Sistac’s Soil Machine Dynamics (SMD) Atom work-class remotely operated vehicle (WROV). Tritech’s Gemini multibeam imaging range offers users a real-time, 120 degree field of view and operates at 720 kHz with a range of up to 120m, making it ideal for obstacle avoidance and target detection.
