Norbit Release ‘Winghead’ Multibeam Sonar

Norbit Subsea released Winghead, the latest addition to the Norbit family of multibeam sonars.The Winghead is a true 1024 beams multibeam echo sounder, with the Norbit curved arrays, a frequency agility from 200kHz to 700kHz and a resolution of 0.5 x 0.9 degrees at the center frequency of 400kHz. This ultra high resolution sonar is conceived to exceed the performance of the vast majority of multibeam systems offered today. The Winghead sonar also facilitates unmatched professional level performance on more platforms than ever, with a carefully designed form factor and with a weight in air of less than
