High-resolution, multi-beam imaging sonar manufacturer Sound Metrics launched its latest addition to the ARIS (Adaptive Resolution Imaging Sonar) product line at Oceanology International in London earlier this year.

The new model, known as the ARIS Voyager 3000, is depth rated to 4,000 meters and is currently available with 3.0 MHz and 1.8 MHz operating frequencies.

Sound Metrics said the ARIS Voyager 3000 offers a sleek titanium design and delivers on what many customers have been asking for: the same high-resolution sonar imagery of an ARIS, but in a deep rated system.

“We actually sold two systems prior to the official product launch at OI in London last month, without any marketing or promotional efforts. That is something that has never happened to us before,” said Joe Burch, president of Sound Metrics.
