Swathe Services has announced a new bespoke custom Peli-case product which has been designed to fit the surface components of an R2SONIC Multi-Beam Echo-Sounder (MBES) SIM box and Inertial Navigation System.  This product is specifically designed for use in open boats such as ABP Humber’s 5 meter RIB.  

The Peli-case incorporates all the required bulkhead connectors for external cable fittings; an inverter for operating off a DC battery power and a shrouded cooling system.  As part of this small boat solution, ABP Humber also purchased a bespoke designed and built transom transducer mount for the SONIC series of sonars.  This innovative creation by C4R Systems, a supplier of Swathe Services, carried a SONIC 2024 SONAR, I2NS and Valeport MiniSVS.

This purchase follows the delivery of a second R2Sonic 2024 Multi-Beam Echo-Sounder with Integrated Inertial Navigation System (I2NS) earlier in the year.

The SONIC 2024 capabilities offer superior resolution mapping with greater frequency selections and selectable swath coverage in real-time. It completes high-density surveys much faster than its competitors.

The bespoke products are now used in surveying the busy ports, harbors and shipping routes of the River Humber.
