Our main product is the Innomar SES parametric sub-bottom profiler sediment echosounder family. There are models for a wide water-depth range available, starting at shallow-water with less than one meter water-depth to full-ocean depth 11,m. Based on its forerunner Innomar SES , the Innomar SES product line consists of high-quality sub-bottom profilers for a wide range of in- and offshore applications. Parametric acoustics gives you excellent resolution and good penetration into the seabed at low frequencies. The high frequency channel is used to determine the water depth with high accuracy, too. Please see our summary on user benefits and advantages of parametric SBPs.
Meridata's chirp sub-bottom profilers are characterised by their ability of good penetration, ultimate resolution and excellent image clarity in portraying sediment structures. Each channel supports transducers with frequencies anywhere between 2 and 50 kHz. A dual channel configuration allows the lower frequency channel to maximize penetration while the higher frequency channel optimizes layer resolution. For extreme penetration in hard sediments, the system includes coordinated shot control and hydrophone streamer signal acquisition for boomer , sparker or airgun sources, enabling single-pass surveys without fear of interference between the acoustic systems. Suitable system configurations are available for operations in shallow inland water to full ocean depth.
Sub-bottom Profilers are a special kind of singlebeam echosounders, that operate with very low frequencies, that allow to penetrate and scan the upper layers of the subseafloor. There are linear and nonlinear sub-bottom profilers, whereas the work principle of the latter is based on the parametric effect. We have over 80 suppliers in multiple working fields who are happy to assist! Its digital processing and waveform selection technolo. The GeoPulse Compact is a high performance digital sub-bottom profiler.
