PicoMBES-120 is a low cost miniature CHIRP FM multibeam echo sounder (MBES) with a wide swath width. PicoMBES-120 is small enough to fit within a USV's ADCP moon pool. PicoMBES-120 features rugged fully encapsulated transducers and stainless steel electronics bottle. All digital signal processing is performed within the sonar allowing a direct connection from the sonar to the users computer via Ethernet or Androidtm smartphone/tablet via WiFi. GNSS and IMU connect to the sonar, no deck unit or rack-mounted hardware is required. Androidtm and Windowstm GUIs are provided for real-time display and recording. The Androidtm app features a real-time 3D point cloud allowing bathymetric data to be acquired using a tablet or smartphone in an Aquapactm.

In addition to conventional digital signal processing, all of our sonars run DPCA micro-nav algorithms. On stable platforms our DPCA micro-nav may be used to measure heave precisely - aiding the Kalman filter in low cost GNSS/IMU solutions and therefore dramatically lowering the total cost of survey equipment ownership.
