Kongsberg GeoSwath

GeoSwath Plus offers very efficient simultaneous swath bathymetry and side scan seabed mapping with accuracies that have been shown to exceed the IHO Standards for Hydrographic Surveys.

The applied phase measuring bathymetric sonar technology provides data coverage of up to 12 times the water depth, giving unsurpassed survey efficiency in shallow water environments. The same area can be mapped 30% to 40% faster using GeoSwath Plus than with a typical beamforming echosounder.

The GeoSwath Plus comes as a turnkey solution, including the deck unit, compact sonar head and a full software package for data acquisition, processing, system calibrations and production of the final bathymetry grids and side scan mosaics.

Alternatively the user can operate with any major third party software. The side scan data can be processed in GeoTexture software to give bottom classification and texture analysis.
