Description

The Midas Surveyor is a single or dual (210 / 33kHz) channel echosounder, using unique 'Fuzzy Logic' DSP to give accurate readings and reliable performance, even in shallow water. Data may be logged and output either raw (as measured) or corrected for tide and heave.  The MIDAS Surveyor logs and displays DGPS position data in WGS84 or Local Grid. The user has full control over spheroid and projection constants for Local Grid setup. It has an integral 12 channel GPS/SBAS receiver with a combined antenna.

The Surveyor will accept data input from the following external sensors: Tide, Heave, Sound Velocity, Heading, Event Marker. All data may be logged and output in real time on a single RS232 channel, and tide & heave data may be used to provide real time corrections to depth data.  A 240 x 128 pixel graphics LCD display provides numerical and graphical depth display, position data (WGS84 or Local Grid) and all other incoming parameters. On screen help and simple menu driven setup functions allow full system control. It is supplied with SurveyLog windows based software, allowing data extraction & display. All data is presented in ASCII format, and may easily be exported for use in industry standard hydrographic survey software packages, or simple XYZ format data.
