EdgeTech, the market leader in deep water sonar systems since 1965, now offers the 2000-DSS; an integrated combined system that gathers side scan and sub-bottom data utilizing EdgeTech proprietary Full Spectrum CHIRP technology in water depths up to 2000 meters.

Our 2000-DSS System is available with 100/400 kHz dual simultaneous CHIRP side scan sonar in addition to a wideband 2-16 kHz sub-bottom profiler. It comes complete with a combined towfish, digital telemetry that runs over a single coaxial cable up to 6000 meters long and a 19 inch rack mount topside processor running EdgeTech DISCOVER acquisition software. GSE Rentals have Deep Tow Winches that are more than capable of deploying this system.

Additionally, the Unique Group  2000-DSS Systems can be integrated with a number of auxiliary sensors such as magnetometer (Geometrics or Marine Magnetics), depth, altitude and USBL Responders. The system is modular and has been configured to allow for integration on to an ROV. In this configuration the communication is via a network connection and the towfish requires a 48V DC power supply from the host ROV. Advice and assistance will be provided with such an application.
