The Applied Acoustics Squid 500, Squid 2000 and Delta Sparkers are used for high resolution applications with low electrical power input and high penetration. The small Squid 500 is used with a  Boomer/Sparker HV cable and is buoyed-off by any suitable device available. The Applied Acoustics Squid 2000 is a catamaran based device capable of higher power input. Stable when under tow, the catamaran is easily deployed and also easily adjusted for array depth for the best possible pulse shape. The horizontal planar array ensures an optimal ‘footprint.’

The Applied Acoustics Delta Sparker is a large device designed for high penetration and as such offers a lower frequency sound pulse than the two smaller ‘Squid’ designs. Integral buoys are supplied with adjustable depth capability. It can be split in two for ease of shipping.

Different sparker tips can be used with all sparkers to increase resolution or penetration as required. Sub metre resolution and the  ability to produce excellent data to hundreds of metres penetration ensure that the AAE sparkers are the proven tool for a wide variety of sub-bottom profiler applications.
