The ScanFish Tropheus is an ROTV especially designed for UXO detection that eliminates data uncertainty with high-quality seabed imaging. It functions as depressor of any side scan sonar and is the optimum solution in terms of quality, efficiency and safety. The intelligent control of the ScanFish Tropheus ensures that the ROTV together with the side scan sonar mounted on the underside maintain a constant fixed altitude in proportion to the seabed and far closer than solutions without a depressor.

Add to this a high tow speed of up to 10 knots and the fact that the ScanFish Tropheus allows for continuous data acquisition, you are ensured more accurate and comprehensive data and thus extensively detailed images of any potential UXO targets. The ScanFish Tropheus can be towed by an unmanned vessel. Consequently you avoid having to pose the crew to any risks during the operation. All you need to do is define the altitude of the ScanFish Tropheus and its motion pressure and altitude sensors will do the rest of the job ensuring high stability of the vehicle and sonar in the water.
