Chesapeake’s SonarWiz processing software streamlines the survey process and simplifies the number of software programs you need to learn. It operates with almost all sonar manufacturers so you won’t need to re-familiarise yourself with a different software each time you need to use different equipment.


It interfaces with all brands of commercially available sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profilers, magnetometers, echosounders and bathymetric interferometers.

Automatically plan survey lines parallel to a reference line, within a polygon based on either efficiency or conventional patterns.

Preview files with the SNIFF feature, also add and fix navigation data with NavInjectorPro.
