SeaBat® F30 High Resolution Forward-looking Multibeam Sonar Demo

Unique dual frequency sonar with 2D imaging and 3D FLS bathymetry

BlueZone with partners Teledyne Reson has completed a demonstration of the SeaBat® F30 High-Resolution Forward-looking Multibeam Sonar at Pittwater in NSW. The SeaBat® 3D mode provides range, bearing, and vertical incidence angle for all echoes with 2D imaging and 3D FLS bathymetry.

BlueZone East Coast GM, Andrew Hazell, said that the demonstration was organised due to strong demand and interest from both Navy and Army potential users. “The F30 Forward-looking technology fills a much-needed gap in sonar capability,” said Andrew, “Many Defence users are considering the need to operate in and around the surf zone and the Forward-looking capability enables surveillance from the seaside towards the coastline.”

The SeaBat F30 (also known as 7130-MkII) is a high-resolution Forward-Looking Sonar System operating at 200 kHz or 635 kHz illuminating a wide, 120° horizontal sector ahead of the Sonar Head Assembly. The high frequency 635 kHz provides high-resolution classification functionality, whereas the lower frequency 200 kHz provides long-range detection capability.
