Side Scan Sonar
For imagery under the water, side scan sonar is the best tool for the job. At Skeena Geomatics we use several different types of side scan sonar systems based on the imagery that is required. For extremely high resolution, short range imagery we will operate very high frequency systems. When wide area imagery is required with suitable resolution, we use lower frequency side scan systems.
Interferometric side scan sonar systems combine both side scan imagery at a low frequency with multi beam surveying. The combined systems are used in shallow water, wide area full bottom mapping applications.
