Norbit iWBMS Turnkey Multibeam Sonar System

NORBIT Wide Band Multibeam Sonar (WBMS) is the most compact and tightly integrated (IMU, Gyro, GNSS, multibeam, side scan, snippets, backscatter, water column) high resolution sonar system in the market. It is a complete underwater survey and research machine with having Applanix WaveMaster II (globally leading GNSS/INS system) embedded into the unit ensures fast and reliable mobilization and high-resolution surveys over a wide swath. The WBMS sonars are based on a state of the art analog and digital platform featuring powerful signal processing capabilities, offering roll stabilized bathymetry and several imagery and backscatter output

Compact and lightweight form enables for simpler, less robust mounting infrastructure than earlier generation multibeam sonar systems. Low power consumption allow flexibility for installing on very small survey vessels. All these features increase efficiency and for sure quality.
