Independent WASSP sonar report released
Multibeam manufacturer, WASSP Ltd, has announced the release of an independent report on its WMB-3250 Multibeam Sonar.
Over 700 Multibeam systems are being used in the commercial fishing industry and other applications. Using advanced signal processing techniques coupled with the latest generation hardware platforms, the WASSP WMB-3250 is a high-quality Multibeam solution that breaks the tradition of a Multibeam system being an expensive and complicated technology to use.
“It was important to us that this report was conducted by an independent party using survey grade equipment with the resulting bathymetric survey data meeting industry standards. We certainly achieved that”, says Terry McDonald, general manager of WASSP Ltd’s parent company Electronic Navigation Ltd.
The report conducted by Durban based company Environmental Mapping & Surveying (EMS) concentrated on a technical evaluation of the WMB3250 performance. Sensors and hydrographic software used included HYPACK, SMC IMU, Valeport SVP and Trimble RTK.
“EMS’s independent technical report clearly shows that the WMB-3250 is able to deliver the results and quality required for most entry level survey/mapping and dredge type applications where cost-effectiveness and ease of use are the prime requirement”, adds Mr McDonald.
For those who require it, analysis of the results verifies its ability to meet IHO Standard 1a.
