Further Information

The Harbour Inspection Head was especially designed for the inspection of man-made underwater infrastructure and ship hulls.

  1. It features a fully rotating sensor suite which includes a 3D video camera and a high-frequency multi-beam echo sounder.
  2. At a frequency of 2.25 MHz, the integrated BlueView MB2250-45 delivers high-resolution 3D bathymetry images.
  3. Supported by the mission planning, the Harbour Inspection Head enables the SeaCat to scan a pre-defined section of a harbour wall or an underwater structure.
  4. The rotating section of this SwapHead moves according to a profile defined in the mission plan. Alternatively, the SwapHeadTM features automatic sensor positioning.

Camera and sonar are working simultaneously and – after post-processing of the raw data – provide the user with a resulting 3D picture created by the dedicated Post Mission Analysis Software Suite (as described in Product Description Part 3 – Support Set).
