SCOUT MKII AUV/ROV
Sea Scan® ARC Scout Mk II
150 kHz to 1800 kHz Options | Transducers Tailored To Your Vehicle
The ARC Scout Mk II is the newest generation of Marine Sonic’s embedded side scan sonar specially designed for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). The Adaptive CHIRP Technology provides the highest imaging quality possible from a side scan sonar and in conjunction with an improved signal‐to‐noise ratio, supports ranges up to 60 % greater than non‐Adaptive CHIRP systems. The Scout Mk II has been designed to increase Area Coverage Rate (ACR) and reduce the overall survey time. With the introduction of selectable Range and Range Delay settings per frequency, the operator gains the ability to acquire high resolution images to the maximum extent of the chosen frequency withoutsacrificing the range extents of the low frequency channels.
The modular design of the Scout Mk II provides both single frequency and dual frequency options with ultra‐low power consumption and reduces the mechanical footprint needed for system integration. To best suit different user applications, frequency options from 150 kHz to 1800 kHz are available. Whereas the 600 / 1200 kHz option provides the ideal compromise between high range and high resolution, the 900 kHz / 1800 kHz option is optimized for applications that require ultra‐high resolution imagery for detecting very small targets in the first survey pass. For the detection of larger objects a 150 or 300 kHz low frequency transducer paired with a 900 kHz provides the highest ACR. The system electronics will easily integrate into all small AUV platforms currently on the market and is also available in a watertight pressure case configuration for ROVs. The Scout Mk II comes with ruggedized transducers custom‐designed and built to fit your vehicle to reduce your time and effort to integrate the sonar payload. This gets your vehicle in the water faster. The transducers are available for depth ratings from 600 m up to full‐ocean depth.
