System Description:

The Sonic 2026 is the most advanced broadband – wideband multibeam sonar of its kind. 

With wide selectable operating frequencies from 170-450kHz and optional 100kHz with max range setting to 1200m, the user has unparalleled flexibility to trade off resolution and range and controlling interference from other active acoustic systems. In addition to selectable frequencies, the Sonic 2026 provides variable swath coverage selections from 10° to 160° and ability to rotate the swath sector, which may be changed ‘on the fly’ in real-time and a pitched stabilized projector for optional beam modes. 

The Sonar consists of the three major components: a compact and lightweight 

projector, a receiver and a small dry-side Sonar Interface Module (SIM). Third party

auxiliary sensors are connected to the SIM. The sonar data is tagged with GPS time.

The sonar operation is controlled from a graphical user interface on a PC or laptop 

which is typically equipped with navigation, data collection and storage applications software.

The operator sets the sonar parameters in the sonar control window, while depth, imagery and other sensor data are captured and displayed by the applications software. 

Commands are transmitted through an Ethernet interface to the SIM. The SIM supplies power to the sonar heads, synchronizes multiple heads, time tags sensor data, and relays data to the applications workstation and commands to the sonar head. 

The receiver head decodes the sonar commands, triggers the transmit pulse, receives, amplifies, beamforms, bottom detects, packages and transmits the data through the Sonar Interface Module via Ethernet to the control PC.

The elimination of separate processors and interface bottles makes this sonar well suited for AUV installation. Apart from the projector and receiver, the only hardware to be housed on the AUV is an interface board the size of a PC/104 board, Ethernet ports for interface, and the provision of isolated 48V DC power.
