H5se3 - Side scan sonar with built-in echosounder


H5se3 - Side scan sonar (SSS) with built-in echosounder (ES) for on-board placement. Operating frequencies 300 kHz (SSS) and 700 kHz (ES) allow operation at depths up to 120m.

The effective side-view method of search is used when working on large areas, which allows to reduce the time of work and material costs.
Small-sized narrow-profile design of SSS allows you to place it on board of any vessel on a rod with a 25x50mm cross section and a minimum depth. A special method of fastening on the rod allows you to protect SSS from impact and reduce the risk of damage. Sonar survey of the water area is carried out with SSS which placed on Board of a moving carrier (ship, boat, boat, etc.), allowing to obtain high-quality digital detailed acoustic image of the bottom in real time. Built-in echosounder allows you to perform echo-sounding survey with instrumental estimation.

SSS provides high resolution range (3.5 cm) for object search and target detection. The recommended range of the surveyed depths up to 70m (for SSS) and up to 120m (for ES) allows to work on the shelf.
Simple installation, quick mounting provides work on any vessel. SSS connects to a PC compatible computer with Microsoft ®Windows® operating system via an Ethernet port. The program HyScan, included in the package, provides scanning and data viewing in real time, recording and playback, measurement of object parameters. Built-in SSSE batteries allow you to work up to 8 hours or continuously in charging mode.

Application areas:

  • survey of the bottom, identification of relief features, various inhomogeneities
  • search for objects on the bottom and in the water column
  • echo-sounding survey
  • echo-sounding survey with instrumental estimation
  • engineering and ecological monitoring


  • easy to transport and store – all sonar in one case
  • wide range of SSS view, high quality images
  • built-in Li-ion battery
  • built-in course-roll-trim sensors
  • long battery life
