H5se1 is a side scan sonar (SSS) with echo sounder (ES)


H5se1 is the Hydra™ side scan sonar (SSS) with the built-in survey echo sounder (ES) of  onboard placement. Operating frequencies of 100 kHz (SSS) and 400 kHz (ES) allow operation at depths up to 400m.
An effective method of side scan sonar is used to search for objects on large areas, which allows to reduce the time of work and material costs.
Small-sized narrow-profile design of the SSS allows you to place it on board of any vessel on a rod with a cross section of 25x50mm with minimal immersion. The special way of fastening on a bar allows to protect SSS from blow and to reduce risk of its breakage.
Sonar survey of the water area is carried out by the SSS placed on Board of a moving carrier (vessel, boat, boat, etc.), allowing to obtain a digital high-quality detailed acoustic image of the bottom in real time. Built-in survey echo sounder allows you to perform depth measurements. To increase the efficiency, an echo sounder survey with instrumental verification can be used.
The SSS provides high range resolution (3.5 cm) for object search and target detection. The recommended depth range of up to 300 m (for SSS) and up to 400 m (for ES) allows a offshore operation. Simple installation, using materials at hand or quick-release mount, ensures work on any vessel.  The SSS connects to a PC compatible computer with Microsoft ® Windows ® Operating System via an Ethernet port. The HyScan program included in the delivery set provides real-time scanning and viewing of data, recording and subsequent playback, measurement of object parameters. Built-in batteries of the sonar SSSE allow you to work up to 8 hours or continuously in booster charge mode.


  • survey of the bottom, identification of terrain features, various inhomogeneities
