TS001 - Set of the towed side-scan sonar (SSS)

TS001 -  Set of the towed side-scan sonar (SSS).

Set of the towed side-scan sonar (SSS) provides operation with towed SSS of ultra-high resolution series Hydra° from the board of an inflatable boat.. It is used for search of sunken objects, monitoring of objects of underwater infrastructure, supervision of a condition of fairways and port water areas in regions with depths to 50 m.

The towed SSS uses a collapsible fairing, inside which is installed a H5s7ED sonar, a battery and a modem adapted for cable-rope operation.
The kit includes a collapsible ramp, compact winch with towing cable-rope, built-in Wi-Fi module, modem and rechargeable battery. The maximum cable-rope length is 100 m, which allows towing at depths up to 30 m. The winch is attached to the board of the inflatable boat using the included attachment.
Data exchange between the computer and the winch is carried out via Wi-Fi, between the winch and SSS - via cable-rope and cable modems.    
The maximum recommended separation of the SSS from the bottom is 20m, providing a maximum surveyed depth range of up to 50 metres.
SSS operates at the frequency of 700 kHz, and provides real-time high-quality image of the bottom with photographic quality and ultra-high resolution. Built-in rechargeable batteries allow you to work up to 12 hours without recharging.

Areas of application:

  • Swath survey of water areas
  • Search for objects at the bottom and in the water column
  • Engineering and ecological monitoring
  • Ensuring the safety of navigation
  • Depth measurements


  • Built-in rechargeable batteries
  • Great length of the cables
  • Wide  swath of capture of the SSS
  • Simplicity of transportation and storage - whole sonar in one case
  • Ability to recharge the built-in battery during operation
  • Long time of autonomous operation
  • Automatic adjustment to shooting conditions

Developed in cooperation with Moscow University of Physics and Technology (MIPT).Application of the most modern technologies in acoustics, microelectronics and hydrodynamics allowed to develop a compact and efficient model. The H5st7 is a monoblock SSS mounted in a removable streamlined towed body along with a sealed battery pack. The chosen " Y " - shaped hydrodynamic scheme with three ribs improves the stability of the SSS when towing. The SSS monoblock is mounted in the lower rib of the " Y " - shaped body.
The delivery set includes a tow cable-rope with a power eyelet and a sealed connector. The maximum length of the cable rope is 100m, which allows towing at depths of up to 30 meters. On the carrier ship, the power eyelet of the cable-rope is connected to the towed hook or other power fixture.  The electricalconnector of the cable-rope connects to Your laptop (Windows PC) via Ethernet.  
The maximum recommended distance of SSS from the bottom is 20m, while providing the maximum depth range surveyed up to 50m when towing, or up to 20m when on-Board mounting.
SSS operates at 700 kHz, and provides real-time high-quality image of the bottom with photographic quality in a swath of surwey up to 230m with ultra-high range resolution - of 1 cm in range.

The kit is placed in a small case and has a weight of 29 kg, which ensures its delivery to any water bodies.  The kit can be deployed on a boat from 3.5 meters long.  If necessary, the towed body can be attached to the side of the boat (work from the side) and connected to the computer via a cable adapter.
