JW Fishers Side Scan Sonar SSS-600K Metal Detector
Ideal for Law Enforcement and Dive Rescue Operations. It Produces Very High Resolution Images at Ranges up to 500′
Side scan sonar is one of the most effective tools for underwater exploration because it can search a large area quickly and produce a detailed picture of anything on the bottom, regardless of water clarity. When looking at a side scan image it appears as if the water has been removed and the operator is getting an unobstructed view of the ocean floor, lake bottom, or river bed. High resolution images are sent from the towfish to a topside computer (included with the system) for display and storage.
Fishers SONAR VIEW software gives the operator complete control over the systems operating parameters. Choose between 10 different scan ranges and 8 color schemes to display images. Connect a GPS and position coordinates are automatically captured with the side scan data. Point the mouse on a target and the GPS position coordinates for the target are displayed on the screen.
The high frequency SSS-600K side scan produces excellent resolution images when scanning with a 10 meter to 75-meter range setting. The 5-meter range produce good images, but lack the sharpness of the higher ranges. The SSS-600K is ideal for law enforcement and dive rescue operations or any operation that requires a high resolution image. It produces high resolution images at ranges up to 75m (150m swath. This high frequency sonar will show everything that the low frequency sonars can see, plus small and soft targets like a drowning victim, clothing, etc., that the lower frequency (100K to 300K) sonars have difficulty detecting. The 600K side scan is also popular with wreck hunters and archaeologists searching for old wood vessels that may be broken up or decomposing. The limitation of the 600K is its shorter range as compared to the 100K side scan. The range settings in meters are: 5, 10, 25, 50, and 75 meters (each side).
