@etienne Uffe did mention in one of the comments that “I think it is rather interesting what we we will have already this Spring!” So I wouldn’t put a scanning sonar past him or the company. He has a pretty good track record with making affordable side scan sonars. A LittleEye towfish with a scanning sonar on a BlueROV2 will be a very powerful combination for finding things in shallow water.
Paul, what are sonars like the Coda Octopus that give a vertical picture classed as?
I’m not sure but I’d guess it’s some sort of 3D multi-scanning sonar. Speaking of which I’ve been reading up on the Raymarine Axiom Realvision 3D. Looks like you can get a complete system for as low as $1,100.
FYI, Imagenex also offers Side Scanning Sonars that can be mounted onto an ROV:
any idea how much those run?
@piercet - Around $3,500 - $4,000 USD
