MMT Group has announced that its new Kongsberg EM2040D. A 0.4 x 0.7 degree dual head multibeam system has been installed on MMT’s long term charted multipurpose support vessel Stril Explorer.
This is a highly developed multibeam echo sounder that combines all of the advanced features of deepwater echo sounders to the shallower water or ROV/AUV environment. Such features include:
– Dual swath per ping to maintain a high survey speed at maintained resolution,
– FM chirp to achieve a much longer range capability,
– Complete roll, pitch and yaw stabilization,
– Near-field focusing both when transmitting and receiving.
By owning and operating an EM2040 dual head on Stril Explorer, MMT is further prepared to perform surveys that meet the IHO-S44 special order and fulfills the requirement for high resolution pipeline inspection.
