Imagenex 878 RGB
The Imagenex Model 878 “RGB” Sidescan Sonar is the next generation in high-resolution side-scan sonar. The unit runs three simultaneous sonars on each side at different sound wavelengths, providing enhanced image clarity and now, for the first time, the ability to discriminate targets based on their acoustic “color”. Just as your eyes see in color, the RGB sonar uses different wavelengths of sound, translating them directly to colors on the display of a Windows™ based laptop or desktop PC. To further enhance these unique sonar capabilities, the towfish is equipped with an echo sounder and a built-in orientation module as well as depth and temperature sensors.
The Model 878 system comes as a completely integrated package including towfish, cable, GPS enabled surface interface box, and Microsoft Windows™ based real-time operation and data playback software, thus providing a complete, easy to use, but highly advanced acoustic bottom visualization system.
