The Kongsberg GeoSwath Compact Plus is a device that completes our range of equipment for shallow and extremely shallow waters. The inland and coastal waters is where most of the human aquatic activity takes place and our company is focused on offering quality services dedicated to shallow water environment.
The positioning and inertial corrections are done using the Applanix POS MV SurfMaster, a product released in April at Ocean Business 2015 in Southampton capable of RTK positioning.
Our initial tests have shown that it provides very good quality results even in water as shallow as 1.5 meters thanks to the 500 kHz frequency and inertial sensors for wave compensation. The device is lightweight and can be easily mounted on small vessels, even inflatable ones. We consider it to be a good choice for bathymetry surveys in crowded marinas, inland waters or coastal swallow water.
