Digital CTFM search and
 obstacle avoidance sonar

SUNWEST is the world's leading manufacturer of  CTFM (Continuous Transmission Frequency Modulated) sonar.   

The SUPER SEARCH 'SS300' is a digital, forward-scanning CTFM sonar which was introduced to the market in 2001. 

The SS300  incorporates all of the outstanding features of the early CTFM sonar systems, with new, improved digital technology to provide a number of  unique features.  

The SS300 provides:  

  longer range;  

  the BEACON mode provides the ability to receive pinger / beacons over a range of 20 to 50 kHz;  

  the standard model (SS300) provides for RS-422 or RS-485  interface;  

  the SS300-LL model provides long line, high speed drivers to work over a single twisted shielded pair (TSP) for extreme ocean depth.   

Unlike any other sonar system on the market today, the SS300 series provides the much sought-after audio signal which is so useful in locating and classifying a target.   The sonar provides dual frequency capability for maximum range and resolution with interlaced FFT processing.   

The data acquisition and display software is a Windows 2000 based program.  This program allows operators to record data and replay later for project analysis.
