Starfish 990F XD System (BP00181)

Manufacturer: TRITECH

Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 weeks

The ultimate high resolution StarFish side scan sonar for extreme image definition and target detection. Based on the popular and proven 450F design, the StarFish 990F uses high frequency 1MHz acoustic 'chirped' pulses with a 0.3° horizontal beam width to produce the most defined and clear images from any StarFish system. With a 35m range capability on each channel (giving 70m total swathe coverage), the StarFish 990F is the ideal tool for high resolution surveys in ports & harbours, academic research, inland waterways such as rivers and canals, and excels when used for SAR (Search And Recovery/Rescue) operations.

StarFish is a revolutionary side scan sonar system that produces spectacular images of the seabed. Built to a unique, innovative design, the StarFish 990F sonar is currently the smallest towed side scan sonar (towfish) on the market measuring less than 15 inches long! Utilising technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish makes high-tech seabed imaging accessible to anyone.

The compact hydrodynamic full body three-fin design improves stability of the sonar while it’s being towed which in-turn helps improve the quality of images it produces.  The sonar also incorporates and inline connector to allow the cable to be swapped or replaced on site.  Additional cable lengths are also available to help you choose the best towing solution for your needs.

Designed to be 'Plug and Play', connecting to your Windows PC or laptop via a USB connection, the StarFish 990F comes with software to allow the capture and recording real-time images from the seafloor below, making seabed imaging easy for everyone.

Measuring less than 15 inches long the StarFish 990F sonar is small enough to be transported in your rucksack.  Lightweight and quick to deploy by hand, the 990F towed system is independent of the boat requiring no fixed installation which makes it easy to transport and operate from any vessel.  The StarFish Peli Case provides a rugged and watertight method for transporting and storing your StarFish system.


FEATURES:

  • Smallest Towfish Side Scan Sonar available
  • Pioneering, innovative design
  • Easily transportable - fits in a small rucksack
  • Plug and Play USB interface to any Windows PC
  • Easily powered from almost any source Simple, intuitive software

     

STARFISH TOWED SYSTEMS

Simply tow the StarFish Towed Side Scan Sonar from a boat or any other vessel, large or small, to capture real-time digital images of the seafloor below. StarFish is truly 'Plug and Play' connecting to any Windows based PC or laptop via a USB connection. The simple intuitive StarFish Scanline software makes seabed imaging extremely easy for novices and experienced side scan sonar users alike. Small, light and very rugged, StarFish can easily be deployed and operated by a single person from the smallest of vessels in the most remote locations. 

The StarFish 990F Seabed Imaging System consists of the StarFish 990F Towed Side Scan Sonar, StarFish 990 Top Box and StarFish Scanline software. The Sonar connects to the Top Box. The Top Box then connects to the power source and any Windows based PC or Laptop via a USB connection to display, record and playback digital sonar images using StarFish Scanline software.

The customer must supply: 

  • DC power supply 9V-28V (i.e. battery)
  • PC or Laptop (with USB port and Windows 2000, XP or Vista)

The latest digital electronics and acoustic CHIRP signal processing techniques used by StarFish combine to offer far better image and range resolution compared to conventional fixed-frequency side scan sonars.

The simple intuitive StarFish Scanline software makes seabed imaging extremely easy for novices and experienced side scan sonar users alike.

The superior high quality images produced by StarFish make it a very affordable low-cost side scan sonar option compaired to many of the larger expensive commercial side scan sonar systems


APPLICATIONS:

The StarFish Seabed Imaging System can be used for literally hundreds of underwater applications. Any time you require near photographic quality images of the seafloor, for work or play, in clear or low visibility waters, StarFish can deliver.  Listed below are just some of the more common applications for the StarFish Seabed Imaging System.
  • Engineering - Salvage operations, inspection of coastal structures, planning of seafloor installations, dredging operations, pipeline / cable location and inspection, dam inspection, location of sunken logs from lumber operations.
  • Law Enforcement / Homeland Security - Search and recovery operations, retrieval of submerged evidence from a crime scene, guide diver search operations, survey crash sites or accident scenes, recovery of sunken vehicles, search for mines and other explosives, harbour patrol, mapping of territorial waterways.
  • Wreck Location / Archaeological Survey - Wreck and cargo discovery, dive site navigation, identify wreck orientation, wreck debris discovery, identify possible man-made structures for investigation, marine archaeology, identify potential hazards before divers enter the water.
  • Academic and Research - Geological surveys, environmental studies of the seafloor, marine biology, reef monitoring, hazardous waste site assessment, hydrographic surveys, monitor changes to seafloor and habitat over time, identify the structure and composition of the seafloor.
  • Dive Clubs - Discover new and exciting dive sites, locate the best approach to a dive site, identify potential hazards before divers enter the water, identify interesting artifacts (like shipwrecks) in local waters, obtain digital images of known dive sites for reference and mapping.
