Featured Applications


Dredgers must perform surveys in advance of any project to determine its size and scope. Multibeam echosounders are critical for evaluating the consistency of the river or seabed floor, and determining its mix of types of sediment.

Quay Walls / Vertical Structures

Quay wall and vertical structures must be planned and evaluated as they are built, inspected upon completion, and must undergo regular inspection and preventive maintenance.

Pipeline Inspections

Pipelines must be planned and evaluated as they are being installed, inspected upon completion, and undergo regular inspection, preventive maintenance, and any repair projects.

  • The Sonic 2022 is user friendly and provides flexible integration with ancillary sensors and software; coupled with high quality bathymetric output, this system provides a very robust solution for all hydrographic applications across its operating spectrum.
    — Michel C. Goguen, Canadian Hydrographic Service, Central & Artic Region, Canada
  • The Sonic Wideband Multibeam systems have proven to be exceptional assets for our offshore operations. We are replacing our shallow water Multibeam inventory with Sonic systems resulting in higher performance with significant reduction in acquisition, maintenance and inventory costs.
    — Pietro Basciano, Director, Geological Assistance & Services, Italy
  • The Sonic 2024 wideband multibeam echosounder was quick and simple to integrate into our AUVs and aong with the accuracy and stability of an AUV platform produced excellent results.  The ease of integration, reliability, quality and resolution, increased useable swath coverage and low power consumption makes the system a suitable replacement for ageing AUV multibeam systems
