TruePix™ Compressed Water Column

All R2Sonic MBES also support TruePix™ Compressed Water Column. TruePix™ is an exclusive, unique functionality developed by R2Sonic that has the benefit of simultaneously reporting backscatter and water column imagery.

TruePix™ is independent from bottom detection and therefore can report targets in the water column. It consists in recording one sample data per range bin and per side (starboard and portside).  This format delivers highly compressed water column imagery data (1% of traditional water column files), which enables real time water column data processing.

In addition, TruePix™ returns amplitude, range and angle for each target, which ensures unmatched accuracy and precision.

The TruePix™ option is embedded in all R2Sonic systems and can easily be enabled from the field with option purchase.
