Over the past months, R2Sonic and our Global Partners have had huge turnouts in Sonic Wideband Multibeam System demonstrations around the World. From Brest Harbour to Rotterdam, Genoa, Ravenna, Copenhagen, Gdynia, Cape Town to New York, Seattle to Pearl Harbor, Singapore, Tianjin, Yangtze River to Tokyo Bay and other points in between, customers around the world have been impressed with Sonic 2024 performance as demonstrated in their local environments.
Participants have included full range of Hydrographic users from major Hydrographic & Military Offices, Offshore and Dredging Contractors, Oil and Gas Companies, Telecoms, Maritime Academies, Universities and Research Organizations, Port Authorities to Engineering and Survey Companies.
The worldwide exposure has provided the unique opportunity to demonstrate Sonic 2024 high performance capabilities over vastly different complex environments and depths on many types of survey vessels of opportunity. A great variety of Sonic demos have been performed from shallow breakwater surveys, channel surveys in brackish estuarine environments, port surveys, post dredge surveys following suction dredger, pipeline free-span detection surveys to 180m depths, cable surveys, harbour surveys over rocky outcrops to surveying high slope oceanic shelf areas to 400m depths in challenging sea states.
“Participants have been particularly impressed with the Sonic 2024 overall flexibility as a survey tool over other commercially available multibeam systems” stated R2Sonic VP Sales, Cris Sabo. The combination of frequency and swath agility, simplicity of operation, reliability and high quality data output is now widely proven and translated in strong system sales to customers over five Continents. Every demonstration has been a success and global sales over past eight months since Sonic Wideband Multibeam System launch have exceeded our expectations. Customers are even trading in fully functional competitor multibeam systems with purchase of new Sonic systems. It’s been remarkable to see so much interest and achieve acceptance for our products in such a short period of time.
