Capture real-time digital images of the seabed below with a StarFish Seabed Imaging System; unique side scan sonar systems from Tritech.

StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems are some of the most portable, shallow-water side scan sonars available on the market and have been designed with portability and simplicity in mind.
Built to a unique, innovative design StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems have been specifically designed for the professional underwater survey industry and utilise advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology. StarFish systems are designed to be plug & play, connecting to your Windows PC or laptop via a USB connection. The simple set-up means you have the ability to capture real-time, high resolution, digital images at longer ranges without reducing quality.

Technology and Applications:

The key features of our StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems include:

High Performance
Using the latest digital electronics and acoustic Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) and digital-signal-processing (DSP) techniques, StarFish systems offer greater image and range resolution compared to conventional fixed-frequency side scan sonars.

It is through the application of these techniques, which enables StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems to detect small, closely spaced targets at far greater distances than conventional style frequency, monotonic systems. The superior high quality images StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems can produce make the range very affordable as a low-cost side scan sonar option, compared to many of the larger and more expensive commercial side scan sonar systems.

Simple Operation
StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems are designed with the user in mind; offering true 'plug & play' technology, powered by user-friendly StarFish Scanline software. The simple intuitive StarFish Scanline software makes seabed imaging extremely easy for novices and experienced side scan sonar users alike.

A Software Development Kit (SDK) is also available for download free of charge, allowing advanced users to integrate a StarFish Seabed Imaging System into their own or existing software package.

Advanced Design
Built with the signature full-body, three-fin hydro-dynamic design, StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems are the smallest on the market.

Key Market Applications

StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems are ideal for shallow water survey applications in water depths up to 30m/100ft. Use the StarFish system to map a waterway, identify a target site or identify potential hazards before divers enter the water.

Search and Rescue (SAR) / Law Enforcement
Assist in the identification of submerged evidence from a crime scene allowing retrieval of evidence or Search for mines and other explosives and perform harbour patrol.

Wreck Hunting/ Archaeological Survey/ Academic and Research
Wreck and cargo discovery, dive site navigation, wreck debris discovery, marine archaeology, professional geological surveys and marine environment monitoring.

Engineering
Salvage operations, inspection of coastal structures, planning of seafloor installations, dredging operations, pipeline/ cable location and inspection and damn inspection.
