The Gemini 720i multibeam imaging sonar sets new standards for multibeam imaging sonars.
The Gemini 720i sonar provides real-time, crisp imagery of the underwater scene ahead, making Gemini the ideal technology for subsea sonar vision for obstacle avoidance or search and rescue (SAR) operations.
The sonar head weighs just over 1kg in water and is designed to be easily installed onto a variety of underwater vehicles and platforms. As a compact real-time high frequency imaging solution, Gemini 720i is also suitable for very small ROVs and AUVs.
Gemini 720i features a 720kHz operating frequency and state of the art processing electronics; an integrated sound velocity sensor assists in providing the sharpest image possible, with accurate ranging.
Gemini 720i is the ultimate multibeam imaging sonar producing images of superb clarity with the added benefit of real-time imaging. Gemini 720i can be integrated with a variety of world-class ROVs, including older models, through the use of Ethernet or VDSL communications.
Gemini 720i can be run with the Tritech Seanet Pro software package, allowing the Gemini to be networked with other Tritech sensors. A standalone Gemini software package is also available which offers users a tailored control and display interface. The standalone Gemini software offers features common with Seanet Pro such as data recording/ playback, screen capture, Range & Gain control, colour palette selection, cursor reporting and in addition offers an image filtering capability.
There is also the option to upgrade the standalone Gemini software to the Gemini SeaTec software for target tracking applications. Gemini SeaTec is specifically designed to detect the probability of objects and subsequently classifies such targets. Applications using the Gemini SeaTec software have included the tracking and detection of marine life around subsea turbine structures.
A software development kit is also available for autonomous vehicle operations.
The Gemini 720i technology is also available as a deep-rated sonar.
