Taking the MS400P multibeam echo sounder as an example, the typical system composition diagram is as follows:
Multibeam is a "line-to-surface" measurement method. Hundreds or even thousands of water depth points perpendicular to the track direction can be obtained in one measurement. measurement results.
No matter how the measurement is encrypted with a Singlebeam, it cannot be compared with the full coverage measurement of multiple beams.
From the above-mentioned multi-beam system composition, it can be seen that the multi-beam bathymetric system is still very complex. It contains many auxiliary pieces of equipment, and many components are indispensable. However, the unmanned surveying ship itself is small in size and complex and diverse. Each part of the multi-beam must be small enough, otherwise, it cannot be installed, and the highly integrated product reduces the total equipment volume, wiring and other solutions, and successfully reduces the difficulty of carrying unmanned ships.
03 Calibration-free Installation
In the next ten years, the underwater era must be a big explosion. Various unmanned platforms, surface type and underwater type are equipped with various detection sonars to complete various projects. We can even imagine such a scenario:
（1）Unmanned Platform Surveying is much easier
Various unmanned carriers are equipped with multi-beams of various specifications, and network measurements are performed during the limited measurement window period. Unmanned and efficient, the operator is sitting on the mother ship drinking coffee
（2）One Device for Multi-function
In the future, one "multi-beam" can realize multi-beam mode sounding, Sidescan Sonar mode image analysis, and image sonar mode to achieve target dynamic monitoring and other functions. The multi-beam technology developed by Haizhuo Co., Ltd. has been at the forefront of technology.
（3）Big Data Analysis
In this era, everyone is managing to get more data. Since more data means more possibilities, historical comparison, evolutionary deduction and many other things that we dare not think about before.
