Showcased the StarFish side-scanning sonar system, which uses their latest acoustic technology and signal processing techniques to bring high-quality underwater imagery in a compact, lightweight and rugged package.
According to Blueprint: “Our StarFish entry level sonar system 450 F, combines 450kHz chirped operation with a 1.7° horizontal beam width; where as the StarFish 425F is our most popular system, combining 450kHz chirped operation with a 0.8° horizontal beam width for higher definition. But the StarFish 990F is our highest definition system, combining 1MHz chirped operation with a 0.3° horizontal beam width, commonly used for search-and-rescue applications."
Blueprint Subsea’s Artemis Pro handheld diver sonar and navigation computer / consoles are ideal for special operations forces and for naval search-and-rescue. Features of the range include:
- Forward Looking Sonar (e.g. Blueprint Subsea‘s Oculus M-Series single &dual frequency sonars)
- DVL Dead-Reckoning Navigation
- GPS/GNSS Navigation Float
- Depth, Heading, Attitude & Immersion Sensors
- Logging of Sonar, Navigation & Dive Data
- S57/S63 Charting
Artemis Pro has also been significantly optimised for use by naval mine clearance and EOD divers for locating and navigating their way through low visibility waters to targets as safer alternative to conducting circular or tactile searches to locate and identify objects on the seabed.
