Teledyne RESON, part of Teledyne Maritime Group, is to supply its SeaBat 7123-MkII forward-looking sonar for two new-build mine countermeasure vessels (MCMV) for an unidentified customer, according to a company statement.

The SeaBat 7123-MkII is an advanced, dual-use high-resolution forward-looking sonar suitable for a wide range of applications and platforms, including both surface vessels and underwater vehicles. In commercial use, it delivers super high-resolution imaging for underwater inspection-related tasks, such as long-range detection of objects in the water column or on the seabed, and the sonar can be used as a platform for scientific and oceanographic research applications. The SeaBat 7123-MkII can be integrated on a variety of surface and underwater platforms, and is especially useful for unmanned vessels for detecting and classifying objects on the seabed in real time.

In naval use, the sonar is a vital component in MCM systems for detection of mine-like objects at long distances. The high-resolution image enhancement solution not only provides a clearer image but, combined with machine learning algorithms, provides unprecedented real-time computer aided detection and tracking, supporting operator ability to classify objects.

Teledyne Marine innovation continuously focuses on developing market-leading sonars with state-of-the-art image enhancement features. The sonars for this order will be delivered with the newest features that include machine learning and AI,” commented Ole Søe-Pedersen, VP of Teledyne Marine Europe.
