Denmark: RESON Offers Free FP3 System Upgrade to SEABAT Clients

The RESON Group is offering existing SEABAT 7125 SV2 customers the opportunity to upgrade their systems with RESONs Feature Pack 3, (FP3) totally, free of charge.

Feature Pack 3 has taken all the benefits of FP2 and added two new features, TRACKER and SEABAT UI, to provide users with increased efficiency in a wide range of survey operations.

TRACKER is a totally automated mode of operation, where the system sets all parameters, differing from the existing autopilot which is based on a lookup table. TRACKER is initiated from the user interface and once selected no other operator input is required.

SEABAT UI is a completely redesigned graphical user interface (GUI), which runs on Windows 7 64-bit to provide the optimum in processing power and brings a fresh new feel to the user without losing the critical information the operator needs to control the system.

Kim Lehmann, CEO of RESON said, “In talking to and working with our customers, we have identified new upgrades that offer our clients increased efficiency of their RESON systems. Our new FP3 provides a number of new software features, which significantly increase the flexibility and performance of the SV2 systems.”

Recent Sea Trials of the FP3 were conducted in the Huememe Canyon from the Channel islands harbor near Ventura, some 50 miles north of Los Angeles, California, where water depth varied from around 5m to in excess of 150m.

RESON is a market leader in underwater acoustic sensors, state-of-the-art echosounders, multibeam sonar systems, transducers, hydrophones, and PDS2000 software. RESON’s SeaBat sonar’s and NaviSound echosounder systems have become an industrial standard in areas such as hydrography, dredging and offshore operations as well as within defense and security applications.

Thanks to continued product and technology development, RESON leads its technological field. The company is growing and expanding into new markets and application areas – and its fourth generation of sonar systems will provide unprecedented performance for naval and commercial systems in terms of accuracy, resolution, depth rating, and range.

The RESON group of companies consists of RESON A/S with Headquarters in Denmark and entities in US, Holland, Scotland, Singapore and Germany.
