EdgeTech Sonar for UNH’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping
EdgeTech, the underwater technology specialist, has recently provided a 6205 MPES system to the University of New Hampshire’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC).
The EdgeTech 6205 multi phase echo sounder (MPES) produces 3D maps of the seafloor while providing co-registered simultaneous dual frequency side scan imagery.
The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC) has a close affiliation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and will utilize the EdgeTech 6205 for research and education dedicated to their missions of hydrographic science and ocean mapping.
The 6205 will be utilized in The Fundamentals of Ocean Mapping course this fall and deployed in other research activities at the center throughout the year, EdgeTech added.
