Sub-Bottom Profilers

Sub-Bottom Profilers

SDI’s BSS+ is ideal for surveying in shallow water, harbors, and waterways and pre- and post-dredge applications.

Up to five frequencies, ranging from 3.5kHz to 200 kHz, can be utilized to provide depth and fine resolution sub-bottom profiling. Sub-bottom profiling in less than 1 foot of water depth is possible.

SDI’s hardened computers include armored display windows, marine grade aluminum display housings and non-corrosive impact resistant plastic cases with stainless steel hardware.  Display controls and hinges are o-ring sealed and connectors are waterproof or splash resistant. This computer can be upgraded in the future unlike most laptops.
