A-2-Sea specialises in the acquisition and production of ultra-high resolution multibeam echo sounder (MBES) data for seabed mapping and nautical charting applications.
Data are acquired on board a dedicated in-house survey vessel (12-hr and 24-hr capability) mobilised with the latest generation shallow water multibeam echo sounder.
The Kongsberg EM2040 Compact shallow water multibeam (dual head, dual swath configuration), provides 1600 soundings per ping and a beam width of 0.7° x 0.7° making it ideally suited for the object detection requirements of nautical charting surveys. The dual swath capability allows for increased data density along-track, reducing the survey duration and making the system a more cost-effective option for our clients. A-2-Sea offers alternative MBES systems such as the R2Sonic 2024 and Reson SeaBat 7125 (both provide a 0.5° x 1° beam width at 400KHz).
A-2-Sea’s survey professionals are highly skilled FIG/IHO/ICA Category A accredited surveyors and offer over 10 years of nautical charting experience for UK based charting agencies. All surveyors are practised with the United Kingdom Civil Hydrography Programmes’ survey specification A and B.
