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, 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.
