The DT-X Extreme is an innovative and versatile echo sounder system that expands your data collection opportunities. The DT-X Extreme operates with a split beam or single beam transducers and can be operated as:
The DT-X Extreme includes our patented data collection and analysis software, and produces accurate, high resolution water column data and results for fisheries management and research, and for studies on communities of biological organisms and physical elements of marine and freshwater ecosystems – including fish schools and individuals, plankton, nekton, mammals, birds, debris, oil droplets, gas bubbles, and more. # echosounders
The DT-X SUB is a completely self-contained echo sounder solution for autonomous deployments where cabling to the surface may be cost-prohibitive or impractical. DT-X scientific echo sounder technology is packaged in a pressure rated housing that is adaptable for deployment via AUV, ROV, or seafloor observatory platform. Applications Long-term, self-contained, autonomous deployments Seabed mount, mid-water mooring, surface buoy Modular OEM integration with AUV, ASV, ROV platforms Biological ocean observation Fish size, distribution, and abundance Marine mammal detection Plankton distribution and vertical migration School detection and single target detection
DT-X AMS Automated Monitoring Systems are designed for fixed location, long-term or permanent deployments to observe the underwater environment over a period of weeks, months or even years at a time. DT-X AMS can be customised to monitor and automatically report on passage, migration and entrainment of fish, marine mammals and debris at cooling water intakes, dams, marine hydrokinetic projects, spillways, screens, fish bypass and other structures.
Our complete Aquatic Habitat Echo Sounder System lets you simultaneously acquire submerged aquatic vegetation, substrate, and bathymetry data using BioSonics’ Visual Acquisition software. In addition, with our Visual Aquatic software you can instantly create layered, colored, and contoured maps. Map submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) Map eelgrass and other habitat areas Monitor invasive aquatic weeds Delineate areas of sand, mud, rock Generate contour profiles Shallow water mapping Mobile survey deployment from small boats or research vessels in lakes, rivers, estuaries, or shallow marine environments. OEM version for ASVs and ROVs features a compact electronics package ideal for small, autonomous, and remotely operated vehicles.
Omnidirectional Marine Life Observer is the first of its kind—providing 360 sound underwater insights using BioSonics’ unique mammal-friendly sonar. A Long-range target detection, classification and reporting system, the Marine Life Observer gives those working to understand, explore, protect, and develop marine resources the ability to gather reliable scientific data—information crucial in making informed decisions that support the sustainable economic growth of the Blue Economy while preserving the health of the environment. Unbiased data and data analysis includes location, depth, behaviour, general type of marine life, and noteworthy environmental changes, and can be used in permitting, supporting data-driven policy setting, location selection, monitoring, maintenance of long-term operations, and more.
Data in Real-Time
In addition to detecting a target from afar, the Omnidirectional Marine Life Observer can determine whether a target is likely to interact with the marine energy device or simply pass it by and can offer early warning of debris or marine life intrusion. Continuous, real-time monitoring of complex and constantly changing underwater environments means that concerns or problems can be addressed immediately.
The BioSonics Aquaculture Biomass Monitor (ABM) is a fully automated sonar system for biomass measurement in salmon in net pen aquaculture. The ABM collects data from thousands of fish per day and automatically generates reports presented on the customer’s Dashboard and accessible from anywhere. Access to real-time and historical data informs decision making and helps operators: Increase feed efficiency Maximize productivity Monitor fish growth, weight, and behavior Detect escapement or disease Provide important insights on the overall health of net pen populations The Aquaculture Biomass Monitor is an easy-to-use, robust, fully autonomous, buoy mounted echo sounder system that operates continuously in the net pen, collecting data from the entire water column, automatically calculating the size, depth, and swim speed for each fish detected. Advanced software has been developed to create fully customizable, easy to understand reports, automatically transmitted via the Internet to feed barge operators and management.
