Abstract

Development of acoustic technology by various parties has introduced a new technique in producing seabed data. This system is known as Multibeam Echosounder (MBES). The system can be a single transducer or a pair of transducers, which form a fan array of narrow beams that can obtain 100% bottom coverage and also can provide high-resolution footprints when narrowly, focused beams are formed (Figure 1). Furthermore, most of MBES collect acoustic backscatter information, which can produce side scan sonar digital imagery simultaneously. With this capability, MBES has the advantage in locating underwater rock, hazards, shoal, or other objects.
