Adaptable Towing Bodies for Inland Waters or Ocean Applications
The BioSonics BioFin is a durable, stable, dead weight towing body, featuring a long-lasting finish and ample mounting space for a variety of remote sensing hardware.
The BioFin is suitable for up to four transducers in a variety of configurations and performs well in heavy seas and at various towing speeds. BioSonics BioFins have been tested under a wide variety of loads and sea-states and have proven more stable than typical hydrodynamic vehicles. At only four feet (123cm) in length the BioFin is easy to handle but provides ample mounting space for additional oceanographic, water quality or video equipment.
BioSonics offers dual axis rotators as an option for transducer mounting in deployments which require precise or variable aiming angles. With this option, rotator positional data is time-stamped and integrated with the acoustic data stream, providing extremely accurate real-world target position information.
TOWING CABLES AND CUSTOM MOUNTS
BioSonics offers a complete line of armored transducer cables for the DT-X Series Scientific Echosounders.
These can be used for a variety of towing or challenging deployment applications. BioSonics Scientists and engineers have unparalleled experience in designing custom mounting systems to safely deploy and protect transducers in virtually any aquatic environment and work closely with users to develop the winning strategy for successful hydroacoustic studies.
