Calibration Service

For accurate and repeatable quantitative measurements of fish and other aquatic resources, proper and periodic calibration of your echo sounder system is necessary when using hydroacoustic techniques such as echo integration and target tracking.

We offer calibration services for BioSonics scientific echo sounder systems using a reference-standard transducer in our hydroacoustic calibration facility. We provide our clients with the calibration results which include: Source Level (SL), Receive Sensitivity (RS), transducer beam pattern (i.e., circular or elliptical), and side-lobe characteristics.
