code: Kongsberg EM710
type: Multibeam Echosounder
description: The EM 710 multibeam echosounder is a high to very high resolution (up to 800 soundings per ping) seabed mapping system capable of meeting all relevant survey standards. The system configuration can be tailored to the user's requirement, allowing for choice of beam widths as well as transmission modes. The minimum survey depth is from less than 3 meters below the transducers, and the maximum depth is approximately 2000 meters, somewhat dependant upon array size. Across track coverage (maximum swath width 140º) is up to 5.5 times water depth, to a maximum survey depth more than 2000 meters. The along track beamwidth depends upon the chosen transmit transducer configuration with 0.5º, 1º and 2º available as standard. The receive beam width is either 1º or 2º depending on the chosen receive transducer. The EM 710 operates at sonar frequencies in the 70 to 100 kHz range. The transmit fan is divided into three sectors to maximize range capability, but also to suppress interference from multiples of strong bottom echoes. The sectors are transmitted sequentially within each ping, and uses distinct frequencies or waveforms.
