Klein was formed back in 1968 when Marty Klein, who many consider to be the father of side scan sonar, began building his own devices from his home in Lexington, Massachusetts. Over 50 years in business, Klein is headquartered in Salem, New Hampshire and is conveniently located approximately 30 miles Northwest of Boston, Massachusetts.
Klein’s business is structured into two business segments.
Klein, a wholly owned subsidiary of MIND Technology, Inc. became the first commercial manufacturer of side scan sonar in the world. Since then, Klein has become the world’s leading sensor technology provider that manufactures and designs high-resolution side scan and multi-beam sonar equipment, and radar-based security and surveillance systems. Our side scan sonar systems are respected as the standard of excellence in the industry and are deployed by Governments, Navies, Port Authorities, surveyors, oil companies and universities worldwide. Klein has developed a worldwide reputation of excellence in the industry by providing quality products and excellent customer service.
While our products are among the most reliable in the industry, there are times when service or technical advice is required after normal business hours. Throughout the world, Klein’s Side Scan Sonar, and HarborGuard® Maritime Security and Surveillance systems are in use daily. Klein’s service technicians for Side Scan Sonar systems, Bathymetric systems and all related products can normally diagnose problems with a simple telephone call. If you need help, call us anytime. Klein strives to provide the highest quality products and service to a wide range of Military and Commercial markets.
