UUV 3500

High resolution side scan sonar for unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs)

The UUV 3500 was developed as a side scan sonar with the unprecedented benefit of an advanced bathymetry payload for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs).

  • Unmatched image quality: superior low-frequency resolution and unsurpassed high-frequency resolution and range performance, resulting in high definition imagery.
  • Side scan images and bathymetry: the sonar engine simultaneously optimizes two different and concurrent output data streams for: photo quality side scan imagery and high accuracy, co-registered swath bathymetry.
  • Versatile operating modes: true dual-frequency operation to maximize across track resolution, and single-frequency operation to maximize data bandwidth resolution.
  • On-board processing: allowing for direct integration with CAD/CAC processing systems.
  • Software development kit: control the sonar directly, as well as display data using the Klein proprietary image display engine.
  • Easy to integrate into all portable UUVs: low power, compact and lightweight,
  • system electronics available as OEM or in watertight pressure case configuration.
  • Robust: Klein’s ruggedized transducers are built to last and perform in the most demanding environmental conditions.
