3rd transducer


Is a third transducer really needed ?

Although an interferometer such as Bathyswath provides unparalleled data density, the geometry of the sonar means that this data density is relatively low in the region directly under the transducers.

This effect can be mitigated by overlapping swaths during the survey or by the use of:

Does Qinsy handle the third transducer ?

Yes, QINSy is fully compatible with Bathyswath-2 or 3 transducers systems. However, you have to use the extra channel that was put in specifically for sidescan, so you lose that function.
