Our EM 3000 multibeam echo sounder has been installed on a Norwegian ULA class submarine.
The system will be upgraded to an EM 3002 later this year ( the EM 3002 is now available in a newer version the EM 2040).
New navigation concept
The information from the echo sounder allows the submarine to optimise navigation
while submerged. The Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) is developing
a new concept for underwater navigation and the data produced by the EM 3002 will
play a vital part. The system is also useful when bottoming the submarine. Successful
preliminary tests have been done with the EM 3000 and the users onboard are enthusiastic.
