The new EM 3002 is an advanced multibeam echo sounder with high resolution and dynamically
focused beams (since then available as the EM 2040). It is well suited for detailed seafloor mapping and inspection with
typical water depths between 0.5 and 150 meters. EM 3002 uses a new powerful sonar
processor in combination with the same sonar head as the popular and highly acclaimed
EM 3000 system. The increase in processing power makes it possible to apply sophisticated
and exact signal processing algorithms for beamforming, beam stabilisation, and
The EM 3002 is the only high resolution multibeam system available in the market.
It incorporates real time electronic stabilisation for both pitch and roll which
ensures that the central beam always points directly below the vessel. The system
performance is stable even in foul weather conditions, and the overall quality of
the final chart/product is enhanced.
