Digital Chirp and Pinger Sub-Bottom Profiler with Versatile Mounting Options.
Kongsberg GeoAcoustics GeoPulse Plus is the latest and most technically advanced Sub Bottom Profiling system on the market. Its digital processing and waveform selection technology enables the
appropriate pulse-shape, power signature and configuration to be selected for the job in hand, whether it’s mapping the geology in deep oceans or determining mud thickness in a silted
Traditional sub bottom profilers utilise single frequency fixed length "pinger" type pulses, which reflect from sub sea layers to map the morphology. With the advent of chirp
technology and advances in digital processing techniques in the 1990s the science took a step forward with frequency modulated pulses - waveforms that encompass a range of frequencies.
The new GeoPulse Plus system combines the best features of both these technologies and adds higher transmit power combined with digitisation of the return signals at source. Massive
over-sampling of the received signals provides high resolution 24 bit data.
