Next Generation of StarFish Systems Launched At UUVS

Next Generation of StarFish Systems Launched At UUVS

The intuitive, shallow water, high specification side scan sonar range now includes the higher resolution StarFish 452F and StarFish 990F; providing ultra sharp images from the signature full-body, compact, three-fin, hydrodynamic design. The imaging capabilities of the StarFish range are further enhanced through the application of Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) and digital-signal-processing (DSP) techniques


StarFish 452F builds on the success of the original StarFish 450F, offering improved resolution with the same long acoustic range of 100m/ 300ft per channel.

StarFish 990F is the side scan sonar of choice for high resolution survey in ports and harbours, and inland waterways such as rivers and canals. With detailed image definition and target detection, StarFish 990F is also ideal for Search and Recovery (SAR) operations.

Launched in 2007, StarFish set new standards in side scan technology for shallow water survey work. This has led to the development of a complete range of StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems, providing a host of applications including: Law Enforcement/ Homeland Security, Wreck Location/ Archaeology Survey, Engineering, Dive Clubs and Academic Research.

StarFish systems are designed with the user in mind; offering true plug-and-play technology, they are all powered by user-friendly StarFish Scanline software. A Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for download free of charge from the StarFish website, allowing users to integrate a StarFish side scan system into their own software package.

Ben Grant, Product Line Manager for Starfish, comments:

"StarFish has gained world-wide recognition as the most portable and affordable towed side scan sonar on the market. Clearly the next step in its product development was to create a range of StarFish side scan sonars to satisfy industry demand for greater image definition and target detection. By launching this range of StarFish Seabed Imaging Systems, Tritech is further supporting the survey market with high-resolution, portable, yet affordable devices."
