Overview & Scope
G-tec has developed a different high resolution imaging methods and device producing instantaneous images of both moving and stationary objects below the water surface.
The visualization of the underwater world can solve problems encountered on a large variety of project or activities such as:

Online Inspection, site characterisation & work progress monitoring can be performed for activities such as:
Side Scan Sonar - SSS
A side scan sonar is an instrument that uses ultrasonic fan-shaped pulses to produce high resolution images of the seafloor. Contrary to other methods, like seismic reflection, side scan sonar is entirely dedicated to bottom imaging. It is usually towed behind a boat and can fully cover large areas in a short time.
It can be used to detect objects on, or characterize the nature of the bottom. The former can be done by examining and measuring the targets spotted on the data, and particularly the shadows they cast, the second by comparing areas with different intensity of reflection: the lesser the intensity, the softer the material on the bottom.
Imaging sonar is high frequency imaging solution, providing clear and detailed real-time underwater images. Imaging sonar is recommended for activities such as :
