wmbs1The WMBS-series are ultra compact sonars designed specifically for use on even very small platforms. With low power consumption, the system may be operated for a full day on a single battery. NORBIT’s wideband multibeam technology allows long range real-time data collection, whilst simultaneously achieving very- high range resolution.

The WMBS-series are based on a flexible sonar platform that utilizes the latest in analog and digital signal processing. Combined with broad R&D expertise, NORBIT may adapt the hardware technology to allow for new applications that benefit from the advantages offered by a compact wideband multibeam sonar.
