Superior Performance Ultra High-Resolution Curved Array Bathymetric System.
NORBIT introduces the first cylindrical ultra-high resolution curved array bathymetric system, designed for rapid
anywhere anytime mobilization featuring the highest standard industry leading integrated GNSS/INS positioning system.
NORBIT WINGHEAD sonars are based on a state of the art analogue and digital platform featuring powerful signal
processing capabilities, offering roll stabilized bathymetry and several imagery and backscatter outputs ensuring the
highest quality survey data performance. With broad R&D expertise, NORBIT has developed – from the ground-up
– exciting new technology that allows existing and new applications to benefit from the advantages offered by a
compact wideband curved-array multibeam sonar.
The NORBIT WINGHEAD i77h is a compact ultra-high resolution curved array broadband multibeam sonar offering
tight integration with GNSS/INS (Applanix OceanMaster) that is designed for use in the most demanding operational
environments such as under bridges or in rough sea conditions. Characterised further by a small form factor; low
power draw and tight integration, WINGHEAD i77h installation can occur on surface survey platforms ranging from
small USVs to large vessel permanent hull mounts.
