Sonar for Dredging Environments

Environments found in Dredge Mining can be the most difficult for successful sonar operation. This is due to the high solids content in the water, bubbles and other factors. We have been involved with developing sonar systems to cope with these harsh environments since the mid 1990's.

Our clients include:

  • CRISTAL Broken Hill
  • Hatch Engineering

The main successes we have had are in developing systems for dredge pond floor mapping and shallow sub-bottom surveying as well as profiling the percent solids parameters as a function of depth in dredge and tailings ponds.
