The Sea Scan® ARC Explorer towfish is constructed using hard anodised billet aluminum, stainless-steel and durable polymers. It features a built-in variable angle tow point for ultimate imaging flexibility.
Field replaceable transducers allow the user to quickly adapt the sonar to various conditions without compromising range or resolution. Up to four frequencies can be installed on the same towfish at any time and its modular construction minimises the maintenance costs and maximises upgrade capability.
Marine Sonic Technology’s Sea Scan® ARC Explorer towfish will include removable fins. With only one screw, clients can remove all four back fins, resulting in a slimmer profile to fit a smaller case. This allows better portability in the same rugged style. We are also introducing our first towfish with a wet-mate towcable connector for added system safety.
The system is powered by AC or DC voltage and comes with a quick-release mechanism as standard, in order to prevent the loss of the towfish should it strike an object during the survey.
The ARC Generation will continue to use the highly praised Sea Scan® Survey acquisition and review software, which is designed for Windows-based PCs and is widely known for its ease of use.
