MX Aquatic Habitat Echosounder
The world's only dedicated aquatic habitat mapping and assessement system, the MX is a turn key solution with internal DGPS all housed in a rugged weather resistant housing. Easily deployed from any boat, the MX includes Visual Habitat software for easy, rapid data processing and generating transect maps in KML format.
Fish habitat survey
Delineating mud, sand, cobble
DT-X SUB - Submersible Automous Echosounder
The BioSonics DT-X SUB Echosounder System is a completely self-contained echosounder solution for autonomous deployments where cabling to the surface may be cost-prohibitive or impractical. DT-X scientific echosounder technology is packaged in a pressure rated housing that is adaptable for deployment via AUV, ROV, or seafloor observatory platform.
The DT-X SUB is programmed at the surface for the desired sampling interval and ping rate. The DT-X SUB has programmable duty cycling for extended battery life, is ideal for long term studies, and will operate any of BioSonics standard transducers.
Let us help you configure a DT-X SUB system to match your study objectives. We are happy to answer any questions and look forward to assisting you. Contact us today for details.
Visual Habitat Software
Post-Processing Software for DT-X and MX Echosounder Systems. Data ouput includes bathymetry, submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), and substrate type. Export to Excel for GIS mapping or straight to KML and sharing your results in Google Earth. Visualize your results like never before and generate maps in seconds. View synchronized echogram and map views. Easy to learn, easy to use!
VisAcq AutoTrack Software
An add-on module to Visual Acquisition that works as a real-time processing tool and automatically builds and records fish track lists. Simply configure and collect data as usual, open a CSV file to access the information you need. Nothing coudl be easier and, best of all, it's automatic...no further analysis or additional software required to obtain usable information for fisheries management. Save hours of valuable time, it's quick, easy, and automatic.
