Blueprint Subsea StarFish 452F Pro
Towed StarFish systems allow quick and easy, single person deployment making them ideal for shallow water survey applications. The innovative full-length tri-fin design provides a stable platform for improved image capture and the single tow-line cable keeps setup and operation as simple as possible.
The StarFish 452F Pro benefits from 450kHz CHIRP operation with a 0.8° horizontal beam width, these result in exceptional image quality over a swathe width of up to 200m.
STARFISH 452F PRO
Measuring less than 15 inches long the StarFish 452F Pro sonar is small enough to be transported in your rucksack. Lightweight and quick to deploy by hand, the 452F Pro towed system is independent of the boat requiring no fixed installation which makes it easy to transport and operate from any vessel.
Designed to be ‘Plug and Play’, connecting to your Windows PC or laptop via a USB connection, the StarFish 452F Pro comes with software to allow the capture and recording real-time images from the seafloor below, making seabed imaging an easy process.
450kHz CHIRP operation with up to a 200m swathe width, towed StarFish ideal for survey applications.
- Frequency: 450kHz CHIRP
- Range: Up to 100m (328ft) per channel
- Beam: 0.8° horiz 60° vert
- Cable: 20m (65ft) or 50m (164ft)
Exceptional image quality in a compact and rugged form factor. Specifically designed for shallow water survey work, the StarFish range offers towed, hull-mounted and OEM systems.
Towed StarFish systems allow quick and easy, single person deployment making them ideal for survey work and Search And Rescue (SAR) applications. The innovative full-length tri-fin design provides a stable platform for improved image capture and the single tow-line cable keeps setup and operation as simple as possible.
OEM StarFish systems are lightweight and extremely compact. The transducers offer multiple mounting options to allow easy ROV and AUV integration.
All StarFish systems utilise CHIRP technology and are available in 450kHz for increased range and 1MHz for improved resolution.
