Area Coverage Rate (ACR) Table showing the speed vs range capability of the KATFISH and MINSAS 180 Sonar
The KATFISH™ system is comprised of an actively controlled smart towfish, SAS imaging, bathymetry and gap-filler sonars, launch and recovery system, operator console, and visualization software. The towfish may be deployed from either Manned or Unmanned Surface Vessels (USV). The entire system is designed to be quickly installed and removed from vessels of opportunity.
A 180 cm AquaPix MINSAS sensor array is the heart of KATFISH™, which provides remarkably sharp 3 cm x 3 cm constant resolution across ranges of 220 meters per side. With tow speeds up to 8 kts and an integral SAS Gap Filler, KATFISH™ provides unprecedented high resolution Area Coverage Rates (ACR) of 3.9 km2 / Hr.
