Echoscope4G® XL

Echoscope4G® XL


Echoscope4G® is the world’s highest definition real-time 3D imaging sonar.


The Echoscope4G® forms part of our fourth generation of sonars. Our fourth-generation sonars are of a smaller and lighter form factor and require less power than our previous generation of sonars. Our fourth-generation sonars support standard 100mb ethernet capability, increased ping rate to 20Hz, and reduced range resolution to 2cm.

Our latest Echoscope® PIPE sonars are in the same form factor as the Echoscope4G series of sonars.

The Echoscope4G offers two different models with three different depth ratings with a wide range of flexible applications:

  • Dual Frequency (375/630kHz) Real-Time 3D imaging & mapping system
  • XD Triple-Frequency (240/375/630kHz) Real-Time 3D imaging & mapping system. A full range of compact and portable system options with the choice of multi-frequency and XD (Extra Dimension Mapping) as well as depth ratings, the Echoscope family can be rapidly deployed on vessels using an over-the-side pole mount or alternatively integrated onto a number of different ROVs (Remotely Operated Underwater Vehicles) or AUVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles).

The Echoscope4G is the world’s highest resolution real-time 3D/4D sonar. Built around unique patented technology, it generates a complete 3D model, composed of over 16,000 soundings, from each and every acoustic transmission. This 3D model is entirely refreshed up to 20 times per second with each new transmission.

The combination of Echoscope used in conjunction with our our top-end software packages with their unique and patented capabilities is changing the mode of many subsea operations around the globe.

With sounding densities far in excess of those generated by other sonars, and with the new increased 20Hz ping rate, the Echoscope4G presents unrivalled clarity of dynamic operations and moving objects in video-like data format in all water conditions including low or zero visibility water conditions. All the Echoscope4G range take advantage of patented statistical rendering techniques to further enhance the clarity of the image, presenting the user with an intuitive and easy-to-interpret image.

When monitoring underwater activity, even when the target and the Echoscope are moving independently of each other, the 3D imagery remains clear and accurate, giving the viewer an instant three-dimensional understanding of the underwater environment.

In mapping and inspection tasks, the ping geometry of the Echoscope4G will allow a target to be visualized many times in a single pass, allowing a target to be viewed from many different angles. This allows complex subsea structures to be mapped with fewer shadows and a level of confidence and detail far beyond anything that can be achieved using alternative methods.

Whether deployed on inland waterway work or large-scale offshore projects, the Echoscope4G real-time 3D sonar will provide clear, high definition imagery of the underwater environment.
