Product Description

SonarMite Hydrographic Echo Sounder
The SonarMite is the world's first survey grade echo sounder to be truly portable and to use Bluetooth technology to communicate directly with the Leica 'Viva' controller. The single beam echo sounder fits on to the surveyors’ detail pole and acts as a rod extension providing an easy to use method to survey rivers, lakes and estuaries using existing kit and software. The instrument is currently being used extensively in the UK for river surveys in conjunction with Leica robotic total stations and bespoke 4Site software from AiC.

Portable Bluetooth Echo Sounder
The SonarMite Echo Sounder was the result of nearly two years research and development to further extend the boundaries of shallow water hydrographic surveying equipment. The introduction by Ohmex of the SonarMite, the worlds first truly portable echo sounder system, has been a hard act to follow and it remains the portable instrument of choice in many survey companies around the world. The release of the SonarMite MTX/BTX instrument marks the next stage introducing a series of equipment designed around the WinSTRUMENT concept using the latest portable computers integrated with new measurement technologies.
Throughout the Hydrographic world the term ‘Black Box’ has become a euphemism for a device that has a minimal user interface and normally requires connection to a PC to be of any use ! In most cases these boxes are a cut down version of a more conventional instrument without all the features of the full system. The SonarMite extends this idea of a rugged design and minimalist interface to produce a ‘Blue Box’ system where the user interface is provided by integrated software running on a portable computer connected via a Bluetooth link. The use of wireless technology enables the instrument to be waterproof and used in a hostile environment while the more sensitive computer features can be located in a more user friendly environment up to 50m away from the instrument.
The SonarMite MTX/BTX instrument uses the same ‘Smart’ integrated transducer technology used in previous systems, in addition to highly reliable bottom tracking algorithms using DSP techniques the system also outputs a quality value associated with every depth measurement made. The popular SonarW7 software has been updated to the latest Windows versions. Software for the ‘front end’ of the SonarMite is available to run on a wide range of devices from Pocket PCs through to the full range of desktop systems running the Windows operating system.
