The Bathy 2010 system provides high performance bathymetric and sub-bottom survey capability from shallow inland waterways to full ocean depth. The system configuration is extremely flexible and can be easily modified to accommodate the specific needs of individual customers.

The Bathy 2010 a Windows XP compatible Chirp Sub-Bottom Profiler capable of fully automatic as well as manual operation. The BATHY 2010 is designed for ease of operation and provides a hardcopy interface via a parallel port to gray-shade thermal recorders. The system is capable of real time display of sounding information as well as simultaneous depth digitizing, hardcopy and digital storage. An Ethernet interface (CAT5 /100 Megabit) is available to store or back-up stored SEG-Y Processed or raw data to the vessels network or it can store the data to its internal hard drive. The data back-up can also be transferred to the Bathy 2010s internal CD/DVD RW Drive for data archiving. It also has eight serial communication links for navigation/ position data, ships data, data-logging output, etc. It provides a completely integrated electronic environment with all other survey electronic equipment, and is packaged within a ruggedized 19-inch rack mount enclosure.

The Bathy 2010 system is configured as a flexible acoustic measurement sensor device capable of both shallow/deep water hydrographic and sub-bottom profiling applications. Each of these applications depend on certain characteristics in order to perform accurately and reliably. For hydrographic applications, the BATHY-2010 is capable of providing sophisticated algorithms for peak signal detection, automatic modes of: receiver gain, bottom tracking, pulse length and power level controls greatly reduce the probability of inaccurate bottom detection/tracking. For sub-bottom profiling applications the BATHY-2010 is capable of providing high energy/wide bandwidth transmit waveforms and an advanced bottom triggered TVG processing algorithm to facilitate both maximum bottom penetration along with high resolution layer definition.
