Press Release Details
MIND Technology Obtains MA-X™ Technology Patent
MA-X provides imaging of the nadir zone, or "gap", with the same interpretive characteristics of side scan sonar thereby improving survey times by up to 40%. The Company believes that the superior image quality combined with an increase in efficiency provides an unmatched value proposition to the industry and creates a clear differentiation from other side scan sonar systems.
Klein's first product incorporating this technology is the MA-X VIEW 600. This system delivers focused 600kHz imagery (which is comparable to 900kHz resolution) with 100% bottom coverage. The superior image quality and long-range performance, combined with the nadir gap filler, increases survey efficiency for complex survey operations, such as renewable energy products and unexploded ordinance. These sonars have been used for USV mine countermeasure operations.
The MA-X VIEW 600 is designed to provide portability, submergence, and optimal stability at all depths to a maximum of 300 meters. This system incorporates Klein BLUE TECHNOLOGY™ representing innovations in transducer, signal conditioning and processing design.
