OSIL improve MiniBAT system with new touchscreen top box
Oceanographic systems engineering company OSIL (Ocean Scientific International Ltd) have added a new touchscreen topside control box to their existing MiniBAT system.
The MiniBAT is a lightweight and flexible profiling system that is remotely operated from a topside control box and can be towed through the water column at fixed depths (or heights above the seabed), or set in an undulating pattern to obtain data readings throughout the water column. The upgraded topbox design provides an improved user interface.
The MiniBAT system has been designed for use with a wide variety of data collection instruments including side scan sonar, SV units, CTDs and multiparameter sondes, holding smaller units within the towbody itself, while larger payloads can be secured under the body of the unit in a specially designed protective cage.
