New Hammerhead Towed Profiling System

New Hammerhead Towed Profiling System

Ocean Scientific International Ltd. are pleased to announce the latest addition to their product range, the Hammerhead coastal towed profiling system.


The Hammerhead is designed for rapid surveys from small boats in estuaries, lakes, rivers, and inshore coastal areas and can easily be deployed by one person. The system allows users to obtain a vastly expanded spatial dataset quickly and efficiently, thereby maximising the vessel time.  The Hammerhead allows users to collect data from a single depth or perform an undulating profile between 2 set depths.


The simple body frame design is able to accommodate the mounting of a wide variety of third party instruments, including side scan sonar, SV units, CTDs and multiparameter sensors. Data from the on-board instruments can be either included in the real-time output displayed on the Hammerhead touchscreen topside control box, or can be read separately into an independent software.
