Submersible Autonomous EchosounderAutonomous Submersible Echosounder


Learn the Basics

The BioSonics DT-X SUB Echosounder System is a completely self-contained echosounder solution for autonomous deployments where cabling to the surface may be cost-prohibitive or impractical. DT-X scientific echosounder technology is packaged in a pressure rated housing that is adaptable for deployment via AUV, ROV, or seafloor observatory platform.

The DT-X SUB is programmed at the surface for the desired sampling interval and ping rate. The DT-X SUB has programmable duty cycling for extended battery life, is ideal for long term studies, and will operate any of BioSonics standard transducers.

Let us help you configure a DT-X SUB system to match your study objectives. We are happy to answer any questions and look forward to assisting you. Contact us today for details.

How It Works

The DT-X SUB provides the same functionality and data collection capabilities as a mobile DT-X system and more. The DT-X SUB will operate up to four transducers of the same or different frequency and standard housings are rated to 1100m with deepwater options available. Connect your computer to the DT-X SUB at the surface via Ethernet to program all data collection parameters. Wake-sleep mode functionality allows for extended power budgets and diel sampling over days, weeks, or even months to evaluate temporal patterns in biomass and or behavior.

DT-X SUB

Users may deploy the DT-X SUB using a tripod mount for up looking water column sampling or from an unmanned or deep-towed vehicle with an up looking transducer to assess surface oriented biomass. The unit is later retrieved, connected to a computer to download and process data using any of BioSonics processing tools or Echoview software.
