RV Bat Galim 2016 System Review

From January 31st to February 4th, 2016 a Shipboard Acceptance Testing (SAT) was conducted on the R/V Bat Galim, owned by the Ministry of National Infrastructures, Energy and Water Resource of Israel and operated by Israel Oceanographic and Limnological Research, on the newly installed Kongsberg Maritime (KM) EM302 (30 kHz) and EM2040 (200 kHz, 300 kHz, and 400 kHz) multibeam echosounders. These systems were thoroughly reviewed for system geometry, calibration, configuration, and performance during this acceptance period. Documented in this report are:

RV Bat Galim 2016 Acoustic Test Report

During the at-sea test on BAT GALIM, the main objective was to determine ship acoustic characteristics and to assess potential impacts to sonar performance from all acoustic sources. The primary sonars of interest were the newly installed Kongsberg EM 302 and EM 2040 multibeam systems. The following evaluations were accomplished as part this testing:
  1. The overall noise levels of BAT GALIM were measured and characterized with special test sensors and internal noise routines inherent in the Kongsberg sonars.
  2. Propeller cavitation characteristics were assessed.
