The multibeam systems and attendant sensors on R/V Sikuliaq were successfully evaluated. The installation and integration of the systems is compliant with current best-practices and there are no major deficiencies that should hinder anticipated missions. Installation parameters and configurations of the systems have been verified and all patch-tests have been completed and loaded to the systems. As configured at the end of the SAT cruise and as detailed in this report, the systems are ready for generalized mapping activities including bathymetry, seafloor backscatter, and water-column work.
