2017 NOAA Ship Fairweather Launch SAT

Vessel: R/V Fairweather
Multibeam System: EM2040
Dates: May 22- May 26, 2017

We installed four Kongsberg EM2040 multibeam echo sounders, one on each of Fairweather’s hydrographic survey launches during the spring of 2017 in Newport, OR. We accomplished the test and qualification of these systems on Puget Sound from May 22 through May 26. Conditions were generally agreeable for testing with some wind driven chop potentially affecting a limited set of noise tests. All systems were successfully integrated and measured performance was in compliance with vendor specifications and suitable for conducting NOAA hydrographic surveys.
