R2 Sonic (Our Vision is Sound)
Why R2sonic?

Why R2Sonic

For us, the cleaner the survey data that comes in, the easier it is to process. With the R2Sonic MBES, we can do a progress survey and have it back to the client on the dredge in about an hour. Noise in survey data can leave gaps. With clean data, however, you know you don't have to go back and fill them in. - Neil Hewitt, Managing Director at Precision Hydrographic Survey (PHS)

The attribute that made the difference was mainly the user-friendly aspect. We are not specialized hydrographers, and once the multibeam is properly interfaced with the ship, the R2Sonic is the most easy to use for non-skilled people. - Denis Degez, DRASSM
