The SIDE-ENHANCED is a low-cost, ultracompact, high-performance, multi-purpose side scan sonar module. It contains a logarithmic amplifier which combines high-sensitivity and high-dynamic range, a high performance processor with DSP, and MEMS inertial sensors. Its solid-state design within a light weight rigid polyurethane case makes it a durable and unpretentious operational device for industrial applications.

It’s easy to get started with a simple UART interface and open source examples. Its binary protocol provides for maximum performance and data integrity checking. Updating the firmware is simple, providing the most current features or even individualized solutions according to customer needs. Built-in non-volatile flash memory saves its settings even when not connected to power or a host.
