Scan the environment underwater

With a Ping360 scanning sonar mounted on a Blueye X3 ROV, you'll get a top-down view of the ROV's surrounding. See echoes from objects such as ropes, walls, dock pilings, rocks, boats, fish, and any other structures or objects that reflect sound waves. With that, you have reference points to navigate from, regardless of water visibility, and you can locate important features in the water quickly.

Use-cases with the Ping 360 sonar:

  • Scan the underwater environment

  • Navigation in low-visibility water conditions

  • Inspections

  • Obstacle avoidance

  • Target location and tracking
