Slide Echo Sounder
Multi Beam



For Rapid Bathymetric Surveying in Protected Waters

Introducing the all-new entry-level high-resolution curved-array bathymetric mapping system from NORBIT. This all-in-one tightly integrated broadband multibeam turnkey solution offers high resolution bathymetry over a wide swath.

The high-end sonar with globally leading GNSS/Inertial Navigation System (Applanix SurfMaster) embedded into the unit ensures fast and reliable mobilization and highest quality sounding for most conditions. The iWBMSe is an ideal choice for protected waterway bathymetric surveys; it may be mobilized on any vessel of opportunity and offers streamlined operability and good performance to match budget and project requirements. Additionally, the kit provides industry’s highest resolution multibeam side-scan and snippets for wide swath shallow water applications. The WBMS sonars are based on a state of the art analog and digital platform featuring powerful signal processing capabilities, offering roll stabilized bathymetry and several imagery and backscatter output. With broad R&D expertise NORBIT has developed, from the ground-up, exciting new technology that allows existing and new applications to benefit from the advantages offered by a compact wideband curved-array multibeam sonar.
