In the years since it was first introduced, we’ve been continuously working to make improvements in all aspects of its technology. Now, in keeping with our long, undisputed record of providing the best high-resolution imaging in the industr y, we’re proud to introduce the new L-3 Klein 5000 V2.

KEY FEATURES • Long-range Reconnaissance Mode up to 250 meters

The 5000 V2 simult aneously generates five adjacent, parallel sonar beams on each side of a towfish or AUV while employing advanced beam steering and dynamic focusing techniques. This produces extremely sharp alongtrack resolution at high tow speed, with 100% bottom coverage.

• High speed with 100% bottom coverage

No single-beam side scan sonar system can match this p e r fo r m a n c e !

• Port and harbor security

• Highest resolution, multi-beam technology of any commercial side scan sonar • Rugged stainless steel construction — built like a tank…not like a toy • 300 meter depth rating (500m optional)

APPLICATIONS: • Surface Mine Counter Measures (SMCM) and Q-route surveys

• Hydrographic surveys • Geophysical surveys • Pipeline and offshore survey

technique is a significant reduction to the system noise level resulting in much better image quality. The 5000 V2 overlaps sonar beams and displays only integral, non-overlapped beams. Regardless of the number of beams displayed, all new data can be stored on the PC hard drive for future processing, as desired. An optional high accuracy, low-cost Attitude Reference sensor is available for the 5000 V2 that provides pitch, roll and yaw rates, which when coupled with Klein’s SonarPro Visualization software, image stabilization is
