The Practical Solution to Velocity, Position, and Depth Measurement

SonTek HydroSurveyorTM - The practical solution to velocity, position and depth measurement with exclusive 5-beam depth sounding technology.  

Product Features
  • Full water column velocity mapping
  • Sound speed integration and interpolation (with SonTek CastAway-CTD)
  • Speed over ground (Acoustic Bottom Tracking)
  • 5-beam depth soundings (50° swath)
  • Water column velocity (currents) mapping

The SonTek HydroSurveyorTM is a system designed to collect bathymetric, water column velocity profile, and acoustic bottom tracking data as part of a hydrographic survey. The two key components of the system are the SonTek HydroSurveyor Acoustic Doppler Profiler (ADP®) platform, and the powerful, yet user-friendly, data collection software.

Flexible and Fast

Water sound speed corrections are interpolated in both
space and time with the fully integrated SonTek CastAway-CTD, delivering agility and accuracy to your surveys.

All Inclusive

Full water column velocity mapping, exclusive 5-beam depth
sounding and acoustic bottom tracking (for speed over ground when GPS is lost) provide comprehensive data for a complete solution within a single package.

Software Centric

With built-in automatic data gridding and interpolation, even intricate surveys will not require specialized complex software, saving you time and money.
