DOS has been contracted by CALADAN OCEANIC to supply and integrate the first Full-Ocean-Depth (FOD) side scan sonar.
After a successful campaign of hyperbaric tests conducted under DNV supervision, this unique 11000m rated side scan sonar will be installed on FOD submersible DSV Limiting Factor. DOS will also supply software suite and specific trainings to Caladan Oceanic ‘Sub Team’ to handle onboard acquisition and surface post-processing.
Deep Ocean Search’s FOD side scan sonar is a custom dual-frequency system. It will be operated for wreck search and science expeditions.
The DSV Limiting Factor is the world’s first and only manned-submersible commercially certified for dives to 11,000 m / 36,000 ft.
