SHSI's primary survey vessel, the 28-foot Sea Hunter, is equipped with a Geometrics 882 marine-towed cesium magnetometer and can record all side scan and bathymetric data with a single pass.
SHSI conducts all post-processing of collected data, which is reformatted and entered into an assortment of GIS software platforms and digital working charts. This allows for clear and concise analysis of the survey data, enabling the SHSI team to focus in on specific targets or target areas.
