Side Scan

Specialized experience in side-scan sonar, sub-bottom profiling and magnetometry

Arc Surveying and Mapping and Sonographics, Inc have worked together on hundreds of projects over the past twenty years. Together, Arc and Sonographics have located unexploded Ordinance (UXO) for the US Navy at New York and around the perimeter of Vieques, Puerto Rico. We have performed combination multibeam and side-scan surveys at hurricane damaged ports and offshore fueling islands in the Bahamas, most recently for Statoil at Grand Bahama Island. Arc has performed combined multibeam bathymetry, side-scan surveys, magnetometer surveys and sub-bottom surveys at many bridges for FDOT, most notably at the Sisters Creek Bridge, Jacksonville, Florida where the river bottom was strewn with cables, pipes, utilities and debris. During demolition and reconstruction of the new Sisters Creek Bridge, the Florida Department of Transportation and the construction contractor knew exactly what would be encountered below water.
