Using a Humminbird Side Scan Sonar not to the bottom but to ahead of the ROV


Hello everybody, November 13st, 2016

I’d like to install the transducer not to have a look to the bottom as a “normal” configuration but to have a look ahead of the ROV.
In fact install the transducer verticaly as a Gopro camera.

It should be nice to go back or to or get a target ; mainly when the water is turbid and when the visibility is less than two meters.

The best could be to use a waterproof Fisher connector with the “normal two wires” plus the wires comming from the Huminbird transducer.

So, is anybody has still done that ?

Thank you

Hervé Blanchet
