Kongsberg Mesotech has lunched a new maritime security system – the M3 Marsec Shallow-Water Maritime Security Sonar – which is designed for customers who require a rapid deployment turn-key system.
The M3 MARSEC has multiple applications including berth clearance, hull inspection, structure inspection, unexploded ordinance (UEXO)/IED detection, body and evidence recovery as well as diver detection and supervision.
The system is designed for rapid installation, operation and removal using vessels of opportunity.
The M3 MultiMode Multibeam Sonar is at the core of M3 Marsec’s functionality and is said to be the only instrument in its price point that produces high-quality imaging records and 3D profiling data using the same sonar head.
The M3 Marsec is a complete plug-and-play system that is supplied in rugged, re-usable equipment cases.
It includes all required sensors for deployment and can be set up by two people in under one hour using the Quick Start Guide; experienced users can set up and deploy the system in 15 minutes.
