The seaCHIRP™ offers deployment possibilities. Thanks to its modularity, the system has already been deployed using a wide variety of vessels, from a 4.7 m inflatable boat to 40 m survey boat.
Each survey vessel is different, with varying onboard equipment. Depending on these characteristics, the seaCHIRP™ configuration can be modified to fit the launching and recovery vessel requirements.
A crane or an a-frame is generally used to launch and recover the seaCHIRP™ but it is also possible, for the smallest ships, to mobilise the seaCHIRP™ onshore, dropping the system from a quay, a pontoon or a slipway and then towing it to the survey site
Tailor-made installations, for example directly beneath the vessel hull or pole - mounted are also possible if required. The seaCHIRP™ can be coupled with other equipment types, to meet the requirements of surveys that needs several data sets such as UXO surveys.
2D and 3D versions of the seaCHIRP system have already been successfully utilised alongside a variety of different surveying systems, including Side Scan Sonars, Magnetometers and Multi-Beam Echo-sounders.
