The Scout Mk II is delivered with transducers customized for each AUV, in frequencies from 300-1800 kHz, in either single or simultaneous dual frequency, that guarantee a high quality, efficient mounting interface and a depth rating to match any AUV’s performance requirements. We cover the spectrum.

“The Scout Mk II leverages the compact design of the Scout Lite sonar and offers a modular, versatile, and affordable sonar which, with its small size, is easy to integrate into any AUV”, said Sergio Diehl, President of ATLAS North America.
