FV Caroline 1 Installation of SIMRAD SX95 OMNI Directional sonar

ATL have recently supplied a SIMRAD SX95 OMNI Directional Sonar to the Purse Seiner FV Caroline 1.

Graham Barker headed up the installation team, travelling to Pohnpei in Micronesia and working with the vessels shore based engineering team and crew. A smooth and successful installation was achieved. The latest version of the SX95 introduces new software running now on Windows 10, and a new Joystick controller that gives seamless control of the cursor and menu settings. Many new features are introduced to the SX90 series sonar with the latest software that makes for a powerful long range tuna sonar, with excellent target resolution and fish detection.

The same vessel will also have a new model SY50 OMNI sonar installed later in the year when released to the market. This will operate on 57 kHz and be used in tandem with the SX95 for closer range tracking of tuna.
