General Acoustics new Sub-Bottom Profiler used
for Cable Tracking
in the Port of Hamburg
German company General Acoustics GmbH received a demanding survey
order for their new DSLP Sub-Bottom Profiler from the Hamburg Port
Authority. Aim of the survey was to find the exact location of
cables embedded in an inhomogeneous bottom and interspersed with
stones. About 25 profiles were carried out to detect the cables.
They were clearly detected with General Acoustics new Sub-Bottom
Profiler based of its approved DSLP-Technology at depths varying
between 1-4 m in sand. The figure shows and example of the cables
and objects found.
