Acoustic Camera™ from SONASEARCH

The Acoustic Camera™ program is an example of SONASEARCH’s efforts to bring advanced imaging capabilities to the oil patch. With the Acoustic Camera, SONASEARCH creates ultra-high resolution acoustic imaging with ‘See in the Dark‘ capability providing video camera quality imaging in turbid fluids. The examples below indicate the excellent resolution available with this SONASEARCH technology. The pictures on a green background are common house aluminum house numbers (note the fluted surface features). The grey scale output of the Acoustic Camera faithfully images the test targets - flutes and all. Three-dimensional (3D) imaging of the Acoustic Camera output is straightforward (sepia images).
