The BATHYCASE – 200JS is a highly-transportable hydrographic survey system designed specifically for installation in autonomous vehicles or Jet Skis or other in small manned vehicles in applications where operation in very shallow water is required. BATHYCASE – 200JS is a simple-to-operate, full survey- grade depth sounder that digitizes the echo to 16-bit resolution and stores the full digital record and provides playback with high resolution and detail.
BATHYCASE JS200 (Bathymetric Survey System) is very simple to operate. The BathyCase includes features that make this system ideal for jet ski operation. Bluetooth keyboard/mouse interface work with SDI’s proprietary “Shallow Depth” mode for bottom tracking in very shallow water applications. Post process your data in HYPACK or DEPTHPIC. SDI’s Depthpic provides XYZ data in ASCII text format. Depthpic is compatible with HYPACK, SURFER, AutoCAD, and GIS programs. Save navigation data and all other collection parameters with all depth soundings. As a result, the Bathycase is a great solution for contouring and TIN mapping.
In addition to a full survey-grade 200 kHz depth sounder, it digitizes sonic echos to 16-bit resolution. Store the full digital record and provide playback with high resolution detail. The Bathycase digitizes 65,536 shades of gray and the depth resolution is consistent through the depth range. Positions, events, and operator annotations can exchange between HYPACK and SDIDEPTH programs. DEPTHPIC and SDIDEPTH software provides convenient full echo replay and post-processing of hydrographic data.
BATHYCASE operates from 12vdc. And with navigation software, the MRU 333, internal or external GPS, external splash-proof display, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, a battery and a jet ski, you are ready to survey! SDI’s hardened computers include internal shock-mounted electronics contained in a splash proof, non-corrosive, impact-resistant case with stainless steel hardware. The BATHYCASE is a field-ready solution for recording and processing bathymetric data in shallow water. This bathymetric survey system, with the MRU -333, can even handle the fast turns and rapid motion of a Jet Ski. See SDI’s Bathycase HERE
