MBES
Multibeam Echo Sounder System

The Multibeam Echo Sounder System or MBES uses a sonar that produces an angular swath of beams to the port and starboard side in a single ping to effectively map a corridor with a width approximately 3-4 times the water depth. MBES consists of three instruments namely Teledyne Reson SeaBat 7160, Teledyne Reson SeaBat 7111, and Kongsberg EM 710. The OMG bathymetry survey was primarily conducted using multi-swath Multibeam Echo Sounder System (MBES) equipment and procedures.
