Shipwrecks from Estonia: Here are a series of System 5000 sonar images obtained by the Estonian Navy near Tallinn Estonia - Polaris/Raa - The sailing vessel was built in 1917 in Koivisto, Finland. She was 32 meters long, 9 meters wide and the waterline was at 3,6 meters. She was originally named Polaris until the year 1938, when she was sold to Estonia and renamed Raa. She sunk in 1941.

Channel Buoy: The above System 5000 image shows a Channel Buoy. This was imaged at a speed of 6.0 knots and at a 50 and 75 meter Range Scale. In the next frame (click on the right side of the above image), looking closely, you can identify the mooring block, the buoy chain going to the surface, the surface wake of the buoy in the current.

Shipwreck Coal Schooner: This is an image of the remains of an old schooner that sank near the Isles of Shoals (Duck Island) off the New Hampshire coast. The image shows the keel and a small part of the hull on either side of the keel. The remains measure 45 meters in length, 13 meters in width and approximately 1 meter in height off the sea bottom. This image was acquired on a sonar range of 100 meters and a towing speed of 7.6 knots.

Airplane Twin Engine Cessna: The following images were imaged by the NOAA ship RUDE . The images are of a Cessna twin engine airplane. The airplane is nose down in the mud with the tail section up off the bottom. The plane is located off of Port Jefferson New York. Special Thanks to the Crew of the NOAA Ship RUDE.

Images obtained with the Klein System 3000 Sub Bottom Profiler

Profile 1 Gas pocket: Delay 20 Meters - Display 50 Meters - Profile shows silt, some layering with in the silt, bedrock, and a gas pocket.

Profile 3 Bedrock: Delay 10 Meters -Display 50 Meters - Profile shows silt, some layering with hard contacts with in the silt, and bedrock rising a little above the silt. Above the profile is a 100 kHz 150 Meter range side scan image. aquired at the same time. This run was made in rough sea conditions.
