Oculus M1200d

Offering the highest resolution in the M series range, the M1200 may be used for specialised inspection tasks where image quality is critical.


The Oculus M-series multibeam sonars are a new generation of imaging sonar, designed for use across a wide variety of underwater applications. Their small form factor and weight of less than 400g in water makes them ideally suited for deployment onto micro sized platforms, while their rugged construction also makes them an excellent choice for larger work-class vehicles and subsea infrastructure.

Offering the highest resolution in the M-series range, the Oculus M1200d operates at both 1.2MHz and 2.0MHz (with a 130° and 80° field of view respectivley) making it ideal for specialised inspection tasks where image quality is critical.

Please note that Oculus specifications are still preliminary subject to ongoing field-trials and testing. Please contact us for further details or with your specific requirements.
