Side-scan sonar systems use sonar technology to provide the user with a visual image of items located on the bottom of a body of water. Responders use these systems to conduct underwater searches.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Side-Scan Sonar Systems are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
