ADUS surveys wrecks of the Sound

In the past week ADUS (www.adus-uk.com) has undertaken sonar surveys of the wrecks in the Sound of Mull using the very latest generation of high resolution multibeam sonar manufactured by Reson. The survey also utilized a new submersible IMU (Intertial Measurement Unit) as part of the Applanix position and orientation system mounted on ADUS’ ISHAPS deployment system over the transom of the Dive Centre’s boat Sound Diver.

The surveys have produced the most detailed images of the wrecks lying in the Sound of Mull ever seen and they will be available onboard Sound Diver for dive briefings and to purchase via the ADUS WreckSight series of interactive 3D software. The wrecks of the Rondo, Thesis, Shuna, Hispania, Buitenzorg, Evelyn Rose, and Swan (Duart Point) were surveyed along with some test targets laid out in Ardtornish Bay for research purposes.

The images of the wrecks will appear here and at www.wrecksight.com as soon as post processing is complete – so watch this space & see for the first time what the wrecks in the Sound actually look like !
