In the middle of February, ADUS (www.adus-uk.com),using the Dive Centre’s vessel Sound Diver, undertook further trials of a new prototype sonar in association with its manufacturer, Reson. The sonar represents the very latest generation of high resolution multibeam systems and has produced the most detailed images of the wrecks lying in and around the Sound of Mull ever seen. Of particular interest was the exceptionally high resolution data acquired of the wreck of the Breda. This wreck is so commonly dived and yet it is still amazing to see exactly how she looks on the seabed in this much detail.
All the images of the wrecks acquired and processed by ADUS (Breda, Rondo, Thesis, Shuna, Hispania, Buitenzorg, Evelyn Rose, and Swan (Duart Point)) will eventually be available onboard Sound Diver for dive briefings and to purchase via the ADUS WreckSight series of interactive 3D software (www.wrecksight.com )
