Pre-configured turnkey delivery

Multibeam solution ready to acuire bathymetric data to IHO s-44

The iHSS is a highly mobile, all-in-one solution designed to simplify the acquisition of hydrographic marine data to the new IHO S-44 Exclusive Order standards.

A powerful solution for hydrographic survey campaigns. It is 100% user-configurable, can be delivered in most cases within 24 – 48 hours and usually takes less than an hour to install and calibrate.

Complete Solution

Save time and money with a survey-ready solution for fast deployment on any vessel of opportunity or autonomous survey platform. The cutting-edge iHSS concept includes everything you need to acquire bathymetric data including your choice of technology-leading R2Sonic multibeam echo sounders and Integrated Navigation as well as Sound Velocity measurements from AML Oceanographics.

Easy configuration

The iHSS comes pre-configured based on your requirements and advice from Subsea Europe Services' own expert marine surveyors.

Fast deployment

Quick to install and calibrate, while moving the iHSS between survey vessels is easy as it has a single frame of reference, so no recalibration is needed.

Accurate data

The iHSS provides instant compliance to all IHO s44 orders, ensuring the data you acquire meets the needs of diverse commercial and scientific users

Simplify Marine Data Acquisition & Analysis

Multibeam Echo Sounder

We offer a range of R2Sonic multibeam systems with high levels pf quality, reliability and ease-of-use.

Inertial Navigation

Proven precision for vessel roll, pitch, heave, heading, position and velocity from the R2Sonic I2NS™ Type II.

Sound Velocity

The highest accuracy for beam steering comes from AML Oceanographic's Micro•X SV and Base•X₂ SVP.  


The BeamworX suite delivers fast, user friendly and robust processing of multibeam and single beam echo sounder data. 


The powerful iHSS workstation was designed in close cooperation with Hamburg University of Applied Sciences


Innovative multibeam transducer mounting bracket and over-the-side pole mount provide ease of use and flexibility.

Fast & flexible deployment

The iHSS Over The Side (OTS) Pole Mount features an all-in-one design with Multibeam, IMU and GPS antennas in one reference frame, which simplifies installation and reduces potential errors from inconsistent or incorrect offsets.
