ARIS Explorer 3000

The Next Generation In Clarity

With 128 distinct physical beams operating at 3 MHz, the ARIS Explorer 3000 can provide higher resolution than any other imaging sonar in its class with unprecedented image clarity even in dark or turbid waters.

For longer range applications, Sound Metrics offers the Explorer 1800 and Explorer 1200 models. All models offer dual frequencies, dynamic focusing, multiple recording and output options, background subtraction and innovative software.
