W.J. Castle, P.E. & Associates has acquired the JW Fishers Side Scan Sonar 100k/600K and is now able to view large search areas quickly and produce high resolution images of the river bottom up to 40 meters from the sonar head on a laptop or desktop PC. Engineers Rick Parisi and Greg McGrath of W.J. Castle, P.E. & Associates attended Fishers’ training on the Side Scan Sonar 100K/600K in Taunton, MA. Under the instruction of Brian Awalt, JW Fishers Technical Support, Rick and Greg were trained on side scan sonar operation on a Pontoon boat on the Taunton River, as well as JW Fishers Sonar View Software. Rick explained, “Seeing what the side scan sonar can do and the images it can produce of the river bottom is exciting. Castle now has even greater capabilities as a result of this technology.” Both Rick and Greg are now certified to operate and maintain the JW Fishers SSS-100K/600K.
