We are always keen to add the latest equipment to our rental pool and Teledyne Odom has shown us that it has really thought about the customer’s needs when designing the MB1.”

The MB1 offers:
• a 170–220-kHz operating frequency
• 120° degree swath coverage
• up to 512 beams
• phase and amplitude bottom detection
