See your Humminbird® Side Imaging® data at its full resolution! Now you can afford full Humminbird® target acquisition and mapping functionality with SAR HAWK™.
Humminbird® revolutionized Marine Search and Rescue (SAR) operations by introducing an easy-to-use, low cost side imaging sonar. While geared towards the angler, SAR professionals and public safety divers soon adopted this economical system as an effective tool for locating drowning victims.
Until now, SAR operators were restricted to visualizing data on the Humminbird® screen, contending with glare and low resolution, or they were utilizing clunky software not designed for target acquisition, leading to inefficient post-mission analysis and report generation. The solution, target acquisition software costing in the neighborhood of ten thousand dollars and up, is not a realistic option for most organizations. It is a credit to SAR operators that they managed as many successful search and recovery operations as they did. Unfortunately, for every successful recovery there are missions which do not locate the intended target. Cluttered bottoms or gaps in coverage are all too common problems which can lead to failure.
