Product Name:UUV-3500
Product Description:For over 40 years, Klein Marine Systems has “set the bar” for commercial side scan sonar performance. The newly developed UUV-3500 product line leverages a powerful, wholly FPGA-implemented, multi-channel processing engine.
Year of introduction:2010
System Description 
System type:Integrated
Mode of operation:Simultaneous dual frequency
Location of digitation:
Transceiver and recorder 
Model name:UUV-3500 Side Scan/Bathymetry Sonar System for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs)

Data processing and imaging capabilities:The UUV-3500 leverages a powerful, wholly FPGA-implemented multi-channel processing engine which simultaneously optimizes two different and concurrent output data streams for: photo-quality side scan imagery and high-accuracy, co-registered swath bathymetry. Post survey analysis of the data can be accomplished using Kleins SonarPro software. We also offer a SDK which allows UUV manufacturers and third party software developers the ability to control the sonar directly, as well as display data using our proprietary image display engine.
Standard system interfacing capabilities:The UUV-3500 system electronics will easily integrate into all manportable UUV platforms currently on the market and is also available in a watertight pressure case configuration.
Generation of firing trigger:External triggering of active acoustic devices
Model identification:UUV-3500
