An upward-looking sonar device, mounted on the ocean floor to accurately measure ice draft.

When you need to:

  • Estimate ice forces for design of offshore platforms and operational planning
  • Determine the extreme thickness of ice for pipeline installations
  • Examine in detail the underside of sea-ice
  • Understand the dynamics and thermodynamics of the sea ice regime for scientific research.

You can count on the Ice Profiler™, for reliable accurate
measurements of ice keel drafts.
