Coverage of the system

With the beams at 25 degrees on each side, we can achieve a coverage of almost 1 times water depth

  Coverage = 2 x tan(25) x water depth

In 10 meters of water, the system will give the user an effective swath of 9.6 meters. Compared to a traditional single beam system using a 3 degree transducer, and giving a footprint size of 0.5m.
