The Storm Pioneer / Ice layer detection

The Storm Pioneer

Some remote areas and countries in the world have the custom of fishing on the ice in winter, however due to the bad environment and uncertainty of freezing degree of the ice, there may be risks of falling into the water caused by ice breaking and hidden dangers in the traditional way of judging by experience, which can not accurately analyze the icing situation of the ice. In order to eliminate the danger of artificial ice detection, the product uses sonar equipment for safe and reliable analysis, as well as feasible route planning. To substitute for the purpose of artificial exploration on ice surface, solve the risk caused by ice freezing.
