StarFish 450H is an affordable, high-performance hull-mounted side scan sonar that produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, slim-line sonar design, combined with a flexible mounting bracket, helps ensure correct positioning and high quality imagery on any vessel.

Utilizing advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish 450H can view targets at longer ranges without any loss in image quality. It competes with many larger commercial systems, yet the intuitive software makes it very easy to use.

The StarFish 450 Series is designed to be 'Plug and Play', connecting to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection. Simple, one-time installation to the boat's PC allows the user to capture real-time digital images of the seabed quickly and easily. Since the 450H sonar is fixed to the boat, it's accessible all the time, allowing the user to monitor the seabed for interesting targets during any journey. With hull-mounted systems, there is no need to worry about snagging a towing cable when surveying in shallow water or high traffic areas.

Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.
