The RiverSurveyor®, S5/M9 systems give a new perspective to the notion of measuring open channel hydraulics. Using SonTek’s exclusive SmartPulseHD™, multiple acoustic frequencies are fused with precise bandwidth control for the most robust and continuous shallow-to-deep discharge measurements ever. A deterministic microcontroller expertly apportions the proper acoustics, pulse scheme, and cell size to get the highest definition possible so you can focus on the measurement, not the instrument setup. The system even has a vertical beam for precise channel definition and it's all designed to work intuitively.RiverSurveyor Brochure (1MB) [PDF]

Simple. Sleek. Superior.
Useful options and accessories make the RiverSurveyor a complete, turn-key solution.
Supports both the S5 and M9. Features optional rechargeable battery packs, is factory-configured with 2.4 GHz telemetry, and has optional Differential GPS, or RTK GPS.
The flexible design of the S5 and M9 systems enables use either over the side of a boat, or on a small floating/tetherable platform such as the SonTek Hydroboard or Trimaran. Watch video.
SonTek RTK GPS
Easy to use and an incredibly precise, fully integrated absolute position solution that can augment or be an alternative to bottom tracking with moving bottom.
RiverSurveyor runs on both PC and mobile phone platforms making system operation simple without any risk of losing data.
