Tritech International Limited [Tritech], a Moog Inc. company, is a high-technology business dedicated to providing the most reliable imaging and ancillary equipment for use in underwater applications. Tritech operates in many professional underwater markets, including; Defence, Energy, Engineering, Survey and Underwater Vehicles.


Product Summary

Tritech remains an industry leader in the provision of sensors and tools for ROV and AUV markets, a reputation achieved from over 25 years of delivering expertise through key products such as the Super SeaKing mechanically scanning sonar (shown below), the industry-standard for obstacle avoidance and the renowned Gemini 720i sonar, for real-time multibeam imaging with a fast update rate.

The StarFish range has gained worldwide recognition as the most compact, affordable, towed side scan sonars for the professional underwater survey industry.

The full-body, three-fin, hydrodynamic design of the StarFish systems challenge the common cylindrical or torpedo-shape of traditional side scan sonars. The unique shape of the StarFish systems dramatically improves the stability of the sonar and consequently the quality of the images it produces. Furthermore, the advanced digital CHIRP (Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse) acoustic techniques used by StarFish systems offer better range resolution compared to conventional, fixed-frequency side scan sonars.

Building on the success of the original StarFish 450F, the StarFish 990F is the ultimate high-resolution  side scan sonar for extreme image definition and target detection. The sonar uses a high frequency 1MHz CHIRP transmission with extremely narrow horizontal acoustic beam to provide the sharpest, most defined images. With 35m range capability on each channel (70m total swathe coverage), the sonar is ideal for high-resolution survey in ports & harbours, inland waterways such as rivers and canals and excels when used for SAR (Search And Recovery/Rescue) operations. The sonar also has an inline connector to allow the cable to be swapped or replaced on site. Existing owners of StarFish 450F & 450H systems can upgrade to the StarFish 990F, should they desire higher definition sonar imagery.


The Tritech Super ZipJet ROV Dredge Pump replaces the successful Tritech ZipJet Ultra range of suction & jetting systems. The Super ZipJet pump incorporates many technical advances over the previous generation of ROV suction and jetting systems. These advances are a direct result of customer feedback. Considerable emphasis has been placed on increasing the pumps efficiency in both the suction and jetting modes. The Super ZipJet pump incorporates several design features which improve its reliability and substantially reduce its maintenance costs. The Super ZipJet pump will not block or jam because there are no moving parts on the dredging side of the system. Power is derived from a stream of high velocity fluid creating a low pressure region behind the suction nozzle. The pump may be rapidly switched from suction to jetting mode.
