Profiling sonars are devices used in underwater profiling where quantitative measurements are required. A profiling sonar transmits a very narrow, conical beam that generates one point per ping, providing very high resolution. Reflected signals, or echoes, are recorded and analyzed in order to develop an image of scanned area that includes information on the range between the sonar and the scanned object
