1 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © GENERAL ACOUSTICS GmbH, Germany Phone: 0049 431 5 80 81 80 DSLP ® - Service Approved Innovation for Highly Precise Detection of Sediment Layers, Embedded Objects and Sediment Transport Processes

2 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © DSLP ® Services and tailor made solutions

3 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © DSLP ® - Service with 12 x 3,7 KHz transducer Subsoil Exloration Baltic Sea, penetration 90 meters

4 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © DSLP-Services: tailor made solutions Technology highly accurate detection of water depths, sediment layers, subsoils and objects on the basis of sound Innovation/ Unique selling proposition high sensitive detection of layers and targets via detection of inner structure changes without the need of impedance/density strong gradients acoustical classification and tracking of layers high detection probability of embedded objects Applications hydrographic surveying and subsoil exploration at rivers, lakes, harbours, reservoirs, offshore exploration of resources (e. g. sand) offshore subsoil exploration, pipeline/cable tracking, object finding tailor made solutions References Expert reports confirm lastingly the technical superiority 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005 won comparison test against 5 competitors (2004) References: E.ON Energy Group, Hamburg Port Authority, Ruhrverband-River Basin Management (GER), MODs

5 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © DSLP ® Services – Applications Subsoil Investigation : Sediment Transport : Object Detection: Hydrographic Surveying : - Survey of sediment layers and soils (geological units) - Allocation of subsoil parameters - Generation of a geological model - Determination of erosion/sedimentation areas - Near bottom survey of erosion and sedimentation processes - Highly precise bathymety - Detection of surface sediments - Detection of scour (local change of depth) - Detection of even embedded objects (foundlings, rockfields, pipelines, cables, bombs, etc.) - cable and pipeline tracking and thickness of overlying sediment

6 GENERAL ACOUSTICS © DSLP ® Services by its Specifications: Penetration in Sediment: Up to 100 m (depending on water depth and material) Frequencies: 3,5 kHz – 200 kHz (typical 3°; side lope dumping 40 dB) Resolution: < 1 mm Ping rate: up to 10 Hz Accuracy: < 3 cm (independent from environment‘s conditions) Gain: TGV / AutoGain Inputs: DGPS (RTK), PPS, HRP, Soundvelocity probes Outputs: digital multi purpose data as input for all common GIS, coordinate trafo for local systems Water Depth: 1,5 m – 500 m (deeper on request) Power: up to 5 KW
