Driver for RS-232 Serial Data from a Kongsberg (SIMRAD) Mesotech Model 971,990,1000 Sonar can be used to decode the profile scans from the high frequency sector scanning sonar.
There is no quality field included in the data.
For the model 990 and 1000 two transducer heads can be decoded, for the 971 only one.
For the MS1000 optionally the timetag in the message can be decoded and used as the ping time.
Note that for the MS1000 also a network driver exists that will also decode sidescan data.
