A recent equipment demonstration done by Simrad Spain detected a wreck which, according to early indications, could be the legendary vessel of the Battle of Trafalgar, the Santisima Trinidad.

Staff from Simrad Spain performed a demonstration of a side scan sonar from GeoAcoustics A Kongsberg Company onboard the hydrographic vessel Malaspina operated by the hydrograpic institute of the Spanish navy. They decided to do an in depth study in an area where a KONGSBERG's EM302 multibeam echo sounder, already installed on the vessel, had previously made some discoveries that called for attention. The target is in about one hundred meters depth, off the coast of Cadiz in Southern Spain. Already with the first high-resolution images obtained with the GeoAcoustics Dual Frequency side scan sonar, it was confirmed that this was a reasonably well-preserved ancient shipwreck.
Driven by the excitement of finding and collating historical data on the sinking of the Santísima Trinidad, the team registered and recorded numerous side scan records in order to supply data to the University of Cadiz. The latest reports suggest that this really is the famous vessel, but this still needs to be officially confirmed.
