Triton Expands Industry-Standard XTF Format - 10/05/2006


Triton Imaging, Inc., a leader of seafloor search and survey software products, released enhancements to its industry-standard eXtended Triton Format (XTF) specification. The new Version 18 of the XTF specification adds two new sonar manufacturer-specific datagrams to the standard format. The first expands XTF to satisfy the special requirements of some single-beam echosounders as well as the newer technology of multi-transducer echosounders. The second improvement modernizes XTF to accommodate the latest generation of side scan sonars that use a weighting factor to improve dynamic range and increase image quality.
