Faster Multibeam Data Handling

CARIS has released a 64-bit version of its hydrographic processing software HIPS and SIPS. This new version HIPS and SIPS 7.1 will provide users who have access to a 64-bit computer the ability to handle large multibeam sonar datasets even faster.   In-house tests revealed that the CUBE surface creation and Merge processes are now 15-30% faster respectively. The 64-bit technology also allows access to larger banks of RAM, increasing the ability to multi-task while processing. HIPS and SIPS supports over 40 sonar and Lidar formats, allowing it to process data from virtually any system configuration. The software also includes... (read more)

NetSurvey Multibeam Advances

NetSurvey have recently completed two contrasting projects which they claim advance multibeam technology. The first project was for Pacific Engineering Company (PECO) in Russia and involved supplying personnel, software and multibeam hardware for an Ice Scour survey prior to pipelay operations. The survey, using Reson’s 8125 highest resolution multi-beam echosounder, identified sand wave fields whose height was only 3cms and easily determined the 20-30 cm deep ice scours. A total of nearly 1.8 Billion soundings were collected over the 31 days of survey, which works out at an average of 660 soundings per second. This data was handled by a... (read more)

New Multibeam System

Atlas Fansweep Coastal, the first of a new series of advanced Atlas Fansweep 30 multi-beam echosounders designed to exceed IHO standards over depths in excess of 600m, has been introduced by Atlas Hydrographic. Developed for both hydrographic survey and oceanographic research applications covering waterways and coastal regions extending to continental shelf boundaries, the system features enhanced levels of data quality to reduce general post-processing requirements. Operating between 100 and 200kHz, with broadband frequency coverage depending on water depth and conditions, it additionally features simultaneous multi-ping technology for concurrent transmission of multiple steered pings in a water column. This ensures significant... (read more)

Klaipeda Seaport Takes ELAC Multibeam

ELAC Nautik has recently delivered and successfully integrated a complete hydrographic solution, S/V VARUNA, to Klaipeda State Seaport Authority (KSSA). KSSA now operates two shallow water systems SEA BEAM 1185. The system is designed for both high-accuracy harbour and near shore surveys and offers the newest Coastal Oceanographics software solution with high precision Aquarius DGPS/ RTK positioning system and MAHRS motion sensor/ gyrocompass. A Valeport CTD guarantees reliable water profiles. (read more)

Spanish Navy Extends Multibeam Capabilities

Kongsberg Maritime has entered into a contract with the Spanish Hydrographic Institute of the Navy (IHM) to deliver and install the EM 302 1ºx2º on its survey launch, H/V Malaspina. The system will be installed during the mid life upgrade program starting in 2007 and will form a key part of an integrated survey package consisting of the EM 302, EA 600 12 kHz and Seapath 200. Today, IHM operates two 12.5 metres hydrographic launches, Malaspina and Tofiño. Both utilise Kongsberg Maritime hydrographic equipment. The launches have surveyed the majority of Spanish harbours. The level of detail facilitates to define... (read more)

Multibeam System for PD Teesport

Saderet has supplied a complete MB2 multibeam system to PD Teesport for high accuracy port surveying. The system was installed on one of Teesport’s hydrographic survey vessels, the Tees Sentinel. Included in the package was a Hemisphere AtlasLink L-Band RTK positioning system, USM sonar mount, Applanix Wavemaster INS, and Teledyne Reson SVP70 for sound velocity measurement at the sonar head. A Valeport SWIFT SVP was also provided for sound velocity measurement over the whole water column. This contract follows on from another recent MB2 package project provided by Saderet for a Suffolk, UK based inshore hydrographic survey company. Saderet is... (read more)

Multibeam and Imaging Sonar Demonstrations

Teledyne Odom Hydrographic and Teledyne BlueView will be performing demonstrations onboard the survey vessel Meon Surveyor during all three days of Ocean Business 2013 in Southampton, UK. Teledyne Odom will be demonstrating its new Dual Head MB1 Multibeam with integrated Hemisphere Heading RTK Positioning module, and Teledyne TSS DMS-05 Motion Sensor. Each MB1 multibeam installed on the Meon Surveyor features 120° swath width, 170 - 220kHz user selectable frequency range, 24-bit resolution, 60Hz ping rate and up to 512 beams. This new fully integrated model enables users to install and calibrate the system in a fraction of the time of... (read more)

Two Multibeam Echosounders for China

The Shanghai Da Hua Surveying and Mapping Company have ordered two more ATLAS FANSWEEP 20 shallow water mapping systems for their hydrographic surveying tasks. Most of the work is carried out for their mother company, the Shanghai Dredging Company. In addition to a former system already in use since more than ten years, the customer decided to increase the capacity of his survey fleet with two 200kHz versions ATLAS FANSWEEP 20 multibeam echosounders.The identical configuration for both systems consists of ATLAS FANSWEEP 20-200, ATLAS HYDROMAP CONTROL software for sensor steering and control, HYPACK & HYSWEEP data acquisition software, IXSEA OCTANS...
