RD Instruments Announces NEMO Waves Processing Module

RD Instruments has begun delivery of the revolutionary new NEMO Waves Processing Modules to a variety of commercial and academic users around the globe. RDI’s new NEMO Waves Processing Module has been designed specifically for RDI’s Waves Array users to provide them with a real-time data solution. The self-contained NEMO unit is linked directly to the Workhorse ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) Waves Array, where it quickly processes both the real-time current profiling and waves data at the source. NEMO then outputs a highly condensed, report-ready data string suitable for transmission to the surface/shore via modem, radio telemetry, or direct... (read more)

Fugro Awarded Processing Facility AUV Survey

Fugro Survey Pty Ltd (Australia) is shortly due to commence a deepwater AUV survey as part of the Woodside-operated Browse LNG Development. Woodside has commissioned Fugro to undertake a detailed seabed mapping program, extending offshore from the proposed Central Processing Facility, that will provide high-quality data to assist with the engineering process for the proposed subsea pipelines and other infrastructure as part of this major project.   Following the success of a similar such project off NW Australia in 2010 Fugro will utilise its Australian-based survey vessel, the 75m Southern Supporter, and its regionally based Hugin 1000 AUV.  The Hugin...

RT Quick Report Facilitates Faster Acoustic Data Processing

The RT Quick Report post-processing software developed by RTsys produces a detailed report, which includes information on the sound exposure level (SEL), sound pressure level (SPL) and one-third octave bands as well as other descriptors using acoustic measurements. This is essential for experts who wish to develop their own cycles or identify areas of interest to focus on and carry out a more in-depth analysis. Analysing a recorded acoustic signal can take a long time and often requires the development of suitable algorithms. Easy to modify, the RT Quick Report software is available for free, upon request, with the RTsys... (read more)

Processing EM2040C Data Reveals Wreck Details

MV Yolla, Deakin University’s 10-metre research vessel based in Warrnambool, Australia, was recently equipped with a Kongsberg EM2040C. Using the new multibeam system, students collected data about the local shipwreck site of La Bella, a four-masted barquentine sailing ship used as a trading vessel which sank in 1905. Using the CUBE workflow for bathymetric processing, along with the water column imaging functionality available in HIPS and SIPS 8.0, students were able to produce some key findings. Students also took particular interest in backscatter processing to aid in habitat mapping as part of their research. The Marine and Freshwater Sciences research... (read more)

Meritaito to Use QPS Qimera for Data Processing

Meritaito (Finland) has adopted QPS Qimera for its bathymetry data processing requirements. Last year alone Meritaito surveyed 8,000 square kilometres of seabed and lakes, which required fast and accurate data turnaround times. Qimera’s architecture and workflow allows Meritaito to handle these massive datasets like never before. Recording data online using QINSy also contributes to a smooth process as real-time flagged data is preserved through to Qimera, thus keeping the surveyor's knowledge and input. Meritaito and QPS have worked closely to enhance features in Qimera which make it easier to deliver data to their clients, such as the Finnish Transport Agency. Duncan Mallace, head of... (read more)

SBG Systems Unveils Qinertia INS/GNSS Post-processing Software

SBG Systems has taken a major step in the surveying industry by unveiling Qinertia, its in-house post-processing software, at the Ocean Business show (UK). After the survey, this full-feature software gives access to offline RTK corrections, and can process inertial and GNSS raw data to further enhance accuracy and secure the survey. Whether the survey is made from a car, a UAV, a plane or a vessel, Qinertia Post-Processing Kinematic (PPK) software will secure and enhance the acquisition. Complete INS/GNSS Post-Processing Software After the mission, Qinertia gives access to offline RTK corrections from more than 7,000 base stations located in... (read more)

Demand for AUSPOS Processing System Continues after US Shutdown

During the US shutdown, around half of the more than 5,500 GPS datasets processed with the aid of Geoscience Australia’s AUSPOS global positioning system were from institutions and individuals based in the United States. Since that time, almost one third of the 3,200 processing requests have come from North America. AUSPOS is a service that allows users to submit logged GPS data to Geoscience Australia’s website where it is processed with respect to a global GPS tracking network providing coordinates with centimetre-level or better accuracy. AUSPOS is used extensively by the Australian geospatial, mining and construction industries to establish precise... (read more)

EIVA Introduces Deep Learning Features for Data Processing

In order to address deep learning and the possibilities this technology brings, EIVA established a dedicated software development team earlier this year. The team consists of engineers specialising in machine learning, machine vision and deep learning. One of the results of the team’s efforts is NaviSuite Deep Learning, which is a new product in addition to the other NaviSuite software products for maritime survey and construction operations. NaviSuite Deep Learning is able to perform two tasks: Classification: Identifying what is in a data set Segmentation: Marking where the identified objects are in the data set Deep learning technology makes it...

New Software Tool Automates Subsea Data Processing Workflow

Danish software engineering specialist EIVA has released a new tool, NaviSuite Workflow Manager, for automatic data processing of large amounts of subsea data, with minimum human involvement. With the Workflow Manager, repetitive tasks are automated and executed in parallel by the software. This means that data is processed faster, and crew members’ time is spent more efficiently on errors, interpretations and quality control. Faster than traditional processing The first performance measurements on real-life operations data and workflow setups have shown positive results, with 50 hours of data processed in less than 2 hours. According to EIVA, this is 25 times... (read more)

GeoTexture for Backscatter Data Processing Evaluation at AWI

Regarding co-registered, georeferenced backscatter data, the German Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) has recently been evaluating the Kongsberg Geoacoustics GeoTexture software suite for backscatter data processing, mosaic creation and seabed classification. The software performance has been optimised for the analysis of GeoSwath Plus backscatter data, as it allows for beam pattern correction, vessel motion and sea-bottom topography, which substantially improve the quality of the mosaics and simplify image analysis and interpretation. Back in 2012, AWI began assessing the pace of coastal erosion and the nature of sediment and organic matter transfer in nearshore areas... (read more)
