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...

In-mission Processor Allows Real-time Processing of HISAS Data

Hydroid, Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime and a leading manufacturer of marine robotic systems, has just announced it has integrated an in-mission processor on a REMUS 600 Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) with the KONGSBERG High-Resolution Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Sonar (HISAS) 2040 for a customer. By integrating the in-mission processing, the high-resolution images from the HISAS module can be quickly downloaded when the vehicle returns from its mission. Gap-filled Image HISAS 2040 provides up to 2cm by 2cm resolution across a 300-metre swath. When combined with the onboard EM2040, it provides a complete, gap-filled image. Synthetic aperture sonar uses algorithms... (read more)

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)

HIPS and SIPS 11.0 Simplifies Bathymetric Processing Workflow

Teledyne CARIS has released HIPS and SIPS 11.0, the latest hydrographic data processing solution. This release introduces several improvements making it easier for users to start new projects and process data, as well as an enhanced user experience while interacting with survey data. For users looking for the simplest way to open and process their data, HIPS and SIPS now supports Drag and Drop for raw sensor files. When users Drag and Drop files onto the application, the raw data is automatically processed and georeferenced, and a gridded surface is created. Georeference Bathymetry Version 11.0 also offers one-step processing. The... (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)

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)
