Creation of Backscatter Working Group

Geohab is putting together a Working Group on Backscatter Data Acquisition and Processing. This was one of the main recommentations of the workshop on 'Multibeam Backscatter – State of Technology, Tools and Techniques' which was held on 5 May 2013 in Rome, Italy. During this workshop, the need for standardisation of the acquisition and processing backscatter caused by multibeam echo sounders was expressed. The purpose of the Working Group is to discuss and propose a series of best practices or standards for acquisition and processing of multibeam sonar backscatter data, and to prepare a set of guidelines. Recommendations will also... (read more)

Finnmark Platform 3D Multi-client Project Started

Dolphin Geophysical, in partnership with Searcher Seismic, is executing the 1,407 sq km non-exclusive 3D MC seismic project on the Finnmark Platform, Barents Sea, Norway. Processing has commenced in Dolphin's UK Centre using its proprietary OpenCPS software. The processing sequence has been designed to enhance the imaging of the primary Jurassic targets located at around 1sec TWT. The processing will also focus on providing improved definition of the deeper Triassic and Permian Clastics. A full suite of deliverables will be produced during the processing. With planned infrastructure in Veidnes outside Honningsvåg in Finnmark announced by Statoil, the survey area is... (read more)

Real-time Sonar Signal Processor for Australia

Sea acceptance testing of Kraken Sonar Systems' embedded real-time synthetic aperture sonar (RTSAS) signal processor for Australia’s Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) was a success. In real-time signal processing, the analysed (input) and generated (output) samples can be processed continuously. Kraken’s RTSAS is a rugged, small-form-factor subsystem that incorporates an NVIDIA Kepler GPU. This kind of graphics processing capability is increasingly being applied in the aerospace and defence industry for complex digital signal processing. The RTSAS architecture has been designed from the ground up for maximum imaging performance and optimal performance per watt. In essence, the GPU acts as... (read more)

Live Demonstration of CARIS Onboard

During the Shallow Survey 2015 conference held in Plymouth, UK, Teledyne and CARIS showcased the latest capabilities in autonomous survey operations with a live demonstration. For this demonstration a Z-boat with MB1 multibeam sonar and CARIS Onboard was given a survey line plan and deployed in the Mississippi River at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA. The raster files were viewed at the CARIS stand at Shallow Survey in Plymouth, some 4,500 miles away. CARIS Onboard is a near-real-time processing software program that automates the processing workflow for bathymetry and imagery data. Especially suited to remote operations utilising autonomous or unmanned platforms, CARIS Onboard... (read more)
