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)

Norwegian Navy Selects Triton Imaging Software to Process HUGIN 1000 Data

Triton Imaging, Inc. announced that the Royal Norwegian Navy (RNoN) has purchased its Fusion-Office software to perform post-mission processing of multi-beam and side-scan data from the HUGIN 1000 autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). Triton's software is in operation on-board the Oksoy Class mine warfare vessel, KNM Karmoy. The Karmoy is currently performing EOD missions in the Baltic Sea as part of NATO's immediate reaction force MCMFORNORTH. Triton will develop the HUGIN Mine Reconnaissance System (MRS), on the Oksoy minehunters. The system includes the HUGIN 1000 AUV, developed by the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) and Kongsberg Maritime, coupled with the Triton... (read more)

CUBE Terrain Modelling

Developed by Brian Calder of University New Hampshire, CUBE is a combined terrain modelling, data cleaning and data reduction software for use as a processing tool for high density multi-beam echo sounder data sets. CUBE will estimate the depth at predefined grid node points, making use of all available soundings in the vicinity of the node. The output of the process is a set of depth values at grid node locations, rather than ‘approved soundings’, and performs a radical reduction of the amount of data needed to represent a seabed surface which has been surveyed by a high resolution instrument...

Seismic Imaging Software Upgrade

Spectrum Geo has expanded its in-house seismic imaging solutions with an agreement to purchase licences of the Paradigm Echos processing package. Pre-stack multiple attenuation tools inherent in the Echos solution licenced by Spectrum include 3D surface related multiple attenuation (SRMA) and apex shifted Radon. The software licence purchase also includes anisotropic reverse time migration (RTM) to further expand Spectrum's imaging solution available through Paradigm GeoDepth.   Spectrum is already committed to Paradigm's GeoDepth model building and imaging platform. The purchase of the Echos package will standardise the Spectrum DP solution for onboard processing, pre-processing land/marine 2D/3D and data conditioning for... (read more)

Practical Survey Workshop Held in Uruguay

CARIS and Kongsberg recently teamed up to conduct a five-day joint acquisition and processing workshop with Servicio de Oceanografia, Hidrografia y Meteorologia de la Armada (SOHMA) in Montevideo, Uruguay. 35 attendees from hydrographic organisations and survey companies from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador and Panama participated in the workshop which included theoretical and practical sessions, site operations and hands-on exercises. The workshop consisted of presentations from Kongsberg on the EM 2040 multibeam and the SIS acquisition software. This was followed by vessel mobilisation and hands-on data collection on board SOHMA's survey vessel Trieste. Following the data collection, the... (read more)

QPS to Improve Integration with Kongsberg

QPS and Kongsberg Maritime have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enhance and deliver QPS software products, in particular the Qimera multibeam data processing package, to Kongsberg Maritime’s existing and future clients. QPS’ software products have been developed to be the easiest, yet most powerful multibeam software products available. These complement the advanced sonar systems that Kongsberg Maritime produces, as they are used from research to Navies to businesses. Kongsberg’ SIS QA sensor processing tools are seamlessly integrated inside the QPS Qimera bathymetry processing software product. Qimera’s patch test tool allows the Kongsberg Maritime EM 2040 Dual TX system... (read more)

Underwater Noise Recorders

The RS-ORCA and RS-HILO underwater noise recorders have been launched by RS Aqua. These multi-channel underwater acoustic data acquisition and processing instruments are RS Aqua products, developed in collaboration with highly experienced marine acoustic engineers in Nova Scotia, Canada, and are fully supported by RS Aqua’s renowned technical support hub in the UK. The RS-ORCA can be used to record the richest underwater datasets possible, with multi-mode capabilities across all five acoustic channels. This enables, for example, simultaneous recording of raw data, ambient noise thresholds and marine mammal detections, in real time. The RS-ORCA can also integrate third-party instruments such...
