A Software Perspective

The Effect of Hydrography on Unmanned Systems
The field of hydrography is poised to make some substantial contributions to the unmanned systems community. The mantra of ‘making a map is easy, but doing hydrography is hard positions hydrographic practitioners favourably into the world of unmanned systems. Moreover, these technologies, once limited to defence and academia, are currently undergoing an expansion into the commercial realm. Not only has this increased the facility of using unmanned systems, it has also spawned innovative uses of these technologies and has blurred the lines between the traditional surveying community to the benefit of all. By Vitad “V” Pradith, HYPACK, USA. As the healthy... (read more)
