Teledyne CARIS will deliver a full software solution to the South African Navy Hydrographic Office. 

The solution, provided through Teledyne CARIS’ official distributor Unique Group, includes software that will be implemented as part of a larger project to be executed by Southern African Shipyards (SAS) where a new hydrographic survey vessel is being built. 

Three additional survey motor boats are also slated for manufacture, all of which will be equipped with HIPS and SIPS to process acquired hydrographic data. During the project, the shore based South African Navy Hydrographic Office will be refurbished and Bathy DataBASE (BDB) and Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) will be  implemented to manage hydrographic data and produce nautical products like paper charts, ENCs and other digital products.

The implementation phase is set to commence shortly, and will begin with the installation of the software and a number of training sessions.
