Klein Debuts MA-X Imaging Technology

. In addition, the MA-X imagery has the same interpretative characteristics as side scan images (grazing angle, shadows) and therefore, no operator re-training is needed.MA-X-based products will continue to output Klein's SDF data format and will be compatible with major third-party imaging software applications, including automatic target recognition software. The MA-X technology will be introduced in a variety of Klein products, including both towed systems and payloads for autonomous platforms

construction companies.Available from today, Sonardyne’s Fusion 2 Long BaseLine (LBL) and Inertial Navigation System (INS) software has been written from the ground up to offer a single solution aiming to make field development projects faster and easier. With Fusion 2, the separate software applications, vessel-fit hardware and often complex communication interfaces that have been typically required to support LBL, acoustically-aided INS and Sparse LBL operations, have been replaced with a single, unified solution that is easier and faster to set up and run.Live in-water preview events held

Meet the Future of Visualization and Mapping Sonars

our latest signal processing technology, which changes how the software processes data, making the system more intuitive and simpler than ever to operate, making it more of a ‘plug and play’ system.    The range of real-time 3D sonars is complemented by the different software applications. The standard USE software will operate with all of our sonar systems. USE offers additional features to enhance operations including the ability to insert geo-referenced models to enhance and visually augment the acoustic sonar data, the ability operate with and without GNSS position and

VisualSoft Selected for Cable-laying Vessel NKT Victoria

NKT Victoria vessel. He said, “The NKT Victoria was designed and outfitted to be the very best. The latest VisualSoft HD digital video system was therefore an obvious choice to add as part of this state of the art cable lay vessel.”   The VisualSoft suite is a modular range of software applications designed specifically for use during subsea structure and pipeline inspections.   The VisualDVR MCHD system will provide the project team with up to four channels of high definition video recording complete with built in dynamic overlay and the ability to distribute live video and

its full digital video transmission opens up an array of applications in the control room.   Similar to the Smart Phone technology, part of Imenco’s philosophy is to ensure an open architecture to allow third parties to fully integrate these cameras into control systems and to write software applications to increase the popularity and usefulness of the platform. This will allow users the freedom to tailor the package to suit specific demands, as well as integrating video analysis function algorithms, image enhancement etc. on top of the core software.   The system opens up for the

Seafloor Mapping Aids Safety & Efficiency

novel needs and innovation and works with industry to improve business practices. QPS, with an office in Fredericton, New Brunswick, is headquartered in Zeist, The Netherlands. An independent software design company, QPS is focused on system integration of survey sensors and the development of software applications used for hydrographic surveys, sea-floor mapping, portable pilot units and Electronic Navigation Charts (ENC) production. Brown said multi-beam echo sounder mapping technology is the focus of the collaborative research. “This project is focusing specifically on backscatter which is

Teledyne Gavia to Showcase New Products at Ocean Business

Teledyne Gavia will introduce its new Multibeam Profiler module at Ocean Business next week in Southampton.   The Multibeam Profiler module, built for the Gavia AUV by Teledyne BlueView, is derived from BlueView’s 2250 kHz MB-Series sonar. When used with off-the-shelf software applications, the BlueView system provides turnkey solutions for many commercial, military and scientific AUV applications, including 3D bottom mapping, high-resolution target rendering, and side scan gap-fill.   Teledyne BlueView is a manufacturer of integrated Multibeam Profiling sonar systems
