Data Analytics a 'NISE' Project for Undersea Warfare Center

tomorrow’s challenges through innovative work today.Dr. Jennifer Williams, a lead computer scientist at NUWC Keyport, is using NISE funding to study software obsolescence. Just as hardware needs to be upgraded to extend its service life, or else replaced when it is no longer useful, software applications face the same problem.“In hardware obsolescence there is a distinct delineation for when a hardware component is obsolete: the part is either being produced or it is not,” said Williams. “Unfortunately, software components do not behave the same way.”Williams said

radar scanners, including those from Kelvin Hughes, Simrad, Terma and Furuno, and provides a common software architecture that can be scaled to single or multi-sensor installations.The RadarWatch software accepts open data formats such as ASTERIX and NMEA-0183 and works with other Cambridge Pixel software applications, including SPx Fusion, SPx Camera Manager and SPx Radar Data Recorder. Augmented vision is also implemented within RadarWatch to fuse primary radar tracks with data from ship (AIS) and, where appropriate, aircraft (ADS-B and IFF) transponders and then display this as an overlay to camera video

inspection and monitoring tasks are completed safely and efficiently with the same real-time 3D data and multi-aspect imaging as enjoyed uniquely by Echoscope users, Coda Octopus said. Providing the same real-time volumetric 3D data as the Echoscope allows use of real-time and post-processing software applications (Underwater Survey Explorer and CMS).The initial focus for Echoscope AIR is to provide new benefits for a number of key marine construction applications including:Breakwater Construction: The Echoscope AIR can visualize the movement and track blocks above waterline for the first time.

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
