FLS for Survey
FarSounder’s Argos forward-looking sonars (FLS) have been integrated into the Qinsy survey software package. Argos sonar users are now able to display their FLS bathymetric data in the Qinsy platform along with other survey data. Quality Positioning Services B.V.
Ivanoff-inspired LiquidOptics is a new feature for SubC’s smart cameras with water correction and a sapphire construction for durability and impact resistance. UltraOptics provides an ultrawide field of view. SubC Imaging.
The REVOLUTION NAV package provides the ability to monitor an ROV’s trail as it moves through the water on a Google Map while allowing waypoints to be set and data to be tracked over time. It also offers autonomous capabilities such as station-holding in current and altitude-holding, and will eventually pave the way to a hybrid autonomous vehicle with waypoint navigation capabilities. Deep Trekker Inc.
SonarWiz 7.6.5 is now available, featuring: faster loading of side scan projects; improved color palette displays and options; new SEG-Y option to compute depth from fathometer and altitude; values to shaded relief sliders and other user interface enhancements; and improvements for handling Klein MAX-600 and Norbit WH sensors.
