June 2006 OIC Background DATA INPUTOIC SOFTWAREOUTPUT Navigation Sidescan Sub-Bottom Bathymetry Magnetometry Media Printers Final Maps “Data goes in, pictures come out.” Hydrographic Data Acquisition
June 2006 OIC Background Supported Sensors (Partial list) Sidescans: AMS / SeaMARC, Benthos, Datasonics, EdgeTech, Edo, EG&G, Imagenex, Klein, RDI, SeaBeam, SeaScan, Ultra Electronics Multibeam: Atlas, Elac, Odom, Reson, SeaBeam, Simrad Optical: Laser Linescan, Electronic Still Cameras, LIDAR Geo physical D ata A cquisition S ystem. Good data made easy, right out of the box. Acquisition: GeoDAS-PC GeoDAS GUI showing real-time mosaicking over NOAA BSB chart. Selected New Features Survey Management Package supports design, editing and execution of survey run lines. Survey planning module includes free charts of the world, and bathymetric and world- vector shoreline databases. Chart Support feature allows loading of raster and vector nautical charts in GeoDAS. SmartSonar TM : Automated tuning of sensor and display. Real-time Mosaics: Create real-time, co-registered, user- adjustable mosaics of up to four layers of sidescan, backscatter, bathymetry, magnetometry or seabed type. Client-Server Mode allows GeoDAS to broadcast records over a network or serial connection in real-time to a remotely located GeoDAS Client terminal.
June 2006 OIC Background Selected New Features Real-time processing includes full heave, pitch, roll & refraction corrections Simultaneous support of beam- amplitude, backscatter & snippets Simultaneous multi-beam and sidescan logging, display and processing. Serial, ethernet and analog inputs. Configurable navigation, attitude and environmental inputs (Tide and SVEL) Full motion and attitude compensation, with real-time latency correction. Real-time robust filtering, outlier rejection. Supports profiles, contours, 3-D and digital terrain models. Built-in "Patch-Test" calibration. Interfaces to the OICCleanSweep for advanced post-processing. Logs raw data to disc and tape drives in OIC and other formats. GeoDAS-MB is tailor-made for multibeam acquisition. Acquisition: GeoDAS-MB
June 2006 OIC Background New low-cost data acquisition and display. Ideal for single-beam, mag, EM & serial sidescan systems. Also supports seabed class. All the features, half the cost. Acquisition: GeoDAS-LT Selected New Features Real-time processing includes full heave, pitch, roll & refraction corrections Survey Management and Nav Tracks Real-time mosaicking of depth, Mag, seabed type Target marking, analysis, mensuration Mission products (contour maps, target maps, etc.) New! Seabed Classification tool! Can also serve as a remote GeoDAS client.
June 2006 OIC Background Post-processing: GeoDAS-Desktop Desktop playback/processing for OIC and other data types (SDF, XTF, MSTL, JSF, S81, etc.) Data Replay/Editing Replay/Re-processing OIC and other sidescan and multibeam data, with optional format conversion, navigation editing, and image enhancement Includes: GeoDAS for data replay OIC_NAP for Navigation & Attitude Processing Mission Products for Chart productions
June 2006 OIC Background UNIX-based post-acquisition processing for sidescan data and swath bathymetry. Post-processing: OICswath Batch-interactive processing for large-area sidescan & multibeam sonar data processing jobs (cable-route / pipeline surveys, etc.)
June 2006 OIC Background Reads OIC, XTF, QMIPS, MSTL, SDF, CMAX, S81, Hypack & other files Supports interactive processing of both sidescan and bathymetry Handles both interferometric and multibeam bathymetry data Produces geo-coded output ready for charting/GIS Next-generation sidescan/bathymetry post-processing. Point & Click Data selection Post-processing: OICCleanSweep Interactive Bottom- Tracking
June 2006 OIC Background Real-time 3-D visualization tool. Displays your vehicle over your data in real-time. Analysis: ROVer’s Eye Pre-flight 3-D path planning allows you to follow an onscreen visual flight track with known survey coverage. Sidescan overlays of the seabed can be added to provide an enhanced image of the ocean floor structure. User-definable, steerable views include: Virtual (vehicle independent), Egocentric (relative to vehicle), or Wingman (offset the vehicle). Sidescan and forward-looking imagery and bathymetry are processed and displayed on-screen providing real-time 3-D virtual illumination of the seabed beneath and forward of the vehicle/sonar.
June 2006 OIC Background Automatic pipeline tracking and free-span detection software. Analysis/Visualization: OICpipetrack Automatic span detection, classification and reporting Saves “snippets” plus.xls reports for each span
June 2006 OIC Background Image Analysis/Classification tool. Analysis/Visualization: OICclass Reads OIC, XTF, QMIPS, MSTL, SDF, CMAX, S81, Hypack & other files Point and click Projects interface allows easy loading and selection of just the data you want to process, from high-res coverage maps. Navigation and Attitude Wizards guide nav cleaning, offsets application, and recalculation of sensor position using true fix data, with automatic latency corrections. Sidescan processing utilities include ground- range correction, beam-pattern and artifact filters, and advanced contrast enhancements. Bathymetry processing provides full attitude, tide and refraction corrections without any “ad-hoc” downsampling. All data retained to the final grid. Interactive mosaicking - swaths can be merged or removed from the final mosaic. Supports full-resolution target marking from raw data, with marks saved as GeoTIFFs.
June 2006 OIC Background OIC’s new GeoClass interface. N-dimensional trainable pattern-recognition software Raw data co-plots (E1/E2) Data after eigenvector rotation, now orthogonal… Analysis/Visualization: GeoCLASS
