Atlas Selects Triton AUV Software
The top image is the Sea Otter MKII autonomous underwater vehicle. The image on the bottom left shows a sidescan mosaic created with the Triton SS-Logger software displayed in the map-based GIS program, Triton Map. The inserts show 3D perspective view of color depth-coded bathy data and sidescan imagery draped over the same bathy data. These perspective views were created with the Triton 3DViz program. The center image shows sub-bottom seismic data being processed in Triton SB-Interpreter using the innovative Profile Folding™ feature. The seismic profile shown is along a user-defined path through intersecting survey track lines. This feature provides enhanced viewing and analysis of seismic reflectors and results in highly accurate reflector digitization in SB-Interpreter. The image on the right shows a sidescan mosaic, bathy DTM, and S-57 electronic chart being displayed correctly fused and geo-registered in the Triton Map program.
The Triton AUV-Suite, purchased through Triton Imaging’s agent in Germany, J. Bornhoeft Industriegeraete GmbH, will be used for post-mission analysis of the commercial sensor suite such as multibeam, sidescan, and in some configurations, sub-bottom profiler. The Triton AUV-Suite, which has been recommended by the U.S. COMINEWARCOM for use on “any shipboard U.S. UUV system,” includes a broad range of applications for the display, processing, and interpretation of sonar data collected from AUV platforms. This software provides a proven COTS solution into which advanced processing technologies such as CAD/CAC, SAS, and change detection are easily integrated.
