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.

Triton Imaging, Inc. announced that ATLAS Elektronik has selected the Triton AUV-SuiteTM software for use with their SeaOtter MkII autonomous underwater vehicle demonstrator. The MkII is an advanced version of the SeaOtter Maridan AUV designed for military applications such as mine detection and countermeasures, covert intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and rapid environmental assessment.

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.
