The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) selected HYPACK® and HYSWEEP® software for five of its fishery survey vessels. The vessels, outfitted with the Simrad ME70 scientific multibeam system onboard, are used by NOAA’s for fishery and habitat mapping.

The latest version of Hysweep includes an interface for the ME70, for the data collection and real-time visualization of the sonar. In addition, the new Real Time Cloud provides the operator with detailed views of the seafloor during the transect. The company said this program provides easier feature detection and categorization, system calibration and verification, and data quality control. Data processing is done through the Hysweep MBMAX64 software. It can be done on-board shortly after data collection.
