Coastal Oceanographics will introduce an acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP) module for their HYPACK software at Oceanology International Americas. The module will run with the RD Instruments Workhorse™ ADCP to provide real time current information. The user will then be able to combine the ADCP measurement information with cross sectional depth profiles to calculate flow rates and to output color coded section diagrams.
Coastal Oceanographics develops Windows-based software for the hydrographic industry. HYPACK MAX is the latest release of its hydrographic package and is used throughout the world for survey design data collection graphical editing plotting volume computations surface modeling and contouring. The HYSWEEP package allows users to control and process multibeam and multiple transducer systems.

Coastal also markets the NAVPACK package for PC-based electronic chart navigation and DREDGEPACK for dredge monitoring.
