HYPACK Inc. has developed the HYSWEEP Water Column logger to collect and log the enormous amounts of water column data provided by multibeam sonars.
The water column logger allows users to ensure that hard targets such as wrecks are fully detected and to confirm the least depth in the water when fine features such as wires or masts may be missed otherwise. Hypack said the data is also useful for evaluating underwater gas seeps and remotely monitoring undersea oil spills.
The display provides constant upgrades so surveyors can monitor data quality start and stop logging on demand and target features and anomalies. Network traffic and data logging is closely monitored to alarm users of problems that may occur when working with large data transfer. The data is also written to support third-party software data processing support.
