International Dredging Review

HYPACK has released the new HYPACK® Sub-bottom Profiling Software designed for the acquisition and processing of sub-bottom profile (SBP) data for use in marine geophysical engi­neering and geotechnical site surveys dredging and mining applications.

The program allows for real time view of sensor data displayed either unipolar or bi-polar with band-pass filtering and TVG. It can process large datasets supporting SEG-Y and JSF data formats and digitizes layers picks tar­gets and exports to ASCII files.

To configure the software users must de­fine the project geodesy configure the survey hardware import background charts plan the survey lines and then start the survey program. Hypack Sub-bottom supports both analog and digital SBP systems from leading manufacturers.

The system can be hull-mounted towed or placed on unmanned vehicles retaining accu­rate positioning.
