One of the reasons we use R2Sonic sonars for asset inspection is because of its TruePix sidescan output. This excellent article explains why/how it is different to Snippets backscatter. Snippets vs TruePix™, how do they compare? – R2Sonic:
Now that I am the Chief Strategy Officer for XOCEAN I thought I would get back to blogging about any high resolution seabed mapping related news. So my first post should be about the amazing XO-450 USVs. We are currently up to X09 and should be to X12 by early next year. The only USV […]
Pearl Habour wrecks surveyed with multibeam, LiDAR and underwater photogrammetry. Coolest thing is making models of wreck artefacts by using 3D printers. The small USV is also pretty impressive – complete with R2Sonic 2020.
Interesting article on the Kongsberg website about Yaw Compensation in shallow water. Click to access Kongsberg-EM-Technical-Note-The-advantages-of-yaw-stabilization.pdf
MCA have just released the Richard Montgomery Survey report from the 2011 survey that MMT-NetSurvey conducted. It’s also been in the news recently about whether it will stop the building of a new London airport. I hope it will because Heathrow is much easier to get to for me.
Mike Brissette at MosaicHydro has put together some interesting notes on lessons learnt. MosaicHydro – Pro-Notes: “”
This is the link to the RESON USer Conference program on the Monday before Oceanology next week. Interesting presentations, especially Dan Parsons’ presentation as that is all about sediment movement – nothing to do with depths, which makes it quite refreshing. Reson – Program: “” (Via .)
This sonar is meant to be USD 50,000 – could be interesting if it works well. Odom Hydrographic Systems – Products – Multibeam Echo Sounders – MB1: “” (Via .)
Here is my paper from Shallow Survey 2012. I took the Shallow Survey dataset from RESON, R2Sonic and Kongsberg and put them through the QPS Fledermaus FMGT app to see if you could a) build a nice mosaic and b) have nice acoustic response curves from which to determine sediment type. As you will see, […]
