ODIM Brooke Ocean of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, has completed a cooperative effort to improve the integration between the ODIM MVP (Moving Vessel Profiler) and HYPACK's "HYSWEEP" module for multibeam data collection and processing.
The interface enables observed ODIM MVP real-time sound speed profiles to be collected by the HYPACK survey software in AML CALC format. In addition, the ODIM MVP Controller software will be able to collect time and position from HYPACK and integrate this with collected sound speed data. The enhanced integration of the ODIM MVP is part of the HYPACK2009a release and will become a standard feature in future HYSWEEP releases.
Mr. Mark Smith, Manager of ODIM's After Sales & Service, says: "While customers have always been able to transfer MVP sound speed profiles into HYPACK, this interface facilitates a more seamless and transparent process that will enable HYPACK / ODIM MVP users to have a more cost-effective operation."
