HYPACK Involved in Nautical Archaeology Program

As part of academic initiative to promote and encourage training and education, HYPACK, Inc. was involved in the Remote Sensing Survey Workshop 2014 which is part of Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University.

Jose Luis Casaban examines a side-scan sonar image during an exercise to become more familiar with how side-scan data imaged different objects underwater.

Several graduate students from the Nautical Archaeology Program, and undergraduate students from Texas A&M Galveston attended the seminar and were able to gain experience in HYPACK for their study.

After learning vessel safety and boat operations the undergraduates were able to focus on learning HYPACK®. Each student was able to successfully learn how to configure HYPACK® with a single frequency side-scan sonar, a magnetometer, and a Trimble GPS system. They were also able to easily learn how to plan and run the survey.

Karl Krussel and Jose Luis Casaban discuss the use of Hypack in the field with J.B. Pelletier aboard TAMUG’s R/V Earl Milan.

After the equipment was connected and everything was running properly, the students began collecting data on an unidentified wreck off of Pelican Island. They collected this data with both the side-scan sonar, and Magnetometer.

Once it was all collected, the students were able to interpret and organize the data and results that were collected.

Since HYPACK, Inc. provided the use of 20 software licenses for the course which allowed all the students to practice what they learned and better their workshop study.
