CTI to Launch New SonarWiz at Ocean Business

Chesapeake Technology, Inc., (CTI) is launching new SonarWiz at the Ocean Business show in April.

As the company explains, the new SonarWiz has a modern look, visible enhancements to all modules (sidescan, sub-bottom, bathymetry, and magnetometry), more integrated plan-view and 3D visualizations, and for the first time introduces bathymetry amplitude processing.

Backscatter post-processing is now available for bathymetric data including beam averaged and time-series (snippets) amplitude records.

Also, SonarWiz has expanded its grid creation and editing tooling. The system has strong support for interferometers, AUVs and other swath systems that are used in challenging environments.

John Gann, VP Software Development commented, “I’m extremely excited about this release. I’m sure I say this about all of our software releases, but this one is a biggie! The backscatter processing for bathymetric data is an excellent new development and took real teamwork to get out the door. Teamwork, that is from inside and outside Chesapeake, so thank you to all of our beta testing customers and sonar manufacturer partners.”

Chesapeake continues to be one of the top choices for processing sidescan imagery, generating mosaics, as well as detecting and reporting features of interest. The new SonarWiz is a leap ahead with its enhanced support for interferometric bathymetry and AUV-based data management, processing, and rendering,” said Straud Armstrong of L-3 Communications Klein Associates, Inc.

Ocean Business attendees can see the new SonarWiz at booth S5 and experience SonarWiz in action on Klein and EdgeTech water demos, at the L-3 Klein booth “L3”, or the EdgeTech booth “B9”.

Chesapeake Tech is also offering a one-day training workshop April 17th on-location after the show.
