Impact Subsea has released seaView Hydro Survey to provide an easy to use and cost effective hydrographic survey solution.
The Hydro Survey application operates with the Impact Subsea ISA500 – using the unit as a single beam echo-sounder. Each range reading is synchronised with a GPS input, allowing data to be logged and plotted in real-time on screen, the company explained.
Alastair Mclennan-Murray, technical director, said: “The long range, high accuracy capability of the ISA500 unit makes it an excellent unit for basic hydrographic survey purposes. Building on the capabilities already offered in the seaView software package, we wanted to provide a capability to conduct basic hydrographic surveys quickly and easily.”
The seaView Hydro Survey is aimed at basic hydrographic survey applications, such as sediment monitoring in ports and harbours.
