Hypack has announced that its Hypack Max and Hysweep hydrographic surveying packages can now be used to process and display data from Sonardyne's Solstice side-scan sonar.

Hypack users can now gather Sonardyne’s Solstice sonar data, process it through their editors and generate final products.

With over 10,000 users around the world, Hypack is the most widely used hydrographic software package in the world. The addition of the Sonardyne proprietary file format to the data converter in Hypack Max and Hysweep means that Hypack users can gather Solstice sonar data, process it through their editors and generate final products.

The data converter supports both the intensity and bathymetry data generated by Solstice. Options in the converter allow users to select full resolution side-scan, along with binned or full resolution, swath bathymetry. The resultant output file can be processed in the 64-bit Hysweep editor, MBMax64, for multibeam processing or in the Hypack targeting and mosaicking program, Hyscan, for side-scan data.

Solstice is a Multi Aperture Sonar (MAS) designed for Search, Classify and Map (SCM) and Hydrographic operations with integrated swath bathymetry. It has been tailored for low-logistic AUVs and gathers high resolution imagery that can be used for automatic target recognition, hydrography and post-mission analysis. With an along-track resolution of 0.15°, the imagery produced by Solstice is considered to be of the highest quality possible from a side-scan sonar.  

The Hypack Max software has everything required to design a survey, collect, process and generate final products from single beam data, side-scan sonar, sub-bottom, ADCP and magnetometres. The Hysweep license includes the modules for multibeam data collection and processing and is required to process Solstice interferometric data.

Harold Orlinsky, General Manager of Hypack, said: “The addition in the data converter allows folks to use our software to take full advantage of Sonardyne’s Solstice sonar. MBMax64 quickly handles the bathymetry through automated and manual filters, and interactive editing whislt Hyscan creates the side-scan mosaic. Combined, the end result is a co-located data set that can be combined and analysed in Hypack.”

Ioseba Tena, Global Business Manager for Sonardyne added: “Hypack has a long track record in the industry and it’s great that our customers can now count on this powerful software suite to manage their projects and generate client deliverables.”
