Multiple sonar detections from both Kongsberg and Teledyne sensors are now supported. This capability can highlight additional contacts present within the water column that may require closer investigation.
Full Time Series backscatter data can now be processed with SIPS Backscatter to support both Teledyne and Kongsberg data. The workflow to process Time Series data is as seamless as it was before, with a single additional step after standard multibeam bathymetry processing to produce high quality, fully correct backscatter mosaics. This can further enhanced for Teledyne sensors through the support for normalized backscatter.
The Engineering Analysis Module (EAM), previously available as an optional add-on to BASE Editor, is now a newly available add-on to the HIPS package. The EAM module provides seafloor analysis tools for dredging and other engineering operations including the creation of channel reference models and volume computations.
