The new HydroSweep data output does not only make the work flow more flexible and user friendly; it also enables new features. The HydroSweep now comprises bathymetric data, classical high-resolution side scan information as well as snippet amplitude information and advanced processing capabilities such as compressed water column data. All data can be acquired by hydrographic software, for visualisation and processing. Hydrographic and imaging data processing with industry standard processing tools is fully supported and allows state-of-the art data workflows and survey results.

Teledyne PDS is the first hydrographic software suite to be interfaced to the new HydroSweep S7K data output stream. Teledyne RESON is working closely with other software vendors of hydrographic software suites to interface HydroSweep S7K.
