Teledyne CARIS™ has released a new product that enables the processing of data in near real-time and minimizes data conversion and processing times. Designed with autonomous operations in mind, CARIS Onboard requires less interaction for automated survey activities, which will save valuable time.
This release introduces several new processes including the incorporation of the SIPS™ Backscatter engine. Backscatter mosaics can now be generated alongside surfaces in near real-time. This version also presents the ability to compute GPS tide, and apply observed depth and attitude filters.
In addition to expanding the HIPS and SIPS™ processes available for real-time automation, there is a new copy process that permits raw data and computed products to be backed up automatically, thereby making it transferrable to portable storage devices.
CARIS Onboard 1.1 also adds significant automation capabilities to the CARIS workflow by enhancing the Process Designer and improving usability and flexibility. Custom controls are now available to help the user populate options when configuring process models.
Parallel workflows have been introduced to the Process Designer. By incorporating parallel workflows, a single model can be used to automatically create multiple products from raw sensor data, increasing survey efficiency by further reducing post-processing efforts.
The enhanced Process Designer also introduces conditional logic. Conditional logic allows users to build robust workflows which are capable of handling multiple scenarios. For example, if there is no sound velocity file available to be applied in a process step, then conditional logic can be used to skip that step and carry on. This application is particularly important during unmanned operations. Find out more about Teledyne CARIS by visiting www.teledynecaris.com.
