HYSWEEP® is an optional module of HYPACK® that integrates multibeam and multiple transducer sonar systems. It provides programs for: System alignment and calibration, Multibeam data collection and review, Multibeam data editing, QC and performance testing.

System Alignment: Using the integrated ‘Patch Test’ in HYSWEEP®’s MULTIBEAM EDITOR, you can quickly determine the exact mounting angles and time delays for both single and dual head multi-beam sonar systems. Your system calibration takes hours, not days.

Data Collection and Review: HYSWEEP® SUR-VEY runs simultaneous with the HYPACK® SURVEY program. It performs all data collection, logging and time tagging while providing graphics for data visualization, bottom coverage and quality control.

Multibeam Data Editing: HYSWEEP® provides powerful tools to review your data, apply geometric and statistical filtering methods to remove outliers and saves your editing session at any time. The MULTIBEAM EDITOR applies tidal corrections (both conventional and RTK tides) and sound velocity corrections to your data.

QC and Performance Testing: HYSWEEP® con-tains the Performance Test, as required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It provides a statistical summary of the repeatability of your system and justifies the use of wider beam angles for different sur-veys and bottom conditions. HYSWEEP® generates statistical comparisons between multibeam and single beam surveys, allowing you to determine the dif-ferences between the two data sets.

CUBE Integration: A new feature in HYSWEEP® is the integration of the ‘CUBE’ multibeam data clean-ing algorithm licensed from the University of New Hampshire’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Map-ping. HYCUBE generates error models of your mul-tibeam data set and outputs cleaned statistical and actual data sets.
