Navigation and positioning

NaviPac provides positioning and navigation features for surface and/or subsea vehicles. It comes in four variants:

  • NaviPac Pro, the variant you see here
  • NaviPac Single User, which offers all the features of NaviPac Pro, limited to a single network/remote client and a single subsea object
  • NaviPac Lite, which is tailored to vessel-based surveys with a single beam echo sounder
  • NaviPac Tug, which is dedicated to the tug boat during anchor handling operations, rig moves and similar jobs

With NaviPac Pro, you get the most elaborate variant of the three and can thus benefit from the entire range of features offered by NaviPac for surveys carried out with multi-beam echo sounders, side-scan sonars and/or lasers.

    Navigation and routes features

    NaviPac is an integrated navigation and data acquisition software solution that includes surface and subsea navigation, route and waypoint planning, live tracking and piloting.

    Live position of multiple objects

    NaviPac Helmsman’s Display 4 (based on the same core as NaviModel) supports display of vehicle data (main vessel, ROV, ROTV, remotes etc) based on the NaviPac data feed. The data can be shown graphically in multiple map views.

    Live position of multiple objects

    AIS tracks

    All variants of NaviPac supports integration with AIS receivers. The data is read into NaviPac and can be shown in a dedicated AIS window and overlaid in the HMD. We perform an even read and utilise vessel dimension information.

    AIS tracks

    Display north-up, heading-up, route-up

    Each Map View can be designed and controlled individually when it comes to content, overlays and layout. Map Views can be 2D, 3D or side-views, and orientation can be user defined, north-up, vehicle up or line up.

    Display north-up, heading-up, route-up

    Manual runline drawing

    NaviPac supports a series of runline and waypoint formats including our own RLX/WPT format, ad generic ASCII readers. You can also draw lines and points directly in the Map View.

    Various runline patterns (parallel, cross, star)

    You can inherit multiple lines based on the base line defined, such as parallel or cross lines to get an optimal route plan.

    Vehicle control panel for multiple vehicle runlines and display DOL

    Assignment of lines and waypoints are handled through the dedicated Vehicle Control view, as you may control multiple vehicles simultaneously. Each controlled vehicle will be available as distance offline indicator (DOL/DCC) and various runline information (along line, target ETA etc.).

    Vehicle control panel for multiple vehicle runlines and display DOL

    Auto-coverage runlines based on sonar

    HMD 4 includes a tool for automated runline generation for MBE site surveys. Initially the surveyor defines the first runline, and then HMD will the continuously calculate the outer limit for the line based on coverage and density requirements, and thus automatically calculate the next line. This tool is very suitable e.g., for vessel mounted solution for NaviSuite Kuda or for ASV/USV operations.

    Auto-coverage runlines based on sonar

    Automatic run-in for next runline

    When using the auto-coverage tool you may also introduce the automatic run-in. The system will be based on vessel turn capabilities and calculate the shortest route to the next line.

    Automatic run-in for next runline

    Distance to waypoint

    Waypoints are handled in a similar manner to runlines, as assignment of the waypoint is done in the Vehicle Control View. Hereafter, an artificial runline is created from the vehicle to the point and NaviPac monitors the range/bearing to the destination. and can a,.o. feed that into autopilots and DP systems.

    Distance to waypoint

    Multi-object live range/bearing

    In the HMD you may pair any live vehicle (e.g. Vessel and ROV) and monitor the range/bearings between them for online display as live data and range information on Map Views.

    Multi-object live range/bearing

    Auto-pilot (NMEA) control

    When using runlines and waypoints you may connect NaviPac to autopilot systems using e.g., standard NMEA formats and pass cross-track error and destination waypoints on to the equipment.

    Auto-pilot (NMEA) control

    DataUnits

    NaviPac 4.2 supports use of other data units in addition to metric. The unit is selected in the project settings and all definition fields are then assumed to be in the selected data unit. 
    HMD will follow the selected data unit, but you may, by using a simple keystroke, toggle between metric and data unit if required.
    Data recording will still be metric to guarantee data integrity, but data outputs can be selected freely.

    Subsurface positioning (USBL, DVL, INS, Gyro, IMU)

    SBE - single beam echo sounder

    Single beam echo sounders and other single source data suppliers can easily be interfaced in NaviPac, either via standard drivers or enhanced user-configurable drivers. Data will be available for display in both Helmsman’s Display and DataMon. Single source data can be shown as points clouds in the HMD – and you can automatically derive DTMs out of it.

    We can create point clouds from sonar and laser systems or from historical XYZ files. Within NaviModel, there are many ways to visualise, edit and optimise point data.

    Import XYZ files

    XYZ files can be imported as DTMs, Point Clouds, or TIN Models.

    Import XYZ files

    Point clouds with RGB and Intensity

    By default, point clouds can be visualised as a solid colour or as a depth palette. However, if source files contain RGB or Intensity values, we can choose to colour the point cloud with this information instead.

    Point clouds with RGB and Intensity

    Manual cleaning

    A selection window or a polygon can be used to manually clean point clouds.

    Manual cleaning

    Import LAS files and display as RGB or Intensity

    LAS files can be imported as DTMs or as point clouds.  

    Point clouds can be displayed as one solid colour, as RGB values or as Intensity values.

    Point Cloud Registration (Quickstitch)

    If point clouds are misaligned, we can use Point Cloud Registration to align them. We accomplish this by first digitising common features, and then performing a least-squared adjustment that moves one point cloud to another.

    Live subsea construction features

    NaviSuite Uca is a configurable and integrated software solution for dredging, excavation, exclamation and similar – supporting bucket, clamshell and suction dredgers.

    Material removal from DTM (dredging) - bucket

    NaviSuite Uca supports several solutions for boom/stick excavation using both bucket and clamshell. The solution can e.g. be based on Trimble, eTrack or custom sensors for positioning each moving component.

    Material removal from DTM (dredging) - bucket

    Material removal from DTM (dredging) - wire clamshell

    NaviSuite Uca supports various wirecrane solutions (e.g. Henngstler, Trimble and Liebherr) for excavation. DataMon interfaces the cable counters and will, in a calibrated manner, use the information to position clamshell and opening angle of the clam.

    Material removal from DTM (dredging) - clamshell

    Material addition to DTM (rock placement)

    NaviSuite Uca supports rock and material placement for both bucket and clamshell solutions. The system uses semi-automatic methods, as the operator presses a button and uses a foot-pedal to mark where material is placed. Uca will then add the corresponding material to the model based on a cone figure.

    Material addition to DTM (rock placement)

    Reporting

    During an operation, NaviSuite Uca gives fast and reliable reports on the progress based on both live colour coding of the terrain and volume reporting. The result can be brought into NaviModel to make a final report project and use this as documentation and handout, as illustrated here where the entire operation was performed in one process without any second passes.

    Synchronise video with track

    In NaviModel the track contains the date and time and must be synchronised with the video time to enable videos to play.

    Normally the video time and track time are recorded in the same time zone. However sometimes this is not the case and we need the option to change the video / track time so that video will play.
