    Cutting a long survey story short: What you get

    Affordable software with deep feature list for shallow water surveys

    Combining several data types during acquisition and post-processing
    … through interfacing to high-tech sonars and lasers, thereby reducing costs and the risk of errors

    High-quality sensor processing and editing features
    … that minimise time spent on post-processing and improve the quality of your survey results

    Increased precision of data
    … through interfacing to standard vessel navigation equipment and the possibility to purchase the EIVA ATTU time-tagging unit as an optional extra

    High-performance data acquisition and processing in real time
    … as the size of data sets is only limited by disc capacity and it is possible to make terrain models on the fly, thereby allowing for better survey data quality and fast reporting

    Advanced sensor data acquisition and processing software

    NaviSuite Kuda is the optimal solution for time-efficient, high-quality shallow water surveys, such as harbour and waterway surveys, as well as construction inspections.

    By bundling the NaviSuite features relevant to these types of operations into a dedicated single-user solution, you get an affordable toolbox without compromising on the quality of its contents or its capacity, as it is only the disc size that sets a limit for the size of data handled by the software.

    As NaviSuite Kuda is part of the NaviSuite family, you can easily upgrade your solution should your needs change in terms of licences or features. In other words, you can go from a single-user setup to a large network installation with multiple operators and remote displays without changing software.

    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 waypoint 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.

    Manual waypoint drawing

    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.

    Various runline patterns (parallel, cross, star)

    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.

    The NaviSuite Workflow Manager tool is designed to enable a previously unseen degree of automatic data processing of massive amounts of subsea sensor data.

    AUV processing workflow

    The first version of the Workflow Manager utilises NaviEdit and NaviModel for a traditional survey data set processing of data from AUV dive. As soon as the data is available, it is automatically loaded into the flow and processed by cleaning data, merging reprocessed AUV track, building DTMs and making sanity checks. This is typically done using the Server version.

    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.

    Adjust video hue, brightness, contrast and gamma levels

    Hue, brightness, contrast and gamma levels can be adjusted to improve badly lit videos.
