    Covers all relevant instruments for hydrographic surveys

    NaviSuite Kuda interfaces with a long list of high-tech sonar equipment, LiDARs and cameras

    Moreover, the EIVA crew encompasses experienced engineers specialising in software and sensor technology. This means that you get a software solution developed by a highly qualified team of experts who know how to ensure that you benefit the most from the technologies included in your hydrographic survey spread.

    Eliminate the need for manufacturer-developed software

    In addition to cameras and LiDARs, the list of sonar types which NaviSuite Kuda interfaces with includes multi-beam echo sounders (supported by all NaviSuite Kuda variants), sidescan sonars, sub-bottom profiler and magnetometers. More simple solutions such as single beam echo sounders are also covered by the more than 500 drivers included in the bundle (supported by the NaviSuite Kuda Pro variants). 

    The software allows for support of multiple sensor heads at the same time (limited to dual head in the NaviSuite Kuda Core variants) during your hydrographic survey operations and tracking of a towed or remotely operated vehicle via USBL (available in the NaviSuite Kuda Pro variants). 

    NaviSuite Kuda allsow for AIS connections and interfaces to standard navigation equipment (GPS, MRU, INS, etc), allows for S-57 generation (optional extra) and supports SevenCs charts, raster maps such as GeoTIFF files from, for example, satellite images, 2D/3D CAD and GIS objects. In addition, you can export your results to GISs and videos in NaviSuite Kuda + Processing variants, as well as load saved projects into the free NaviModel Viewer.

    Consequently, the need for manufacturer-developed software is eliminated, and you only have to invest in a single software solution for your hydrographic surveys. Moreover, as you are not working with several different solutions and data formats, the risk of errors is vastly reduced.

    … Then apply the raw data throughout the workflow of your hydrographic surveys

    In NaviSuite Kuda, the acquired data can be applied as raw data and combined throughout your acquisition and processing workflow. This means that you save time and are able to create a single end report with all relevant hydrographic/bathymetric data included.

    Optional extra unit: Increase precision of data

    As NaviSuite Kuda supports standard vessel navigation equipment such as GPSs, motion reference units (MRUs) and INSs, you are ensured a high precision of your data – a very high precision, if desired, by adding the certified EIVA ATTU time-tagging unit as an optional extra to your NaviSuite Kuda setup. The EIVA ATTU offers a time-tagging accuracy better than 50 µSec, which is far superior to what can be obtained through the use of the standard clock of an ordinary computer.

    General visualisation features

    Take a peek at NaviSuite’s powerful visualisation features – data can be visualised in 2D, 3D, side view or by time.

    3D seabed terrain 

    Visualise seabed terrain in the powerful 3D environment of NaviSuite, which provides many easy-to-use tools to effectively display data of interest. You can model the seabed terrain in colour modes representing information of the data modelled such as depth, slope, intensity, backscatter, standard deviation and ETC. These different colour modes can be displayed alongside each other in different views of your model, as well as with added contour lines (see an example in the video below).

    Smoothly navigate survey results in NaviSuite’s high-performing 3D environment. NaviSuite uses a highly effective LOD method for visualising models, allowing the software to ensure optimal data presentation by making the most of your graphics card.

    3D seabed terrain

    Multiple Map Views

    You can display different views simultaneously, so you can keep track of different information visually. Map Views can for example be a map showing your location, 3D visualisations viewed from different angles and visualisations of data from different sensors. Each individual Map View window can be configured separately, so you can make a Map View displaying virtually any information you require.

    Background Maps 

    You can import existing third-party maps for example for line planning, navigation and procession quality control. Maps which can be displayed in NaviSuite include background maps from Web Map Service (WMS), geocoded images (for example geotiff), CAD drawings (for example DXF or DWG) and MicroStation drawings.

    Background Maps

    Import 3D models 

    3D models can be imported into NaviSuite (drag and drop into the Map View window) and displayed in this high-performance solution. This means that you can add 3D models of permanent structures on the seabed, such as foundations for offshore wind turbines, as well as templates for structures yet to be built. Not only that, NaviSuite also allows you to use a 3D model to display a dynamically positioned object, such as your vessel.

    Import 3D models

    Link a 3D models to the vessel

    Ensure quality control by getting a better view of the true scale of your model. NaviSuite allows the operator to attach real 3D models of vessels and vehicles to the 3D seabed display. The models can for example be in 3DS, STEP and OBJ mesh formats.

    Link 3D models to live objects

    2D, 3D and side-view displays 

    NaviSuite facilitates better data interpretation by making it easy for the user to quickly change the view displayed. Display options are 2D, 3D and side-view, as shown in the tool bar. Orientation can be user-defined, north up, vehicle up or line up.

    3D, 2D and side-view displays

    Visibility Slider 

    The visibility slider allows users to compare different DTMs quickly.  This enables comparison over time or between different data processing methods, in 2D and 3D.

    Features enabling autonomous operations

    NaviSuite Kuda enables autonomous operations with tools to automate your survey every step of the way – from survey route planning to remote controlled, autopilot operations. Dive into how…

    Automatic survey route planning tools

    Ensure efficient coverage during surveys with tools for survey route planning. These intuitive tools help ensure your survey is performed optimally – through highly customisable and automated route planning.

    Onboard automatic route planning during surveys

    Conditions such as the weather can influence your coverage during a survey. In order to adapt to such factors, you can use the Coverage Assist tool, which plans runlines in real-time during the survey. Each time it creates a runline, it considers the previous surveyed line, as well as the optimal route for turning. This saves you time as it makes decisions onboard the vessel in real-time.

    Autopilot route planning by defining a boundary

    The vehicle route can be automatically created before a survey, based on a boundary. If your vessel has an NMEA autopilot, you can export route plans from NaviSuite to the onboard piloting system.

    You can design the lawn mower type pattern depending on the desired spacing and orientation. You can also create an exclusion zone within the boundary.

    Remote control from anywhere in the world

    NaviSuite software enables you to operate control systems from anywhere in the world. For example, L3HARRIS performed a harbour survey with a USV in the UK while the data control was streamed to Brazil.

    Remote control even at low bandwidth

    One of the challenges to remote control is low data bandwidth. With NaviSuite you can overcome this in several ways…

    Live data compression

    You can compress survey data in many ways to ensure uninterrupted signal. NaviSuite compression tools work on multi-beam echosounder, sidescan, laser and forward-looking sonar data.

    The settings you can adjust include Along, which allows you to skip scans. As well as Across, which reduces the points across the scan, and analyses points with respect to depth change to then keep more points where there are areas of change.

    Pre-plan autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) operations

    NaviSuite lets you remotely control an AUV without requiring constant connection. You can send small mission updates to your AUV, requiring only one good link moment to input your instructions – for example to go at a certain depth, pitch and heading. This capability means that no matter if the connection fails, the AUV will follow the directions you input in your latest mission update.

    Rather than assuming one method will always work perfectly, with EC-3D, you can use a variety of different methods to identify noise in your data. The many data cleaning methods featured in EC-3D include…

    • Histogram Spike Shooting
    • Histogram Plane Cleaning
    • Distance from surface (DTM only)
    • Distance to nearest neighbour
    • Number of neighbours in a sphere
    • Mean distance to X number of neighbours
    • Grouping of adjacent points based on proximity

    You can import and customise the parameters of individual cleaning methods.

    EC-3D Automated

    Combine cleaning methods

    You can run multiple cleaning methods simultaneously, combined in different ways. You can save and load your EC-3D method configurations, so you can use them again on several data sets.

    When combining cleaning methods, you can group them as Relative or Absolute. Absolute methods will clean points regardless of any other cleaning method. While Relative methods will clean points in voted-based manner. For example, ‘at least two out of four methods must agree on a point being marked as noise before it is removed’.

    Automatic processing features

    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.

    AUV processing workflow

    NaviSuite Kuda processing workflow

    The Workflow Manager desktop version is very well suited for NaviSuite Kuda operations where each file will be processed right after recording, thus enabling reporting and quality control as you go. The Desktop version runs one task at the time – but it is more than fast enough to cope with survey speed.
