    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.

    Setting up a remote or subsea vehicles is done in a similar manner to the main vessel – easy and intuitive. Adding instruments, positioning sources (transponders, INS, LBL etx) and defining weighting and Kalman filter settings is possible.

    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, either via standard drivers or enhanced user-configurable drivers. Single source data can be shown as points clouds in the NaviPac window – and you can automatically derive DTMs out of it.

    SBE single beam echo sounders

    FLS - forward looking sonar (wedge and mosaic)

    NaviSuite Kuda Pro supports a series of forward looking sonars such as eg. Tritech, Didson and Norbit. The data is interfaced and recorded, then made available for display in NaviPac as both a stand-alone wedge display and 3D wedge display in the Map views.

    FLS forward looking sonar (wedge and mosaic)

    Visualise multi-beam echo sounder and laser data

    When you have interfaced and recorded data from multi-beam echo sounder, laser or sidescan sonars in NaviSuite Kuda, you can easily display and quality control (QC) the data. This is done by using raw point clouds, terrain models or data profiles. On these results, you can QC your data by looking at data density, model standard deviation, etc.

    In addition, NaviSuite Kuda provides the EC-3D automatic data cleaning tool, which enables you to instantly yield deliverable results from your survey.

    MBE multi-beam echosounder (soundings and DTM)

    Display and event sidescan sonar data

    Sidescan data is can be interfaced in NaviSuite Kuda and recorded in the SBD data format. The data can be shown both in real-time and in replay in a special waterfall data display. This data display will also enable target markings (eventing) and image management.

    Configurable displays

    In the waterfall display, you can control the flow without disturbing the collection of data. You can, for example, look back in time and adjust your views based on slant range, speed and resolution. You can also show several waterfall displays on your screen, so you can for example view the data as it is collected in the one and use the other to look back and forth in the data. The waterfall display also features a zoom tool, which makes sure that, even on a small monitor, you can view areas of interest in full resolution.

    SSS sidescan sonar zoom tool

    Eventing

    You can register events simply by clicking on a target in the waterfall display. Your selected targets will be registered in the event window as well as your waterfall display and 2D/3D model. This data can easily be exported to NaviModel for further processing.

    SSS sidescan sonar eventing tool

    After registering an event, you can adjust the size and location of the target. The event will be correlated in all displays, so any changes you make are updated in all displays.

    The eventing tool also can be used to measure the length, width and height of the event.

    EC-3D Automated

    EC-3D features many data cleaning methods

    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’.

    EC-3D data cleaning votes relative methods

    Histogram Spike Shooting 

    Histogram Spike Shooting can be used to reject or accept DTM points.  

    Points are selected if they are inside a circle.

    Histogram automatically sets the rejection thresholds (can be manually over-ruled).

    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.

    NaviSuite Kuda processing workflow

    Execute multiple parallel NaviEdit, NaviModel and 3rd party commands

    The more CPU (cores), memory and disk speed you have – the better you utilise the workflow engine. The optimal solution is running a bit fewer processes than the number of cores.

    Eventing features

    The many eventing features include auto-calculation of event types and an easy-to-use event tablet view.

    Configurable event types, hierarchy, and properties

    Client and company specific event collections can be tailored to the activity undertaken.

    During EIVA Days Denmark 2018, we presented a major expansion to the functionality of camera based scanning.

    Configurable event types, hierarchy and properties

    Create events

    Events can be created quickly and are automatically placed onto a DTM.

    Tablet for fast event creation

    Using the eventing tablet view allows for quicker event creation. With the eventing tablet, you can quickly add all events, or customise which events to add with just a few steps.

    Tablet for fast event creation

    Create freespan and burial events

    Pipe and seabed markers are used to create freespan and burial events.

    This means that events and seabed markers always tie-in.

    Create freespan and burial events

    Recalculate events

    Events can be recalculated at any time.

    Recalculate events

    Export events

    User configurable templates can be created to export events in the format required.

    Export events

    Export nearest image and videos

    Images and videos can be exported for each event or for selected events.

    Export nearest image and videos

    Create pipetracker gap events

    Pipetracker gap events are created from continuous sections of rejected pipetracker data.

    Videos and images features

    Video and still images that contain time stamps can be combined with other data sources in NaviModel.

    Play and control video

    Digital video acquired in external systems can be played and controlled inside NaviModel.

    Play and control video

    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.

    Synchronise video with track

    Adjust video hue, brightness, contrast and gamma levels

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