NOAA’s Office of Coast Survey directs field programs for ship- and shore-based hydrographic survey units; develops hydrographic survey specifications; conducts technological development and application programs to increase efficiency in survey data acquisition, data processing, and chart production; and carries out research to develop techniques and methods for accomplishing these objectives.To learn more, visit: http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/hsd/hydrog.htm For information about Patch Test Procedures, see:Specs and deliverables (section 126.96.36.199)Field Procedure Manual (section 188.8.131.52.2)
Vessel: R/V Kilo Moana Multibeam System: EM122 Dates: 2012 KILO MOANA’s acoustic signature was higher than previous acoustical data due to electronic noise interference.
11/18/2015 — admin The 14nd edition of Kongsberg Maritime’s biennial Forum for Exchange of Mutual Multibeam Experiences (FEMME 2015) conference was held in Singapore from 17.
Swath coverage performance can be evaluated by extracting the outermost port and starboard soundings to compute swath width from data acquired in a variety of water depths.
Vessel: R/V Melville Multibeam System: EM122 Dates: January 2012 R/V MELVILLE acoustic signature was successfully measured during this acoustic test.
