RV Hugh Sharp 2016 QAT Visit



The R/V Hugh R. Sharp is equipped with a Reson 7125 SVP2 (200/400 kHz) multibeam echosounder installed on a drop keel and an Applanix POS-MV 320 positioning and attitude system. Traditionally, survey planning and data acquisition are handled using Hypack HYSWEEP software installed on the RESON acquisition machine.

Hugh R. Sharp 2012 Sea Acceptance Report

The Reson 7125 system is correctly installed and integrated with the POSMV and Hypack acquisition system and there is no indication of errors in the integration of the systems. There remains uncertainty in the absolute accuracy of the depths due to the inadequately documented sonar z-offset calculation. High quality surveys were collected during the cruise immediately following Hurricane Sandy (Nov. 10, 2012) and attest to the quality of the installation and the integration of the survey system components.
