Coda Octopus today announced that it has started Beta-trials with its revolutionary new 5-Dimensional and 6-Dimensional Imaging Sonars, branded Echoscope® PIPE (Parallel Intelligent Processing Engine).
The 5-D and 6-D Echoscope® PIPE sonars embed the Company’s new innovative high-powered and extensible real-time processing engine. The current Echoscope® variants in the market can output up to 16,384 points per ping within the sonars field of view using a single set of processing parameters. In our new 5-D and 6-D sonars we can not only capture (for offline beamforming), and process the full backscatter (time series) data of up to 40 million points per ping, but make all of this data available in real-time for top-end visualization and processing. Supported by a range of advanced signal processing options, Echoscope® PIPE is revolutionary as it allows our customers to access the entirety of the available sonar data for multiple simultaneous outputs such as multiple 4D Images with different processing and/or the full backscatter (time series) output given much greater range and image fidelity – all from a single sensor in real-time. From complex live operations to autonomous vehicle data collection missions, this technology and capability presents a paradigm shift for marine and ocean monitoring and mapping.
