Teledyne CARIS launches HIPS Essential
3 April 2017
Teledyne CARIS is pleased to announce the release of HIPS Essential, the newest edition to the flagship HIPS and SIPS suite of products. It has been designed keeping the needs of Ports and Waterways, small survey companies and small hydrographic offices in mind.
HIPS Essential is a lightweight subset of the powerful HIPS and SIPS application. It is ideally suited for organisations or individuals wanting a streamlined software package for bathymetry processing.
HIPS Essential includes the tools necessary to support both single beam and multibeam sonar data including the necessary calibration routines required to deliver accurate data. It supports 2D and 3D visualisation, data cleaning, and provides the tools to extract contours, soundings and bathymetric surfaces for downstream product creation. It also includes the powerful CUBE surface-cleaning tool to further reduce the data processing timeline. End-to-end process automation can be achieved with the new Process Designer, maximising time management and user reducing subjectivity.
"We have spent 25 years producing HIPS and SIPS software with a huge number of tools and possibilities. We felt it was time to release a lightweight version to address the specific needs of those tasked with straight forward bathymetry surveys while at the same time eliminating the burden of entry," said Andy Hoggarth, Chief Business Development Officer, Teledyne CARIS.
HIPS Essential maintains the robust nature you have come to expect from CARIS products and is easily expandable to meet the growing needs of an organisation or company. It is offered at a cost effective price with lease-to-own options.
