Our standard package. It has everything you need to design your survey, collect your single beam data, process it and generate final products, such as contours, plotting sheets, output for CAD, fly-through views, cross sections and volumes calculations. The sidescan sonar, subbottom, adcp and magnetometer collection and processing modules are standard features of HYPACK® MAX. You’ll need to add a HYSWEEP® license to include the modules for multibeam data collection and processing.
Design: HYPACK® contains powerful tools that let you quickly design your survey:
Set your geodetic parameters
Import background charts: DXF, DGN, S-57, TIF, MrSid, ARCS
Configure your survey equipment:
Create your planned lines:
Parallel & Perpendicular patterns
CHANNEL DESIGN automatically creates planned lines and cross section profiles for channels and turning basins.
ADVANCED CHANNEL DESIGN creates complex 3D surfaces for precise dredging and volume computations.
Editing: HYPACK® provides graphical editing and sounding selection routines that allow you to quickly prepare your survey data for plotting, export to CAD or several other final products. The SINGLE BEAM EDITOR of HYPACK® provides for:
Graphical review and editing of tracklines and depth profiles
Display of acoustic profile for network capable soundings
Display of design templates and previous survey profiles
Water level (tides) adjustments
Real time telemetry gauges
Manually entered tides
Tide Adjustments between stations
Sound Velocity corrections
Sounding Reduction: There are several options for sounding reduction, depending on your final product:
SORT selects the shoalest soundings and prevents overwrites.
CROSS SORT selects random soundings and packs them in tight.
SOUNDING SELECTION selects min/max soundings and fills in between.
MAPPER is a binning routine that can select minimum, maximum, average, or sounding closest to cell center to represent each cell.
Volumes Calculations: The HYPACK® ability to compute volume quantities is unsurpassed. It can compute volume quantities either from sections across channels or from surface models (TIN MODEL).
The CROSS SECTIONS AND VOLUMES program quickly computes volume quantities for cross sectional profile lines compared to the channel design template and channel overdepth template for each line. The program is the de facto standard for volume computations by several national survey agencies. Over 20 methods are available to compute the area and volume of material for each profile segment (left slope, main channel, right slope), it can compute quantities for a single survey versus the design template, or for a pre-dredge versus an after-dredge comparison. CROSS SECTION AND VOLUMES can read hundreds of sections, compute the volumes and send all of the sections to the printer/plotter in a matter of seconds. Additionally, the beach volumes supports beach replenishment projects.
The TIN MODEL program of HYPACK® can be used to compute several types of volume quantities. Input data can be from single beam, multibeam or multiple transducer surveys.
Reservoir volumes: Computes the volume and surface area of a reservoir at user-defined water levels.
Channel volumes: Computes the volume quantities of the TIN surface versus a set of planned lines and their channel design templates.
ADVANCED CHANNEL DESIGN volumes: Computes volume quantities of the TIN surface versus a complex area created in ADVANCED CHANNEL DESIGN.
Survey versus Survey volumes: Computes the volume quantity between two different surveys of an area.
