Service + Software for Seafloor Mapping
In August and September of 2008, OIC provided data acquisition and processing services to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) as part of NAVFAC’s Santa Monica Basin Cable Route Survey. The survey covered a corridor of 1,000 meters wide by 17,000 meters long at depth of 2,500 feet using SAIC’s FOCUS deep-tow survey system with EdgeTech 2200DW sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiler, and a Reson Seabat 8101 multibeam echo sounder. OIC’s proprietary software, GeoDAS, was used to acquire the Reson 8101 bathymetry data. OIC’s proprietary software, CleanSweep, was used to process the sidescan and multibeam data resulting in a high-resolution sidescan imagery map and a 3m x 3m bathymetry grid.
