Service + Software for Seafloor Mapping
In December of 2008 and January of 2009, OIC provided data processing services to Global Remote Sensing, LLC (GRS) as part of fiber optic cable landing site surveys in Southern Europe and the Middle East. GRS is based in Seattle, WA, but carries out hydrographic, geophysical, and geotechnical surveys around the world. This project was supporting the Atlantic-Mediterranean segment of the Europe-India Gateway Submarine Cable System, which when finished, would deliver 3.84 terabits per second, along the 15,000 km route.
OIC provided an on-site data processor for the Monaco landing site survey, as well as in-house data processing support from our office in Honolulu. The shallow-water data were acquired by GRS personnel aboard vessels utilizing towed and pole-mounted Teledyne Benthos C3D interferometric sonars. OIC’s proprietary software, GeoDAS, was used for data acquisition and OIC’s proprietary software, CleanSweep, was used for data processing.
