Teledyne CARIS Releases HIPS and SIPS v10.4

FREDERICTON, Canada, Nov 1, 2017 – Teledyne CARIS has announced the release of HIPS and SIPS 10.4. This version introduces the first commercial release of CIDCO’s Automatic Boresight Calibration tool, providing a systematic approach to calibration as an alternative to the traditional, manual patch test.

Borrowing adjustment techniques from the Lidar industry, the new Multibeam-IMU Automatic Calibration (MIBAC) algorithm developed by CIDCO is now available in HIPS. The Automatic Boresight Calibration tool is designed to simplify both survey planning and post-processing for calibration requirements, requiring fewer survey lines in the field and providing a repeatable, robust calculation of the boresight angles between the IMU and sonar in post-processing in just a few clicks. The algorithm also provides immediate feedback to the processor on the quality and confidence of the calculation.
