Teledyne CARIS launches HIPS Essential

For Immediate Release

Fredericton, NB, Canada – April 03, 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 organizations 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 visualization, 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, maximizing 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.
