This release provides support for the new Kongsberg KMALL format, support for R2Sonic TruePix™ imagery as either side scan imagery or full Multiple Detections, and support for processing backscatter stored in Triton XTF format, from a variety of sonar types, with SIPS Backscatter.
R2Sonic TruePix™ imagery is now supported through two distinct workflows: processing as flat imagery similar to side scan processing, or in full 3D as part of our Multiple Detection workflow where points are imported as Additional Bathymetry for later use in target identification, feature development and more.
Currently available to limited clients, Kongsberg will soon be rolling out a new logging format KMALL with their latest-generation sonar systems worldwide. In anticipation of this change, CARIS Onboard now supports this new logging format across all of our broad toolset, including bathymetry and backscatter.
To support better integration between CARIS Onboard and 3rd– party acquisition systems, support for the Triton XTF format has now been extended for advanced processing in SIPS Backscatter. This includes support for Teledyne RESON and R2Sonic sonars as stored in the XTF format from common acquisition systems. Note not all system configurations are fully supported by the XTF format, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
