Teledyne BlueView released its ProMapper software package, an intuitive geomosaicking program that places 2D forward looking sonar (FLS) imagery over an aerial image or a nautical chart. By combining a GPS and compass with a standard BlueView 2D sonar, ProMapper users will significantly increase their sonar’s usability and value in the field, as well as post mission. For the first time, BlueView’s customer’s can track area coverage and create area sonar maps during their search and/or survey operations. ProMapper is the first application extension (AppEx) for BlueView’s 2D sonar.

“The placement of the sonar tracks onto geo-referenced backgrounds provides operators with greatly improved situational awareness” said Blueview’s chief hydrographer Nick Lesnikowski. The simplicity of the software ensures that all of BlueView’s customer will be able to take advantage of the ProMapper package, not just experienced surveyors. In addition, ProMapper integrates seamlessly into BlueView’s BV3200 deployment system with built in GPS and compass, removing nearly all the integration setup hurdles one might expect.

“Teledyne BlueView is continually improving the capabilities of our sonar systems and providing new and innovative ways that our sonar systems can provide the best deliverables to the underwater imaging markets, said Scott Bachelor, General Manager. ‘By developing these software packages that are compatible with systems that are in the field existing customers see value added immediately with ProMapper software.”
