NOAA selects HYPACK and HYSWEEP software to support fishery and habitat mapping missions

HYPACK, Inc. recently supplied five NOAA Fishery Survey Vessels with the HYPACK and HYSWEEP software solution. The vessel, outfitted with the Simrad ME70 scientific multibeam system on board, is used by NOAA for various missions to support fishery and habitat mapping.

The latest version of HYSWEEP includes an interface for the ME70, for the data collection, and real time visualization of the sonar. The software suite will provide the operator with all the visualization tools included in the HYPACK and HYSWEEP software. In addition, the new Real Time Cloud provides the operator detailed views of the seafloor during the transect. This program will be useful for easier feature detection and categorization, system calibration and verification, and data quality control. Once data is collected, processing will be done through the HYSWEEP MBMAX64 software. On board the vessel, the scientific crew will be able to analyze the data set shortly after data collection.

The selection of the HYPACK and HYSWEEP solution on board the fishery vessels compliments the existing NOAA survey fleet that currently operates the HYPACK and HYSWEEP software. The standardization minimizes the training needed across the fleet personnel, to operate the system.
