DELPH Version 3.0
DELPH SAS - Synthetic Aperture Sonar

iXBlue is pleased to announce a new addition to DELPH Sonar Interpretation: DELPH S.A.S.

All Synthetic Aperture Sonars - SAS - require dedicated processing software for dealing with the amount and format of the SAS collected data. This hardly accommodates requirements from the survey industry to standardize the processing and interpretation tasks for geophysical data. iXBlue especially addresses this need with SAS integration into DELPH Sonar Interpretation software suite. The addition of a new module – DELPH SAS – fully integrates Synthetic Aperture Sonar imaging into an industry proven processing software.

DELPH is an industry leading software suite providing the best productivity in a user-friendly environment thanks to a highly optimized workflow. Appreciated by major survey companies it now allows the full integration of SAS data together with conventional side-scan sonar, bathymetry, sub-bottom profiling, magnetic and other information layers. All existing features available in DELPH Sonar Interpretation like batch data processing and mosaicking, target picking and management, interpretation and seabed classification are now also available for SAS imagery. DELPH SAS processing tightly couples sonar and positioning data, thus naturally producing accurately geo-referenced images, with a very robust algorithm that is not sensible to vehicle movements. Near perfect line matching immediately benefits to data interpretation and minimal positioning ambiguity helps in targeting accuracy.

Multi-ping integration in SAS processing results in superior image quality, resolution and range. DELPH SAS can also integrate co-registered gap-filler images of the seabed at nadir to allow full-swath sonar coverage. The need for overlapping survey lines is reduced and further optimization in survey planning is possible. Duplicate data management is limited, thus saving time and money. As data processing and mosaicking are faster than real-time, online data interpretation is even made possible.

DELPH SAS software complements iXBlue’s offer in scalable SAS tow-fish and AUV solutions for the commercial and scientific survey needs. DELPH SAS runs on any standard computer and is compatible with any SAS that delivers raw data.

DELPH Version 3.0
DELPH Suite version 3.0

iXBlue is pleased to announce a new release of DELPH Software Suite.

iXBlue introduces a new version of the DELPH geophysical software suite. This major 3.0 release introduces a number of new tools and functions to simplify survey acquisition operations and boost side-scan sonar, seismic or sub-bottom profiler and magnetic data processing and analysis.

This fresh new release includes lots of new features to increase DELPH mapping and interpretation capabilities:
  • DELPH Sonar Interpretation features a new mosaicking algorithm to perform much more accurate motion compensation and geo-referencing, especially for ROVs and AUVs that allow accurate heading, pitch and roll compensation.
  • DELPH Sonar Segmentation module allows supervised segmentation of sonar mosaics based on user-defined seabed patterns. This tool will help building a classification reference to initiate or qualify a manual seabed classification.
  • DELPH Seismic Interpretation features a new isopach map generator that creates thickness maps and isocurves in a snap.
  • DELPH RoadMap features more mapping and visualization tools like: 3D display of navigation layers and sonar coverage, cropping of maps using polygons, buidling isocuvres from map layers (bathymetry, magnetometer, isopach maps, etc.), labelling of vector layers.
  • DELPH RoadMap also features annotation tools that allow to design polylines, polygons and points directly onto sonar mosaics, DTMs, magnetic maps and any other layer.

DELPH goes one step ahead in providing the best all-in-one solution for geophysical data processing, interpretation and multi-sensor dataset integration.
