“Chesapeake continues to be one of the top choices for processing sidescan imagery, generating mosaics, as well as detecting and reporting features of interest. The new SonarWiz is a leap ahead with its enhanced support for interferometric bathymetry and AUV-based data management, processing, and rendering,” said Straud Armstrong of L-3 Communications Klein Associates, Inc. “The workflow is clear, comprehensive, and repeatable, while the terrain models and target feature reports are easy to use, share and interpret. With SonarWiz, Chesapeake continues to be a top choice for sidescan acoustic image mapping and now also bathymetric data processing, rendering, and reporting. Well done!”
