:Product Overview


Crisp real-time 3D sonar imagery

For use with the Echoscope® range of real-time 3D sonars, the CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) software will enable you to view the subsea scene in the highest definition possible and has been developed specifically to provide significant productivity and result processing capability. Now, with our unique Volume Rendering engine and further enhanced by optional software modules and application specific solutions, each USE edition can be used for a host of subsea projects to increase productivity and enhance underwater visualisation.

The CodaOctopus® USE Editions are:

  •  USE Advanced: An intermediate level for access to more mapping type features
  •  USE Professional: Highest level software edition to access all available functionality. The top-level USE Professional edition captures all software features for optimising the visualisation of Echoscope® 3D data with options for live tagging and full editing of markers, simultaneous export to 3rd party navigation systems, beam-by-beam editing, alongside a number of digital terrain model (DTM) output methods and Volumetric Rendering engine which enables data to be rendered as a textured model with much higher resolution than normal and a more efficient memory storage.

Significant advantages to USE editions can be made by adding optional software modules or through application specific packages. Modules such as Baseline Comparison, Models and Exporting can easily be added to USE Professional either at the time of order or by upgrading at a later date.

Designed specifically for optimising data imagery from the world’s leading real time 3D sonar, the Echoscope®, USE editions with optional Modules and Application Software solutions will deliver unsurpassed results whatever your subsea operational needs.
