seaView can connect to all Impact Subsea sensors – a single sensor can be connected to or multiple sensors simultaneously.
All data output from the sensors can be viewed on a single screen, or split across several screens.
In the example seaView screen to the left, there are three sensors connected – two ISA500 units and one ISD4000 unit.
In addition to viewing live data, data can be logged for review at a later date or for post processing. All sensor data can be saved into a CSV file.
GPS can optionally also be input into seaView, allowing all data to be logged and georeferenced.
All Impact Subsea sensors can be configured via the seaView software. All settings are set on screen, then hard stored in the sensor flash memory.
In many cases, seaView is run only once – to initially setup a sensor for a particular mode of operation.
A heading calibration can be conducted on all sensors with integrated AHRS (Attitude & Heading Reference System). This will ensure that the sensors achieve exceptionally high heading accuracy, by taking into account hard and soft iron properties of their surrounding.
Conduct Single Beam Echosounder Surveys
Using the Hydro Survey App within seaView, the ISA500 sensor can be used as a single beam echo sounder. GPS can be fed into seaView allowing all echo ranges to be georeferenced.
A 2D display is provided during data gathering and at the flick of a virtual switch, the data is converted into a 3D subsea terrain.
Conduct Flooded Member Detection Surveys
Using the FMD application within seaView, the ISA500 sensor can be used as a Flooded Member Detection probe. The FMD application allows a representation of the underwater member to be produced on screen and samples taken and logged at user defined points.
The ISD4000 can also be used in the application to record the exact depth and temperature at each point a measurement is made.
