Changes in Multibeam Operations and Applications

Presented by David H. Fabre


Outline

Outline

  • Past

    • MB History, Capability, Error Analysis, CRADAs, Training

  • Future

    • Justifiable cost for benefit

    • Attribution of Nav products

    • Mobile Training Team

    • Automation/Fusion

    • Open Questions (Non-hydro depts)


Past navo multibeam history

Past - NAVO Multibeam History

  • Multibeam in use since 1967 (SASS,Seabeam,Botas)

  • In early 1990s, EM100s on T-AGS 51s

  • EM950 on ORCAs

  • In 1996, USNS Pathfinder T-AGS 60, with EM950 and EM121a did first surveys

  • EM1002s replace EM950s

  • EM3000s replaced singlebeam on HSLs

  • Reson 8101s, 8125 used by HYCOOP & FST


Past high resolution capability

Past - High Resolution Capability

  • Capability expanded with high resolution multibeams

    • Can now get “full coverage” (wrt singlebeam) that meets requirements with towed sidescan

    • Question: will MB coverage ever obviate sidescan?


Past error analysis

Past - Error Analysis

  • Multiple methods of errors analysis

    • Backward

      • Ground truthing areas to build up confidence, beam statistics

        • Michaelson Test Area (MTA), “Testin’ in Destin”, Flower Garden Banks

      • Residual analysis on grid basis

      • Cross-check analysis for field sanity checks

    • Forward

      • Error Budgets for planning (Hare TPE methods)

      • Beam-wise 95% TPE confidence values in realtime and post-time


Past software cradas

Past - Software CRADAs

  • To address the problem of “too much data” have software CRADAs

    • Based on PFM format

    • (Will eventually have GSF->PFM->BAG: collection->working->product formats)

    • Has increased throughput and saved resources

  • Still have problem of “not enough data” for most global product needs (< 10% of oceans surveyed)


Past training

Past - Training

  • Estimate 37% workforce formally trained (where the number used to be 1%)

    • NAVO was ~215/1345=16% of MBC attendees

    • Hydro currently 98% MBC-ized (of ~130)

  • Effect is decreased re-working, higher quality, lower costs

    • “good - fast - cheap”


Future justifiable cost for benefit

Future - Justifiable cost for benefit

  • “Why do you need that multibeam?”

  • “What’s your ROI for that multibeam?”

  • “Is it worth having a very expensive multibeam?”

    • Questions we must constantly answer. Need for some quantifiable metrics … perhaps.


Future attribution of nav products

Future – Attribution of Nav products

  • Not just for nautical charting

  • Working on getting the answer to “How good is your data?” as part of the product

    • PFM_CUBE -> BAG -> “products”

  • ECDIS is not just depths anymore

    • Idea in “Chart of the future”


Future automation fusion

Future - Automation/Fusion

  • Have non-traditional sources of info.

    • Lidar, Derived Bathy, other Through-the-sensor data, random data

  • How do we fuse them together?

  • Can we make this automatic?


Mobile training team

Mobile Training Team

  • NAVO’s HYCOOP provide formal customized on-the-job training to host countries

    • Potential opportunity for “Fab 4” or “Disciples” to provide assistance as expert consultants

    • POC – Stan Harvey


Open miw engineering questions

Open MIW/Engineering Questions

  • MIW Question: will multibeam ever be able to answer questions about clutter, roughness, and mine burial probability the way sidescan is used now?

  • Eng. Q: will it be possible to increase the repetition rate even for deeper sonars?
