TRITON OFFERS LOOK INTO THE FUTURE AT Oi06

Watsonville, California, USA, April 12 , 2006Industry experts attending the recent Oceanology International conference in London got a sneak preview of some of the exciting work-in-progress at Triton Imaging.

The new Triton TAP processing software continued to demonstrate Triton's focus on increasing automation and reducing operating costs through innovation.  TAP features temporal and geographic fusion of disparate sensor data.  All files for a survey can be opened and are available for analysis and intepretation with selection of a single folder containing all sensor data; sidescan, sub-bottom, multibeam, video, digital camera, mag, etc.  The unique temporal displays of TAP show sensor data as tracks very similar to a video editing application.  By moving the selector to any point in the time line, all sensor data collected at that time is quickly displayed.  The techology under the hood that permits this quick, temporally registered, access to all sensor data is a unique caching system developed by Triton. 

The Triton Crew at Oi06

Mosaics, DTMs, and other geo-coded products are easily created in TAP's map display with the push of a single button.  Selecting a geographic point, say on an S-57 chart in TAP's map display, automatically and instantanously moves TAP's sensor data displays to the corresponding point in time when the data at that point was collected.  This blend of temporal and geographic data fusion is new in the industry and will lead to faster and more efficient processing of complex, multi-sensor data sets.
