The MS 1000 profiler is supported in horizontal mount mode, used as a conventional multibeam. This driver does not support multiple profilers or sidescan modes. For these modes, there is a custom HYPACK driver which is beyond the scope of this document. The driver will also read heading if provided.



Via a TCP/IP network interface to the MS 1000 software which can be on the same or different computer as HYPACK.  Default port 5000.



  • the driver will record the detect sample from the imagery information as beam intensity.
  • a complete sector is logged as a single ping
  • angles which imply an inverted mount (ie 90 to 270) are rotated 180 degrees
