To download the update: HYPACK 2017a Mid Year Update

This update includes the updated Sub-Bottom program. The image below shows the interpretation of three distinct geological units. Note the annotation tool which shows the depth to the sea bed and the thickness (isopach) of each geological unit.

The NEXUS 800

Work continues on the NEXUS-800 LiDAR equipped UAV.  The image below is a CLOUD display of data alongside a video provided from AI Engineers, Inc. The flight was 12 minutes in length and covered 5.5 acres at 3 meters per second. In the video still image you can see the NEXUS in flight over the parking lot. Recent testing shows that the NEXUS can meet Quality Level 1 (QL1) of the USGS LiDAR Base Specification Version 1.2, dated November 2014. For more information on the NEXUS 800 specifications please review the product specification sheet.

The Data Set contained 4 million XYZ points.

The SINGLE BEAM EDITOR ( 64 bit ) was updated as well to support the SONTEK Hydro Surveyor. This update allows the user to see current vectors and export the vectors as an image or as a DXF output. Another added feature was the ability to save the velocities out to an XYZ file with the velocity as the depth allowing you to bring it into the TIN MODEL program to create contours.

If you have any questions or problems downloading the software please contact the Technical Support team at Help@HYPACK.Com or by phone at (860) 635 - 1500.
