Unmatched capabilities at affordable prices for hydrographic surveys

The NaviSuite Kuda software is dedicated to USV- and vessel-based hydrographic surveys, offering you all the necessary tools to carry out cost- and time-efficient bathymetric survey operations. With a variety of variants of this software bundle available, you can pick the one best tailored to your needs and budget. 

The software provides high-performing features focusing on simplicity, automation and autonomy, while also enabling you to carry out remote operations

Depending on the variant, these features can include automatic generation of runlines; vessel/USV autopilot control; registration of objects/observations of interest; automatic data cleaning during acquisition and post-processing; volume and difference calculation; as well as automatic, remote/onboard data processing. The end-result is extensive deliverables and visualisations with high-quality bathymetric data.

The NaviSuite Kuda software bundle includes four variants. The NaviSuite Kuda Pro variant is dedicated to large setup with larger vessel(s) and more complex survey spreads and allows for…

  • Navigation, survey planning as well as data acquisition with all relevant types of hydrographic survey equipment, such as multi-beam echo sounders (incl backscatter), LiDARs, cameras sidescan sonars, sub-bottom profilers and magnetometers
  • Unlimited local and remote displays 
  • The possibility of tracking one subsea object
