Qimera 2

Multibeam Processing, It's that easy.

Qimera offers full sonar processing and point cloud cleaning for a wide variety of industry standard formats. Qimera is easy, and will always remain so, with rich data extraction for a streamlined, "hands off" data import and guided workflows to reduce human error and training requirements. Automation is achieved via Qimera Live, for near real-time data processing, highly customizable spline filters for rapid data cleaning, and Processing State Management to ensure the correct sequence of post -processing actions with a single-click.

Description

Qimera offers full sonar processing and point cloud cleaning for a wide variety of industry standard formats. Qimera is easy, and will always remain so, with rich data extraction for a streamlined, "hands off" data import and guided workflows to reduce human error and training requirements. Automation is achieved via Qimera Live, for near real-time data processing, highly customizable spline filters for rapid data cleaning, and Processing State Management to ensure the correct sequence of post -processing actions with a single-click. Advanced tools include the Patch Test tool and Wobble analysis to diagnose and fix any errors in the multibeam and motion sensor integration, and the Automated Sound Speed Correction to automatically correct refraction error. Additional analysis tools include Time Series Multiplots, Cross Check tool and Extinction Tests, which all work to ensure high multibeam data quality and system health. Great efficiency is gained with Cooperative Cleaning and Production Line Processing, which allow for multiple personnel to work on the same project simultaneously, and "Connected" S-57 feature management that ensures agreement between features and bathymetry. Qimera is fully compliant on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
