HIPS and SIPS

Built on decades of expertise and proven algorithms CARIS HIPS and SIPS is the leading hydrographic data processing system capable of integrating bathymetry, laser scanner, seafloor imagery, and water column data processing in a single application.

Description

Backed by over 25 years of excellence, the HIPS and SIPS™ suite of products offers essential capabilities and professional grade tools for hydrographic data processing. Supporting over 40 industry standard data formats, HIPS and SIPS can easily integrate into any workflow. It enables you to simultaneously process multibeam, backscatter, side scan sonar, single beam and lidar data. It incorporates the latest in 3D visualization technology for the purpose of hydrography, oceanography and marine science. As part of the Ping-to-Chart™ workflow, HIPS and SIPS can be easily expanded to meet your wider geospatial needs.

With a core philosphy of automating workflows, HIPS and SIPS continues to add new tools such as CARIS Mira AI, Process Designer, and SIPS Backscatter to provide customizable and usable automation, improving processing efficiency.
