SEADP version 2.6 includes significant enhancements to the Automatic Detection Engine based on customer feedback.

SEADP now includes two software modes for users to choose between:

* Mode 1: Specialized size-based mode that is optimized for either objects less than or equal to 1m, or to objects larger than 1m. Selecting a size-based mode results in improved detections and measurements for the chosen size compared to mode 2.

* Mode 2: Generic software mode with no specific size selected. This mode will detect objects of all sizes but may detect fewer, smaller objects that are less than 1m in size compared to mode 1.

With recent improvements, the SEADP automatic detection algorithm is now able to detect 5,000 boulders in 5km of data within 5 minutes.

SEADP 2.6 is compatible with Survey Engine versions 6.6 and above.

Survey Engine software suite is Coda Octopus’ sidescan and sub-bottom post-processing, interpretation, QC and reporting package. The hydrographic survey specialist company has automated a number of its interpretation processes including Automatic Boulder Detection and Seabed Classification to deliver reduced interpretation times on data sets.
