Official release of CARIS Onboard 1.0: A Real-time Data Processing and Mapping Application

CARIS is pleased to announce its release of the highly anticipated, near real-time data processing and mapping application, CARIS Onboard™. The development of this new technology will revolutionize the way in which bathymetry and imagery data is processed.

CARIS Onboard automatically converts data as it becomes available and applies a range of pre-determined corrections, the data can then be used to generate a terrain model or mosaic. This allows for early visualization of seafloor characteristics, putting a greater emphasis on quality control and supporting an environment of improved decision making and greater efficiency. CARIS Onboard has been designed to work with survey launches, autonomous underwater vehicles and unmanned surface vehicles. CARIS Onboard is a force multiplier allowing multiple datasets to be processed quickly and consistently. With the ever-expanding volume of data being collected at higher resolutions, CARIS Onboard fits seamlessly into the Ping-to-Chart™ suite of software and reduces your product creation timeline.
