Streamline Surveys with SonarWiz
SonarWiz by Chesapeake Technology streamlines the survey process and simplifies the number of software programs you need to learn. It operates with almost all sonar manufacturers, so you won't need to re-familiarize yourself with different software. SonarWiz interfaces with nearly all brands of commercially available sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profilers, magnetometers, echo sounders and bathymetric interferometers. Perpetual electronic licenses or hard dongles include one year of support. We rent and lease-to-own on a weekly and monthly basis.

Real time tools allow for data analysis and survey monitoring with interfaces to most manufacturers. Processing tools allow for creation of mosaics and many options for data enhancements. Target and coverage reports, and many export options provide the tools needed for final product creation.
Explore sediment layers in-depth with real-time analog and digital data acquisition and post-processing modules. Auto reflector tracking and creation of layers provide the tools needed for full analysis. Enhance images with gains and filters to produce a clear image of the sediment below the surface.
Collect and process multibeam and Lidar data. Real time displays for all sensor data for QC monitoring. Intuitive and easy to use tools for data cleaning, including manual and automatic filtering. Patch and Performance Test, 3D views. Creation of Grids, contours, XYZ and other final products.
Collect and process magnetometer data with SonarWiz. Collected as stand alone or used in conjunction with other systems. Processing tools allow for the import of most formats, and tools for creation of new sensor format import. Auto detection of anomalies. Export to XYZ, grid and contour.
Easy to use interface for data logging and processing. Data input from single beam sensor, motion sensor and navigation devices. Swath editor for data cleaning and performance test for system analysis provide the tools needed for completing the survey work. Export to XYZ, grid and contours, and more.
SonarWiz will have

"Patrick is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He is always happy to solve a problem and I have learnt so much about the software and data through him. Awesome service every time!"
The ExxonMobil Site Investigation team is impressed that Chesapeake was able to get SonarWiz training together for us in such a short time. We're also very impressed with Patrick Zynda. It was an outstanding course, he picked up all of our extra topics and questions with no problem. We appreciate his knowledge, technical expertise, and flexibility to work with us in an outdated software version. Thank you!
