We are very excited to announce this new (patent pending) capability of the Omniscan 450 FS imaging sonar. In addition to long range and high resolution imaging, Omniscan can now do motion tracking and position hold.
Check out the blog post. You’ll see a live embedded version of SonarView replaying an actual Omniscan log file taken on a BlueROV2 five meters below the surface with no GPS, no USBL, and no DVL!
Wow - someone has been working back late at Cerulean. Have been occupied with other projects so haven’t had a chance to use my BlueROV mounted Omniscan in the wild yet. Tests in the pool showed everything installed correctly and functioning as expected at shallow (and highly reflective) depths.
Only have a single 450 FS but keen to try this out, particularly the position hold feature - amazing!
Actually meant to ask is there some optimal screen dimension for resizing the SonarView window? Found that the SonarView image itself didn’t scale well when changing the window from full screen. Wanted to superimpose a smaller version the SonarView window over a background of the BlueROV video in QGroundControl but the image then only fills a fraction of the SonarView window when resizing. From memory I think this was in 3D mode.
