Olex multibeam interface

The Olex is used by several research institutes to provide a real-time view of the ships’ multibeam data. Using the Olex it is possible to collect multibeam continuously without having to store large volumes of “raw” multibeam data or have a dedicated multibeam operator. Olex provides a simple way for scientists to use the multibeam data without affecting the operation of the system.

Olex was used to interface to the James Cooks EM1002 multibeam system during an EcoMAR cruise to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Scientists were able to identify landing sites for camera work.

The Marine Institute and the Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science both have Olex machines continuously logging multibeam data from their Kongsberg sounders. This provides valuable data, that would not otherwise have been collected, at no additional cost.
