QPS collaborates with R2Sonic in the Multispectral Water Column Challenge
We’re proud to announce our collaboration with R2Sonic, LLC in the Multispectral Water Column Challenge. Together with R2Sonic we’re pushing the boundaries of innovation in the hydrographic industry. QPS software packages Qinsy and Qimera have been used to collect accurate, clean data at different frequencies.
In 2017, R2Sonic launched the first R2Sonic Multispectral Challenge. Timo Gaida from Delft University of Technology was awarded the first place with his remarkable white paper. This year, R2Sonic launches the R2Sonic Multispectral Water Column Challenge. In collaboration with four universities (NAU, NSCC, USM and TU Delft) various samples of data have been collected and made available for your research. While the first challenge focused on seafloor discrimination capabilities, the purpose of this year’s challenge is to expand these capabilities to the water column.
