Company Profile

The main activity of QPS, a member of the Saab group, is focused on system integration and the development of software systems that are used for hydrographic surveys, seafloor mapping, portable pilot units and ENC production. QPS is seen as a market leader in these fields. The key technology of QPS is based on precise navigation, the collection and presentation of large volumes of navigation and depth data, all in real-time. This also includes new techniques for 3D visualisation of the underwater environment.

QPS systems are used onboard offshore construction vessels, pipe-lay barges, drilling rigs, seismic research vessels and hydrographic survey vessels. QPS has a fast growing market share in the offshore oil and gas industry, dredging industry and port communities.

Qimera is an easy to use yet powerful sonar data processing application. Built using core QPS technologies, As well as QPS QINSy projects, Qimera supports the major raw sonar file formats and by working with the Dynamic Workflow™ it revolutionises the way data is handled and the operator experience when processing hydrographic data.  How? Qimera intelligently and interactively guides the operator through the data processing stages, simplifying what traditionally has been a convoluted process. Utilising the latest computing technologies, the unique IO Balanced Multi-Core engine in Qimera is specifically designed to process sonar data as rapidly as possible. Qimera also contains a number of advanced tools including Sound Velocity Profiling (refraction), Calibration (Patch Test), and a Wobble Test (for troubleshooting common sensor installation/integration  issues).

Qimera supervises a less experienced user through the stages of bathymetry processing by intelligently prompting the next necessary action(s). The Dynamic Workflow™ uniquely remembers what actions and settings have been applied to the project data, and so is able to highlight files that need  further processing actions in order to complete the workflow.

Remember, Qimera is a completely new product! Qimera is first and foremost a software platform designed to be offered stand-alone, or that can also be part of a QPS suite of tools. Qimera has the flexibility to penetrate into many markets with a variety of workflows, and Qimera is feature rich, fast, accurate and easy to use resulting in a good value proposition. Furthermore, Qimera is built to be localised for regional (local language) flexibility and User experience. Yes, Qimera does leverage some existing QPS technology, but importantly it has been built from the ground up.

In summary:

          - Qimera is easy to use and offers a guided workflow.

          - Supports QPS and most 3rd party raw sonar data formats.

          - Offers 2D/3D/4D interactive processing.

          - Supports projects with Multi-day, Multi-Vessel, Multi-MBES.

          - Is 64-Bit and fully leverages modern computing technology with it's I/O Balanced Multi-Core engine.
