DiveLOG Automated Survey Boat
DiveLog Automated Controls:
The DiveLog Automated Survey Boat or D.A.S. Boat. As its name suggests, D.A.S. Boat is controlled by Shark Marine’s field proven DiveLog software. Originally designed to create an intuitive interface for Shark Marine’s Navigator product line, DiveLog is now being used for ROV Control, Diver Delivery System Control, Survey, and Search and Recovery Computer Topsides, as well as Autonomous Surface Vessel Control.
D.A.S. Boat can be operated manually using a hand controller, or be programmed to precisely follow routes created in DiveLog. While in Autonomous mode, DiveLog sends control information from a shore station using a radio modem.
Data collected by D.A.S. Boat can be viewed realtime in DiveLog and exported for processing in programs such as Hypack, Caris, and Fledermaus, or for use in Shark Marine's Sediment Accumulation Monitor (S.A.M.) Software.
Underwater Dive Tablet
Dive Tablet is an affordable solution for anyone that requires accurate underwater positioning. Using advanced dead reckoning or GPS, Dive Tablet allows operators to map underwater habitats, document archaeological sites, take geo-referenced photos and video, or simply navigate underwater.
Dive Tablet's small size and rugged construction is a good fit for use on RHIBs and other surface vessels where it can be used for navigation, or to track and communicate with divers using the Sub-NET system.
Shark Marines DiveLOG Software provides a user friendly, intuitive interface managing all of the sensors and data, freeing the diver to focus on the dive.
The Navigator - Diver Held Sonar Imaging and Navigation System
The Need: Divers work in an environment with limited visibility making it hard to know where you are, where you are going and what is around you.
The Solution: The Navigator, allows the diver to see using sonar up to 300 meters away in zero visibility, and to not only know his location but to guide him to targets or perform grid searches over charts or satellite maps. The diver continually has a total situational awareness of the environment around him.
DiveLog Software: The heart of the Navigator, DiveLog controls everything. The greatest accomplishment here is to take everything complex and simplify the operation to produce the best results with the least effort. Then take project management and data sharing to new level of simplicity
Continual Evolution: Modular design allows the Navigator to evolve, as new sonar and other underwater technologies are developed, enhancing product sustainability.
The NAVIGATOR was designed to give a diver "eyes" in waters too turbid to see, for guidance in the dark without lights, for locating distant objects or targets, identifying them and for mapping the route to easily relocate them. The Navigator is a complete underwater computer that is capable of supporting many different sonar heads and numerous other sensors. Such items as the Shark Marine Pro-Mag, video or still cameras, GPS and a wide range of computer based sensors. Data collected from these sensors is stored on the processors internal hard drive and may be efficiently up-loaded either wirelessly or through wet-mate-able USB ports, to a regular topside computer. Video and Ethernet extensions are also available should the sonar data need to be viewed by observers on the topside, or shared with fellow divers down below. Currently in use by Navy EOD teams, SAR organizations and security personnel around the globe, the NAVIGATOR, Diver Held Sonar and Guidance System, represents the most comprehensive advancement in diver situational awareness technology to date.
One software to control everything. DiveLog allows realtime operation or playback of various sensors and sonars simultaneously in the same software
DiveLog is Shark Marine's core software. Originally made for the Navigator system, DiveLOG can now be used on desktop or laptop computers for mission planning, ROV Control, Survey Data Collection and Navigation, as well as playback/review of data and report generation.

Shark Survey Assistant
The Shark Survey Assistant (SSA) is a useful tool in a wide range of marine surveying applications. The SSA takes a GPS input and distributes that information to three separate ports can be connected to other surveying or navigation software. While conducting a survey, the SSA allows the user to log targets to a file for immediate reviewing once survey operations are complete. The information in the target list represents the most accurate location of the target, accounting for both layback and offset. When using the SSA, the layback can be manually entered by the user or can be set automatically by the input from a cable payout program.
Hypack is a software package used primarily for hydrographic surveying and data processing. Hypack performs all the tasks neccessary to complete your survey from beginning to end; Geodetic Parameters, Planned Line Design, Equipment Configuration, Data Collection supporting over 200 sensors, Data Processing, Tides and Sound Velocity, Sounding Reduction, Export to DXF/DGN, Plotting of Smooth Sheets, Volumes by Section, Volumes by Surface Model, Contouring to DXF, 3D Visualization, SideScan Collection and Proccessing, ACDP Collection and Display.
