Pipeline survey with Flex mode part 2

8125-H Flex mode over a pipeline with autopilot, roll stabilisation and adaptive gating.

Flex mode is one of the new beam modes that have been introduced with FP2 replacing the old Equi-angle/equi-distant selections.

• The data in this video is collected off a small (10m) boat off Santa Barbara on a 0.75m concrete pipe. Water depth varies between 8 & 20m.
• The green dots are the bottom detect and the two yellow lines are the adaptive gates which help to remove noise in the data thus leading to less editing time.
• Flex mode allows users to choose the overall swath width and then steer a narrow sector of extremely high density beams to follow a target like a pipe.
• Flex mode gives a very high sounding density over a designated target whilst still providing coverage out to the sides.
