Teledyne RD Instruments releases Velocity Software for ADCP

What is ADCP? An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP or ADP) is a sonar that attempts to produce a record of water current velocities for a range of depths. They are made of ceramic materials, and contain transducers, an amplifier, a receiver, a mixer, an oscillator, a clock, a temperature sensor, a compass, a pitch and roll sensor, and computer […]

What is ADCP? An Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP or ADP) is a sonar that attempts to produce a record of water current velocities for a range of depths. They are made of ceramic materials, and contain transducers, an amplifier, a receiver, a mixer, an oscillator, a clock, a temperature sensor, a compass, a pitch and roll sensor, and computer components to save the information collected. ADCPs can be configured in many ways: side-listening, into rivers and canals for long term continuous discharge measurements, downward-listening and mounted on boats for instantaneous surveys in the ocean or rivers, and mounted on moorings, or the seabed for long term current & wavestudies. They can stay underwater for years at a time, and have a battery back for an energy source. The sonar is used for oceanography, estuary, river and stream flow measurement, and weather forecasting. Who is Teledyne RD Instruments? Teledyne Technologies Incorporated is a leading provider of sophisticated electronic components and subsystems, instrumentation and communications products, including defense electronics, monitoring and control instrumentation for marine, environmental and industrial applications, harsh environment interconnect products, data acquisition and communications equipment for air transport and business aircraft, and components and subsystems for wireless and satellite communications. What is the big news? The release of the new Sentinel V (platform for interacting with your ADCP) is complimented by the release of the new pre-deployment Velocity Software.  Velocity software is an all-purpose, real-time planning tool with an interface simple yet powerful interface. But until the new software is released, I’m going to continue using sportsbook platform providers. Intricate 2D and 3D graphs including: • Time series graphs • Contour graphs • Profile graphs • 3D surface / contour / profile graphs The main features are:

  • Basic/conventional processing features including averaging, coordinate transforms, and velocity reference
  • Comprehensive, advanced, and fully customizable data processing engine
  • A comprehensive log of all loaded and recent data files
  • Export to multiple output formats
