Congratulations to all the participants who completed the latest HYPACK Multi-Beam Echo Sounder (MBES) and mobile laser scanning training course held at Swathe Services HQ in September 2018.

People came from all over the UK to attend the bi-annual training event. With surveyors from ABP Humber & Southampton, Jersey Ports, Plymouth based ECOSPAN and Canal and River Trust among the attendees

Swathe Services is the only organisation in the UK that run hands-on practical training based around the latest HYPACK/HYSWEEP software

The 5-day course covered installation, testing, calibration, operation, data gathering and processing of hydrographic survey data using HYPACK’s HYSWEEP software. Delegates got plenty of hands-on experience with MBES and vessel mounted laser Scanning data using HYPACK on the MV Tiger Lilly vessel based at Mylor Harbour near Falmouth.

Everyone who attended got a lot from the course

Delegates commented: “The course was invaluable and I learnt a lot. The size of the course was about right and my knowledge of the software and my understanding of it has greatly improved”. “The memory stick we received with the manuals, articles and slides on it has already proved extremely useful. Overall the course was extremely well run and I would recommend it.”

The course gave attendees a great way to experience HYPACK and view a particular MBES/laser scanner setup and is extremely valuable for surveyors or graduates looking to improve their knowledge and expertise.
