Qimera offers full sonar processing and point cloud cleaning for a wide variety of industry standard formats, and supports surface vessels, ROV, AUV, and ASV survey platforms. Qimera is easy, and will always remain so, with rich data extraction for a streamlined, "hands off" data import; guided workflows to reduce human error and training requirements; and intelligent processing state management that ensures the correct sequence of post-processing actions with a single click. Automation is achieved via Qimera Live, for near real-time data processing; and highly customizable filters for rapid data cleaning. Advanced analysis tools include the easy to use multibeam calibration (Patch Test) tool; time series and multiplots dynamically linked to bathymetry for rapid cross-referencing; and extinction tests to find the outer extents that a multibeam system can achieve. Advanced tools to ensure high data quality include the Wobble Analysis to diagnose and fix any errors in the multibeam and motion sensor integration; and the automated, repeatable TU Delft Sound Speed Inversion to mitigate refraction error. Advanced workflows to greatly increase efficiency include cooperative cleaning, which allows multiple personnel to work on the same project simultaneously; and "Connected" S-57 feature management that ensures agreement between features and bathymetry. Qimera offers Geocoder Toolbox as an add-on for backscatter processing and mosaicking, and Midwater for rapid water-column processing. Qimera is fully compliant on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

SIS supports .KMall, the KONGSBERG logging format used by all of our EM systems. This format makes it much easier to post-process the logged data as it contains already calculated latitude, longitude, depth, time and ellipsoidal height. With SIS comes a complete set of documentation in .html format and examples in C++ and Python showing how to read the .KMall files. Software developers find this useful as it shortens the development time considerably.


KONGSBERG has developed a Digital Ecosystem named Kognifai. Blue Insight is the solution which uses Kognifai to offer additional services in a cloud environment. Find out more

SIS 5 can send data to Blue Insight in real time, both remotely and during regular operation. Depending on the bandwidth and cost of the Internet connection, SIS 5 can be configured to send the right amount of data from the ship into Blue Insight in real time. Blue Insight is accessed through a web-browser so data can be processed and displayed anywhere on the Internet. Team collaboration and remote monitoring are now possible.


  • System configuration
    Define all lever-arms and installation angles for all sensors.
  • System calibration
    Calibrate the installation for optimal performance, if and when needed.
  • Real time Digital Terrain Model, DTM
    SIS continuously generates a DTM which can be compensated for tide effects. This gives the operator a high detailed 3D-view of the terrain as the surveys progresses. All depth points are also available in full resolution 3D display in real time.
  • System monitoring
    SIS monitors all sensor input in real time. Any faults or dropouts are immediately reported to the operator.
  • Survey planning
    The enhanched Planning module in SIS has been redesigned to allow single-click operations. This means that almost all commands can be carried out with the mouse only. Survey plans are easy to exchange between the office and the boat, or between several boats.
  • Background charts
    Both GeoTIFF files and WMTS server input can be used to display background maps in SIS.
  • Helmsman's Display
    A separate Helmsman's Display is provided. This can be show either on a second screen or on a separate computer close to the helmsman.
  • SIS Remote
    Monitor and control one or more EM™-systems from a remote location, on shore or on another ship.
  • Connect to Blue Insight
    Use Blue Insight to monitor the survey progress from all boats in near real time from anywhere on the Internet with the tools provided by Earth Analytic.
