 About Lampyrid Eye

LampyridEye8 Catalog (PDF)

LampyridEye is a software to create mosaic images from acoustic information acquired by side scan sonar.

The optimized user interfaces such as a ribbon bar and a file view improve operational efficiency. 

  • Supports various side scan data formats
  • Visible track editor
  • Various correction functions for physical data
  • Easy tools to make mosaics
  • Displays and outputs high-resolution SSS (Side Scan Sonar) images

・Color coding of tracks


     Color coding of tracks (Ship and towfish)


・Radiometric correction
Several corrections are easily executed on the screen.



・SSS images by geometric correction


                                                                           Overlaying color contour on the SSS image


 Main Features of Lampyrid Eye
 Import File Format
  • XTF, XSE, ALL, KMALL, mb41, asd, acf, hsx, scan format. 
  • Ping file (MarineDiscovery), and other formats (If you have other formats, please contact us.)
  • It reads the position information, motion information, and sensor water depth information from an external file, and corrected.
 Support SSS Model
  • SIS1600, C3D, Seabat8160, SeaBeam series, EM series
 Information sharing
 Track Correction
  • Display of track information. (ship and towfish)
  • Manual or Auto editing of track. (linear interpolation, spline interpolation)
 Quality Control
  • Browsing of data for each ping. (e.g. date and time, location, 3-axis information, altitude, water depth, gain, pixel size, etc.)
  • Graph displays of 3-axis information.
  • Various correction for each file. (e.g. level, radiometric, magnetic deviation, bathymetric distortion, etc.)
  • Batch Calculation of under water depth for each ping from image.
  • New function for cleaning noise (angle filter, add flags for noise)
 SSS Image View 
  • Geometric correction by using motion or track data.
  • Method of display image is selectable. (e.g. raw, interpolation, averaging)
  • Easy to generate mosaic images. (image display order is selectable e.g. port, starboard, and time axis respectively.)
  • Import of contour images. Overlapping of contour images created by MarineDiscovery on mosaic images is available.)
  • Display mosaic images with color. 
  • Distance measurement is available on the mosaic image. 
  • Importing color palettes files (clr of ESRI and cpt).
