Olex

Olex

Olex is a Norwegian system for navigation, fishery plotting and ocean mapping.  OLEX software runs on a dedicated processor unit built on UNIX technology. OLEX is able to interface to any NMEA single beam sounder, SIMRAD ES60/70 and multibeam systems, Kongsberg, and WASSP multibeam. The system will accept any NMEA sentence from GPS, Radar, AIS, Sounder, GPS, Motion sensor, Satellite Compass, Doppler Log, Sonar, etc.
OLEX can use S63 Navionics charts, CMAP CM93-3 Charts, or BSB RASTER charts.

Software options include (dependent on Modules purchased with software) :

  • 2D only version
  • 2D / 3D Display modes, Dual 2D mode, watercolumn targets (from MBES or WASSP only), Fish targets from WASSP shown in both 2D & 3D
  • AIS display of targets and depth/message transfer to other vessels
  • Hardness mapping from either NMEA or TCP/IP sources. (*Sounder must output hardness: Hondex, JRC, Roxanne, Simrad, WASSP etc)
  • Trawl monitoring in 3D in realtime from appropriate systems (SIMRAD ITI, ETC)
  • Water current Mapping from NMEA water sensor, doppler log, current indicator
  • HGPS – height based gps mapping to smooth seafloor data from single beam sounders
  • TRIPOS – vessel motion correction via satellite
  • WASSP Interface (for use with WMB160/80 & X230 systems)
  • MBES for interface to Simrad/Kongsberg Multibeam systems (Simrad EM300 etc)
  • ATEC for connection with OLEX own IHO multibeam sonar head

OLEX 3D view of actual seafloor recorded in Western Australia

OLEX 3D view of actual seafloor recorded in Western Australia. This image shows the 3D view of the seafloor which can be controlled independently of the 2D view. This image is the typical result of a DEEP WATER (in excess of 1000Mtr) survey from a compatible multibeam sounder – WASSP, KONGSBERG, SIMRAD with accurate motion compensation.
