OLEX

OLEX is a powerful tool for navigation, fishing and survey use. 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.

ABOUT OLEX

Software options include:

  • 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 has no ongoing upgrade fees, upgrade costs (HDD failures excepted), or maintenance costs. Pay for the software ONCE and use it for life!

Multibeam Sonar - ATEC

OLEX have released their own new multibeam sonar.  ATEC is a 320-480Khz multibeam sonar head to be used directly with OLEX software. ATEC offers 256 beams, 80Khz bandwidth, 50HZ Ping rate, 10mm depth accuracy usable from 2-250Mtr. When used with Kongsberg MRU and 9205 GPS the systems exceeds IHO Special Order 44. Can be used with existing motion sensing such as JLR21, SC30, SC50/60 etc.

MULTIBEAM Interface

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.

OLEX WASSP Watercolumn and Seafloor

OLEX 3D view of actual seafloor and watercolumn as recorded in Norway. This image shows the 3D view of the seafloor, water column targets (in this case a tow line). This image is the typical result of a SHALLOW WATER (less than 180Mtr) survey from a compatible multibeam sounder - WASSP WMB-160F was used for this survey.

OLEX WASSP HARDNESS

OLEX 2D & 3D view of actual seafloor showing HARDNESS (backscatter) data. This image shows the 3D view of the seafloor, roughness/hardness, and also a 2D image with chart and seafloor overlayed. This image is the typical result of a WASSP + OLEX system using a FURUNO SC30 satellite compass. Hardness changes of 1% can be clearly identified, magnified, and exaggerated to show even the slightest change in seafloor density.

OLEX SINGLE BEAM HARDNESS

OLEX 2D & 3D view of actual seafloor showing HARDNESS data from a HONDEX sounder as used in Fremantle. This image shows the 3D view of the seafloor, hardness, and also a 2D image with chart and seafloor overlayed. This image is the typical result of a HE7300Di + OLEX system using a standard gps.
