QPS and Kongsberg Maritime sign MOU
QPS and Kongsberg Maritime have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enhance and deliver QPS software products, in particular the revolutionary QIMERA multibeam data processing package, to Kongsberg Maritime’s existing and future clients.
QPS’ software products have been developed to be the easiest, yet most powerful multibeam software products available. This compliments the advanced sonars that Kongsberg Maritime produces, as they are used from research to Navies to commercial use.
Kongsberg’ SIS QA sensor processing tools are seamlessly integrated inside the QPS Qimera bathymetry processing software product. QIMERA’s advanced patch test tool allows the new Kongsberg Maritime EM2040 Dual TX system to be fully calibrated. QPS products FMGeocoder Toolbox and FMMidwater fully support all Kongsberg Maritime sonars for backscatter and water column processing of shallow, deep, extra detection, multi-ping and multi-transducer systems.

Commenting on the MOU Duncan Mallace, QPS Business Development Manager said:
“Kongsberg Maritime have a very diverse client base with users that range from interns to multibeam specialists. At QPS we have developed our software to make them intuitive yet immensely capable. This will enable Kongsberg’s clients to interact with their sonars like never before and produce exceptional products quickly and at the highest quality.”
Helge Uhlen, Subsea Product Sales Manager, Kongsberg Maritime, added:
“QPS has a very good software base, which is now being extended with the introduction of the QIMERA software tool. With this latest tool box customers will be able to ensure that deliverables from an EM system with different auxiliary sensors are quality-assured. With the agreement in the MOU we have committed to make sure that software from QPS and systems from Kongsberg Maritime is working seamlessly together.”
