Swedish Maritime Administration selects Teledyne CARIS tools to enhance nautical charting

Fredericton, NB, CANADA, May 12, 2020 — Teledyne CARIS, a Teledyne Technologies [NYSE:TDY] company, is pleased to announce that the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) has selected Teledyne CARIS to provide tools for generalisation of bathymetric data in nautical charts.

Through a competitive tender process, SMA has chosen Teledyne CARIS to provide CARIS BASE Editor as the solution for the generalization of bathymetric data in nautical charts. The software platform will provide the tools needed to generate contours and sounding selections using automated processes as much as possible.

The addition of CARIS BASE Editor to SMA complements the existing CARIS HPD system already in place from a previous project. HPD is used for the management of spatial data and the efficient production of paper and electronic charts.

“SMA is very pleased to once again cooperate with Teledyne CARIS. We have seen what the CARIS tools can do and we expect great results moving forward,” said Marcus Hassel, System Administrator, SMA. “I would like to add that despite the current situation we are facing the world over, we were able execute the project as planned thanks to the collaboration and goodwill of everyone involved.”

"At Teledyne CARIS we are proud to continue our cooperation with the Swedish Maritime Administration,” said Peter Schwarzberg, Managing Director, Teledyne CARIS, EMEA: “Through this project we will provide SMA with our new automatic bathymetric compilation tools and, with our joined domain expertise, further optimize the production of bathymetric products including paper charts and ENCs."
