An Introduction to the
HTI Acoustic Tag System (Demo)



Overview:
Introduces MarkTag Software used for viewing and analyzing HTI acoustic tag data. MarkTag Software is a data marking application used to automatically or manually mark raw acoustic tag data to create TAT files (Tracked Acoustic Tags).

Topics Include:

Introduction to Basic Features
Description of Window Displays
Verifying Data from a Tag
Viewing Geo-Referenced Map/Image

How to Batch Process with MarkTag Software



Overview:
A brief tutorial on how to batch process HTI acoustic tag data using MarkTags Software. This post-processing program is used to automatically marking raw acoustic tag data to create TAT files (or Tracked Acoustic Tag files).

Topics Include:

Selection of Auto-Marking Settings
Creating/Editing Batch Files
Running a Batch Process
Reviewing Batch Results
 
Intro to Data Processing with AcousticTag Software


Overview:
Learn how to process data to automatically generate and display tag positions for fine-scale fish behavior. AcousticTag Software is an application used for data collection and post-processing 2D/3D tracking.

Topics Include:

Data File Types
Tag Positioning Settings
Tag Selection
Performing Tag Positioning
Viewing Tag Position Results
 
How to Program & Turn On an HTI Acoustic Tag (And How to Put Them Back to Sleep-Mode)


Overview:
Learn how to turn tags on when ready for use and turn off when not. Also learn how to quickly put acoustic tags back to "sleep" in order to save battery life, therefore saving tag "life" or duration.

Topics Include:
Connecting a Model 490 Programmer
Programming Acoustic Tags
Verifying Tags
Putting Tags in Sleep-Mode

How to Bench Test a Model 241
Echo Sounder



Overview:
Follow along with a scientist from HTI on how to bench test your Model 241 Echo Sounder. Portable and rugged, the Model 241 is suitable for a wide range of fisheries and oceanographic assessment applications.

Topics Include:

Connecting a DES Unit to a Computer
Opening a "Cal-tones" Bench Test Configuration
Opening View (*.vew) File
Establish Communication from Digital Echo Sounder Processor (DEP) to the Digital Echo Sounder System (DES)
Processing a Bench Test Configuration

 
How to Conduct an In-Field Calibration of a Model 241
Echo Sounder


Overview:
Calibration is vital for obtaining accurate measures with scientific-grade, hydroacoustic echo sounder systems. Calibration establishes sampling system sensitivities and performance characteristics. This knowledge provides accurate estimation of acoustic size and target strength of individually detected fish.

Follow an HTI scientist as he walks us through a simple in-field calibration set-up and test for an HTI Model 241 Echo Sounder for fisheries research.
