Original versionThis report is not to be cited without prior reference to the author
The design of a new echo integrator system is outlined. The B.E.I. is based on preprocessed data from the new SIMRAD EK500 scientific acoustic measurement system. Raw data are displayed and interpreted on a graphics workstation by means of a specially designed man-machine interface. Principles guiding the design are that the software be machine-independent and be based on internationally approved standards, e.g., UNIX, C, X-Windows, SQL database, GKS. The realization of this and the first sea trials are described. The potential for future developments is discussed.
