1.1
Introduction
Purpose of this Installation Manual
This installation manual describes the procedures to install the following WASSP equipment:
►►
►►
►►
A WMB-X230 BTxR.
A WASSP Ltd supplied processing unit (WASSP Processor).
The WMB-X230 software onto the WASSP Processor.
It also provides procedures to commission the WMB-X230 system during dockside and sea trials.
1.2
Introducing the WASSP Sonar System
The WMB-X230 is a multi-beam sonar system that uses a wide-angle sonar transducer to profile the
water column and seafloor to a high resolution. It is this unique combination of multi-beam sonar and
computer processing power which provides you with unparalleled information about the underwater
environment. It gives you a wide 120° port-starboard swath of the water column and seafloor, allowing
you to find and position reefs and wrecks, fish schools, seafloor hardness changes, and foreign objects
in the water column or on the seafloor. From the 120° swath, the system processes 112 dynamic
beams, with each beam containing detections from the water column and seafloor.
The information is presented in a user-friendly, mouse controlled, Windows-based operating system.
The intuitive graphical user interface displays both acoustic views and charting views for complete
knowledge of the world beneath with the ability to view both real-time and previously recorded maps
from any part of the globe in 2D and 3D. Depth and backscatter colours can be dynamically changed
while viewing. The system can output data to plotting software packages. For optimal performance,
roll, heave, pitch, heading and position inputs are all required.
The WMB-X230 can be applied to a variety of fishing methods, as well as search and rescue, customs,
and police applications.
1.3
Main Features
The WMB-X230 has the following main features:
►►
►►
►►
►►
►►
►►
►►
Improved performance.
The use of separate transmit and receive arrays has enabled WASSP to optimise both transmit
performance and receive sensitivity, giving improved performance over traditional sonar and
sounders.
High detail picture of marine environment.
The transmit beam spreads over a 120° port-starboard swath and covers 4° fore-aft while the receive
beam covers 10° fore-aft, displaying a highly detailed picture of the marine environment.
Real-time map generation.
Generate new maps in real-time from bottom detections.
Beam stabilisation.
Beam stabilisation compensates for the movement of the vessel, providing accurate seafloor
profiles and fish school locations.
Variable beam width.
Unique to the WMB-X230 the single beam view can not only be stabilised, but the beam width
can be varied from 5° to 40°.
Triple beam view.
With variable width and angle, the port, centre, and starboard beams display together to help
build your understanding of the sea environment.
Navionics chart overlay.
The charting displays can draw a vector Navionics hydrographic chart overlaid on the WASSP seafloor
data. The displayed chart features can be turned on or off as required. Maps are available from

Navionics to cover almost every part of the world.
Bottom lock.
Bottom lock provides a traditional bottom lock mode where the changes in bottom depth are
ignored and the bottom is drawn flat. Fish and other echoes are shown relative to the flat bottom
image, enabling better discrimination between bottom fish and the seafloor.
Computer based profile storage.
A computer-based system means the WMB-X230 can generate and store very detailed seafloor
profiles.
Map resolution based on depth.
Your WASSP system dynamically changes the resolution of the stored maps to suit the depth of the
seafloor. Shallow seafloor data is stored at resolutions as high as 250mm to give the maximum detail
available, while deep seafloors have their resolution restricted to 4m to avoid saving spurious fine
detail.
Database management.
The WASSP system uses one or more databases for storing and displaying WASSP data including the
depth, backscatter and water column information. Additional databases can be created at any time
and incoming data can be assigned to any database. Unnecessarily large databases can be downsized to save recording space.
Digital signal processing (DSP).
Using DSP technology, the WMB-X230 can provide an indication of changes in seafloor hardness,
ideal for scalloping, crayfishing, and trawling where you want to understand and locate small
changes on the seafloor.
160 kHz operating frequency (WMB-3230).
Operating at a frequency of 160 kHz provides high seafloor definition at depths down to 200m.
80 kHz operating frequency (WMB-5230).
This frequency provides performance down to 500m with a slight reduction in the shallow water
< 60m performance.
Depth and seafloor coverage.
Seafloor coverage is determined by the beamwidth in use: For a 90 degree beamwidth, the
seafloor coverage will be approximately twice the water depth. For example, 100m depth gives
200m seafloor coverage with 112 beams - every ping. For a 120 degree beamwidth, the seafloor
coverage is 3.4 x depth. For example 200m depth gives approximately 680m seafloor coverage.
Unique power management system (14 power levels).
14 power levels provide optimal performance over a wide range of seafloor types and water
depths.
More accurate seafloor - faster.
Profiles 90 times faster than conventional single beam echo sounders, leading to reduced costs
and improved accuracy.
Future proof technology.
The computer based operating system and BTxR firmware are both upgradeable as new software
features are developed.

WASSP System Interconnection Diagram
Transducer
Transducer Type
The WASSP system uses a transducer intended to be either pole mounted or flush mounted inside
the hull through a suitable opening to allow the bottom face of the transducer to be in contact with
the sea water.
The transducer is a rectangular-shaped, low-profile transducer for through-hull mounting, encased in
a sealed sea chest made to suit the vessel’s hull dead rise angle. The transducer is best suited to steel
and aluminium hulls.
A sea chest for housing and sealing the transducer should be designed and constructed by a reputable
shipyard to suit the size and contours of the hull of each individual vessel. This must be sized and
constructed accurately.
The sea chest provides a stable platform for the transducer and must be mounted as horizontal to
the vessel’s waterline as possible. An optional gland supplied by WASSP Ltd. in alloy, plastic, or steel,
provides the transducer cable through-hull seal.
The transducer is supplied standard with a 10m cable. Different cable lengths are available. Please ask
your WASSP representative for details.

3.4
General Considerations
The transducer is mounted on the hull below the water line, normally using a permanent sea chest.
The transducer must be mounted so that it is aligned with the fore-aft axis of the vessel. It must also
be mounted so that the flat underside of the transducer is as close to horizontal as possible.
If the vessel has a keel, the transducer can be mounted somewhere along the length of it. If it is
mounted on the hull, it should be far enough away from the keel so that the keel will not be detected
within the 120° beam angle. Figure 6 on page 8 shows a sea chest type through-hull mounting
designed specifically for a fast moving, alloy hull crayfish boat.
The performance of the system is directly related to the mounting location of the transducer, especially
for high-speed cruising. The installation should be planned in advance, keeping in mind the fixed cable
length of your transducer (5m / 10m / 20m) and the following factors:
►►
►►
►►
►►
►►
►►
Air bubbles and turbulence caused by movement of the vessel seriously degrade the sounding
capability of the transducer. The transducer should be located in a position with the smoothest
water flow.
The transducer should not be mounted close to propellers because noise from propellers can
adversely affect the performance of the transducer.
Mount the transducer inboard of lifting strakes as these create acoustic noise.
The transducer must always remain submerged, even when the boat is rolling, pitching or
planing at high speed.
A practical choice would be somewhere between a 1/3 and a 1/2 of the boat’s length from the
stern. For planing hulls, a practical location is generally towards the rear of the vessel, to ensure
that the transducer is always submerged, regardless of the planing angle.
Do not mount another transducer near the WASSP transducer as it will interfere with the 120°
beam.
Planing hulls
On planing hulls the transducer obviously needs to be mounted in or on the aft part of the hull, which
stays in the water when the vessel is on the plane.
The transducer can be mounted either in a streamlined housing or blister on the hull or inside the hull
in a specially prepared cofferdam, with the transducer face flush with the hull and faired to the hull
shape.
It is important that the part of the hull in front of the transducer is smooth and has no hull penetrations
or attachments of any kind.
Displacement hulls
A practical choice is somewhere in the area between a 1/3 and a 1/2 of the vessel’s length, from the bow.
The transducer should be mounted in a housing or blister attached to the hull.
The disturbed aerated water tends to be in a layer against the hull, it’s thickness varies by vessel’s
speed and sea conditions. Therefore the deeper the housing is, i.e. the further the transducer is away
from the hull, the better the equipment will perform. Also on V-shaped hulls the housing should be
mounted against or close to the keel, again to get deeper and away from aeration and turbulence. The
120 degree athwart ship pattern must be kept in mind when mounting the transducer. No part of the
keel or hull should protrude into this pattern.

Transducer
Larger displacement hulls with bow thruster
The best location on these vessels is in or against the keel, forward of a line just aft of the thruster
cavity. Locations further aft are becoming heavily affected by aeration when the vessel pitches and air
exhausts out of the thruster tunnel on the downward movement of the bow. This air creates havoc
with the performance of any transducers further aft on the hull. Figure 9 suggest mounting locations
for these types of vessels.
In these installations, the strength of the mounting becomes very important, as the transducer can be
out of the water when the vessel pitches. Re-entry into the water exerts large forces on the transducer
face and the mounting structure.
See “APPENDIX C - 80kHz Transducer Mounting (WMB-5230)” sheets 1 to 3 from page 68 for the
detailed mounting instructions. These steps must be carried out accurately and completely.

See “Figure 11. Mounting the Gland Assembly” and “Figure 12. Gland Assembly - Cable Connectors”.
In the external sea chest and fairing type installations, the cable gland forms a seal where the transducer
cable passes through the hull. In low profile sea chest installations, the gland passes through the sea chest
cover.
The gland pipe and a single gasket are the only parts of the gland that are located inside the sea chest or
outside the hull, all other parts are attached to the gland pipe inside the vessel.
Gland Mounting Instructions
Depending on the type of installation, there are various ways of mounting the cable gland to the hull.
The following example describes how to mount the gland through the hull and then feed the cable
through the gland. Adapt the following procedure to suit your installation while taking the following
into consideration:
►►
►►
►►
►►

Always use a good quality marine sealant to seal across areas that can leak.
When installing the gland packing ring, apply soapy water to the inside of the packing ring and pass
it over the transducer cable until it is sitting on top of the gland pipe. The soapy water allows the
packing ring to slide easily down the cable. When sitting on top of the gland pipe, clean as much
of the soapy water off as possible to ensure the packing ring grips the cable when pressure is
applied by the gland nut.
Tighten the gland nut by hand until secure. With the vessel in the water, check for leaks at the
gland and if leaking slightly, tighten the gland nut with a spanner until the leak stops.
When all leaks are stopped, tighten the gland lock nut against the gland nut.

3.5.2 Transducer cable Installation
The transducer cable consists of seven CAT-5 cables and one screened
pair for the transmit connection.
To fit the RJ-45 connectors and cable through the gland, no special
preparation is required.
The BTxR cable end has the RJ-45 connectors fitted with “staggered”
cable lengths. This allows each RJ-45 connector and its associated
cable to be fed through the gland fitting easily.
Commencing with the black RJ-45 cable and black transmit cable,
feed each cable in turn through the gland, finishing off with the grey
RJ-45 connector and cable.
Complete fitting and tightening the gland as shown in Figure 11.
Note colour code for transmit cable
conductors: White, Black and Green.
DO NOT STRAIN THE TRANSDUCER CABLE!
Forcing the cable to bend, twist, or stretch
beyond its means will damage the transducer
and impair performance.
Once the transducer has been installed,
ensure that the transducer cable is not under
tension. Use cable ties (or similar) to secure
the cable as necessary.

Technician Utilities
The Technician Utilities form part of the Utility Panel. The advanced set up operations are only accessible
when a technician’s dongle is connected to the WASSP Processor and should only be performed by a
trained technician.
The advanced set up options do not help the system operator to use the system. Any changes made to
the options are more likely to hinder operation. They are mainly available to allow advanced diagnosis
of the system and to help troubleshooting any problems it may have.
These functions can adversely affect the performance of the
WMB-X230 system. Read this section carefully as any changes
you make may not be recoverable.
1)
Click the Utility Panel button.
The Utility Panel opens.
2)
Click the Technician icon.
This opens the Technician Utility box.
3)
Click Options to open the Advanced Technician Options.
Click BTXR Options to open the BTxR Options.
7.6.1 Advanced Technician Options
By default, the advanced technician options are pre-configured to optimal settings. Caution is advised
as changing these options can drastically affect the performance of the WMB-X230 system.
The Beam Forming and Data Decimation dialogue boxes provide a list of the default values to enable
a technician to return the system back to its factory settings if it becomes necessary. The default
values are:
•• Apply Software TVG:
On (if Transducer Number > 199)
•• Depth for 2:
20 (160kHz) or 60 (80kHz)
•• Depth for 4:
40 (160kHz) or 120 (80kHz)
•• Surface Detection Limit:
5.0
The remaining data values shown in the Advanced Technician Options box are for information only and
cannot be modified.

7.6.2 BTXR Options Box
The BTXR Options box provides the installing technician with a number of additional diagnostic tools
to help with troubleshooting installation problems.
Preprocessing will always default to on. This is the application of the calibration parameters to the
Sonar Data.
DC Correction is required for all new BTxR receivers. This function should not cause problems with
older style BTxRs so in general it should be on. The effects of not having this on when it should be are
multiple torch lights of noise appearing down the sonar display.
Request Calibration forces the BTxR to perform a new calibration routine
Ping Parameters reloads the BTxR with the default set of ping parameters.
Request Version provides a read-out of the current WASSP Software, Firmware and Hardware versions.
Engineer - This option should not be used. Do not make any changes to any of the parameters in this
box.
7.7
Advanced Options
The Advanced Options will need to be changed during the Commissioning. These are accessed
through the Utility Panel.
►►
Minimisation (Default: 4000)
Minimisation describes the filtering process used to hide side lobe signals. Side lobe generated signals show
up as a ring on the sonar when a strong signal is received e.g. the seafloor. See “Sea Trial - Commissioning
Step 10: Side Lobe Levels” on page 49.
►►
Clutter (Default: 0)
Clutter describes the filtering process used to remove all signals below a certain amplitude on the sonar and
fish finder displays. Set to zero for “Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 10: Side Lobe Levels”.
►►
Beam width Reduction (Default: 10, 10 [99 degrees])
Reduce the beam width to improve the quality of the sea-floor maps if the outer beams show errors due to
water refraction problems or shading of the transmitter beam pattern by the ships keel.
►►
Interference Filter (Default: disabled)
The Interference Filter enables reduction in interference caused by other acoustic devices such as sounders.
It also provides some noise filtering. It is recommended that the interference filter be left selected (ON) on
if you have another sounder or sonar on your vessel that operates at the same time as the WMB-X230. Best
results are achieved if all other sounders are turned off.
Set the Interference Filter Level to High when encountering strong interference, and Low when the interference is weak. Disable this function for Commissioning Steps 1-5.
►►
Aeration Filter (Default: disabled)
This function is used to reduce the effects of strong signals which appear on only part of the receiver array.
Air bubbles, sudden impacts and some other sources of noise can be suppressed using this function. Disable this function for Commissioning Steps 1-5.
►►
Noise Filter (Default: disabled)
This function is designed to remove low level electrical noise early on in the processing pipeline. This
function is very effective if used in conjunction with the Aeration Filter (even when the Aeration filter is on
the lowest setting) for removing unwanted signals. Enable only if interference issues are present. Keep this
function disabled for Commissioning Steps 1-5.

Tx Pulse Blanking (Default: disabled)
This will remove noise which is constant across the sonar display, such as transmit pulses from other acoustic sounder equipment. Works just with the sonar display and single beam display.
It is best to start the slider from the right hand side and move to the left until you see less interfering pulses
on the sonar display.
This filter will also remove bottom detections which intersect with interfering pulses.
►►
Single Beam IF (Default: OFF)
This is a filter just for the single beam display.
It will remove interfering pulses from the sonar
data.
NOTE: this will leave holes where these pulses
occurred.
LOW = remove large pulses
MED = remove large & medium pulses
HIGH = remove large, medium and small pulses

Commissioning
Commissioning should be performed by a trained WASSP technician immediately after installation of
the system.
The commissioning procedures are designed to be carried out in sequential order. If a test fails, fix
the system until that test can be completed satisfactorily before continuing. Failure to do this may
invalidate the commissioning procedure. Commissioning procedures are divided into two sets:
►►
►►
Dockside Tests
Sea Trials
For all commissioning steps, the WASSP software needs to be running. See “5.4 Using the WMB-X230
Software” on page 26.
Once the software is running, do the following before proceeding with the commissioning:
1
Open the System Configuration from the Utility
Panel.
2
Click the Ship Setup tab and then the General subtab.

36
Fill out the Vessel Information.
This allows data collected on this vessel to be clearly

8.1
Dockside Tests
The first part of the commissioning procedures requires a number of dockside tests to confirm that
the WASSP system is installed and operating correctly, before actually taking to sea.
8.1.1 Commissioning Step 1: Ship Measurements
Take measurements on the vessel between the vessel’s reference point, the GPS antenna, and the
transducer’s receiver face. These measurements must be as accurate as possible. See “Figure 27. Ship
Measurements Diagram” on page 38.
The accuracy of these measurements has a direct effect on the accuracy of depth soundings. Enter
these values in the spaces below, and on the Offset sub-tab of the Ship Setup tab in the System
Configuration (see below).
Note: The Ship’s Reference Point is an arbitrary point close to the ship’s centre of Pitch and Roll. It pays to make this
point easy to measure to for improved accuracy of measurements. A good guideline for a reference point is a point
near the water line in the centre of the ship (port to starboard) and half way down the length of the ship.

1
Start the BTxR and run the WMB-X230 program.

With the BTxR ON, configured and connected
correctly, the system should now be ready to
acquire data.

the Main Menu, set the Power Level to manual and
set to level 01.
Double-click on the power level indicator to
switch between automatic power and manual
power.

4
Click the Mode button to begin pinging.
On the Main Menu, set the Range Control Dial to
Manual. Set the range to show the seafloor.
Double-click on the range indicator to switch
between automatic range and manual range.
5
Open the I/Q Bars from the Utility Panel.
The IQ Bars window is used to diagnose issues with
the transducer and wiring. Major problems with any
of the receiver channels should be easy to spot
using this facility.
As the data comes in throughout the duration of a
ping, the display instantly updates. The I channel
is displayed in RED, the Q channel is displayed in
GREEN, and the Magnitude is displayed in BLUE.
The letters along the bottom are directly linked to
the respective 26 channels on the receiver board
and the transducer elements. The slider bar to the
right of the bars controls the gain of the display.
6
Use the slider bar on the side of the window to
adjust the bars so that they fill about a third of the
window height. Ensure there are no extreme (more
than 200%) changes in signal strength across the
channels. The display should update regularly and
the values should fluctuate.
If one or more bars are full ON or full OFF there is a
problem that you need to resolve before continuing.
See Figure 28, Figure 29
and Figure 30 for
IQ Bar examples.
The source of problems identified in this test is
most likely to be found in the connections from
the transducer cable into the BTxR receiver board.
If a wire/connector is loose or has lost some of its
insulation, you will likely see a blank or very high
channel.

Open the Raw Signal Data window from the Utility
Panel.
Select the IQ Raw Data tab.
This tab shows a voltage graph of signals received
over a single ping. By clicking and dragging across
the display, you can zoom in to see more detail, or
increase the gain slider if the signal is too low.
Adjust the gain and range of the graph so that the
graph’s peak signal only just fits on the axis. The
graph should have a small ripple at the beginning
followed by a relatively blank period and then a
strong pulse with a rippling tail. This strong pulse is
the return from the seafloor.
Figure 31 shows a regular transmission pulse with
a typically shaped bottom return. When functioning
correctly, all 26 channels should display very similar
information to each other.
4
Use the Channel selection box to view channels
A to Z. Check that all of the channels have similar
shaped waveforms on them.
If any have non-random noise, significant DC offsets
or are without the correct general shape, resolve
these problems electrically (check connections).

8.1.4 Commissioning Step 4: Array Geometry
Depending on the depth in the dock, it may be necessary to start the seatrial before this test can be
completed fully. However, overt problems should be able to be seen even with only 1m of water
beneath the transducer.
The transducer number should have been entered in the General sub-tab of the Ship Setup tab in
the System Configuration by this stage. If you are unsure of your transducer number, try ‘1’ or ‘200’.
These two numbers will give different responses, as they relate to two different series of transducer
builds, and inputting the incorrect value will result in a strange mirror effect (see Figure 32 below).
Note: In very shallow water it may help to
increase the minimisation to 5000. This will
suppress problems caused by too much power.
Correct Transducer Number
Incorrect Transducer Number
8 metres deep sloped seafloor with pier pole
adjacent to the transducer.
Incorrect transducer number makes the seafloor

With incorrect transducer number the flat seafloor
becomes impossibly deep chasm that always
follows the ship.

Open the Sonar Display menu.
Open the Config menu, and ensure Normalise is
inactive / disabled.
Open the Advanced Options from the Utility Panel.
Set the Clutter to zero (0) and Disable all filters.
Check the centre line of the Sonar display for a
consistent signal or a consistent pulse down a radial
line.
If present, this is evidence of noise signals common
to all channels. If this noise can be clearly seen as
more than a faint blue-white vertical line on the
display, it is likely that all of the receiver channels are
picking up electrical noise. If the display is relatively
clean, move on to the next test.
See Figure 33, Figure 34
and Figure 35.
The most likely cause of noise problems is incorrect
termination of the transducer cable grounding and
screening. Ensure a low gauge grounding wire is
attached to a solid ground which is common to the
power supply ground.

3
Select the charting 2D display with the Charting
Layout button on the Main Menu.
Enable Centre on Vessel.
A small boat icon in the centre of the 2D display will
show a white heading line.
Check that this line is stable, and that it is true to
the ship‘s heading.
If the indicated heading is jumping around even
though the ship is not moving, ensure TMG is
not selected as the Heading device, as this is not
appropriate for mapping.
4
If you are using a the HDG sentence for heading,
apply any applicable magnetic Heading Offset
under the Sensor sub-tab of the Ship Setup tab in
System Configuration.
The Heading Offset can also be used to correct for
alignment problems between the transducer and
the heading source. Refining this offset is a complex
process and requires good position accuracy (DGPS
or better).
8.1.7 Commissioning Step 7: Tide Configuration
The Tides tab under the System Configuration can be used to view current tide offsets. Tide correction
is enabled by default. Tide calculation requires Position and Time - if this information is not present as
inputs to the Transfer Task, the entire Tides page will be blank.
Check that the Current Time reads as the current local time. If not, enter the local time difference
in hours (from Coordinated Universal Time UTC) into the Local Time difference field to update the
Current Time and Next Tide times to local time.
If you are using your WASSP system on a lake, or any other place unaffected by tidal movement, tides
should be disabled. Check the Disable Tides box to do this.

Sea Trial
The second part of the commissioning procedure requires taking the vessel on a short sea trial. This
requires the vessel to leave the dock and perform some basic manoeuvres. The deeper the water the
more accurate the tests can be. Ideally, this would be at least 20 metres of water.
8.2.1 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 8: Array Polarity

While the system is pinging, determine whether or
not the right-hand side of the Sonar display shows
topography located on the starboard side of the
vessel (or vice-versa with the port side).
If you are unsure of the nature of the seafloor,
or only have a flat seafloor nearby, you will need
to find a seafloor feature such as a rock, bank, or
sloped seafloor.
Use the 2D charting display to navigate and pass
near the feature in opposite directions.

Once the second run has been completed, the
Patch Test window will calculate a Roll Value from
the data that was collected.
In addition to the result itself, the Patch Test also gives a confidence score (as a percentage)
given the conditions and ability of the test to determine a good roll correction value from
the acquired data. Validity percentages over 80% are recommended. If you are unable to
achieve a result over 80%, this may indicate an issue with previous commissioning steps.
If you are satisfied with the roll correction value determined by the automated patch test,
click on ‘Use This Result’ to apply the correction.
8.2.5 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 12: Sound Speed
Sound speed varies with temperature so this changes throughout the year. Use a temperature sensor
to set the sound speed if possible. Otherwise, the operator should become familiar with this process
themselves and adjust on a regular (at least monthly) basis as necessary.

8.2.6 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 13: Beam Width Validation
The usable beam width of the swath may be limited due to low temperatures, turbulent flow, aeration,
high sea state, quick temperature fluctuations or shading of the transducer.
Additionally, perhaps none of these factors has an effect on your WASSP system and you may find the
default beamwidth reduction excessive.
The aim of this commissioning step is to validate the usable beam width of the system. This parameter
is likely to change over different environments, so the operator should know how to modify this if
required.
Note: The beam width is reduced by 10 beams on either side of the swath by default.
This should be sufficient under most scenarios. However, you may find that this
default reduction in the beam width is too much, and wish to increase the beam width.
Beam width has no effect on water column detections (i.e. fish marks), as these
detections occur over the full beam width.
Make the following observation before carrying out a beam width reduction:
►►
►►
Watch the outer edges of the Sonar acoustic display carefully with the Seafloor Line enabled.
If the outside edges of the seafloor line appear to vary much more than the area immediately
adjacent, consider reducing the beam width.
These variances can be seen as frilly edges at the side of the swath on the 3D charting display
and as perpetually weak echoes on the outer beams on the Sonar display. Failure to reduce the
beam width will introduce false data on the outer edges into the backscatter and depth maps.
To change the beam width:
1
2
Open the Utility Panel from the Main Menu.
Click on Advanced Options.
Modify the beam width to a value suitable for your
application.
Area where physical beam width is
narrower than 120 degrees. This causes
the mapping of the outer edges to be
error prone and erratic.
Good Area
Care must be taken to not confuse this
with a motion artifact, or a sound speed
artifact.
Figure 42. Frilly edges showing on 3D charting view reduce the beam width to eliminate this problem.

8.2.7 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 14 : GPS Time Delay (Required)
Most GPS sources used in conjunction with WASSP will have a significant delay between when the
ship passes through a position and that position is sent on the serial port. This delay may be in the
order of 1 second. At 10 knots, this will result in an object moving 10 metres if passed in opposite
directions at this speed.
This delay is about 1.0 seconds for an SC30, and about 1.2 seconds for an SC50.
To calculate the GPS Time Delay, follow either of the following steps, dependant on your hardware:
8.2.7.1Test 1: For use with a standard GPS
1
2
Find a distinct feature on the seafloor.
e.g. a big rock, a sharp slope or a cable.
Open the System Configuration from the Utility
Panel.
Open the Ship Setup tab, then the Sensor sub-tab.
3
4
Set the GPS Time Delay to 0 seconds.
Create a new database (see “6.9 Database Manager”
on page 41 of the WMB-X230 Operator Manual).
Select it so it becomes the Current Recording
Database.
5
Run over the distinct object at a constant, quick
SOG (e.g. 8kts).
6
Start a 2nd new database, run back over object in
the opposite direction to the first pass, same SOG
(eg. 8kts).
7
Use the measure tool (see “Add Measure” on
page 28 of the WMB-X230 Operator Manual)
to measure the difference between the object’s
position in the direction the vessel travelled.
If the second run brings the object forward towards
the vessel on the second pass (i.e. the object appears
earlier than you expect), then the required GPS Time
Delay value is positive. This should happen, as the
GPS Time Delay during the test should be 0.
First Pass - Vessel Direction
If the second run pushes the object backwards on
the second run (i.e. the object appears after you
expect), then the required GPS Time Delay value
is negative. This will only happen if the GPS Time
Delay was set to a positive value during testing.
Second Pass - Vessel Direction

8
Calculate the GPS Time Delay value from this formula:
Input the result into the GPS Time Delay field.
8.2.7.2Test 2: For use with DGPS
The advantage of this approach over the previous test is it will eliminate pitch errors, however, the
displacement of the object will be smaller and this will be difficult to measure accurately as GPS errors
can make this impossible.
Perform the same steps as Test 1, with the following differences:
5
Run over the distinct object - at a speed as close to
0 as possible.
6
Start a 2nd new database, run back over object in
the SAME direction as the first pass, at the fastest
mapping speed.
8
Calculate the GPS Time Delay value from this formula:
Input the result into the GPS Time Delay field.
8.2.8 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 15 : Setting Sidescan Gain Limit
1
Open the Sidescan Gain control from the Sidescan
acoustic display menu.
2
Adjust the Sidescan Gain and Sidescan Gain
Threshold to a level that shows good seafloor
definition.
The Sidescan Gain control can be varied at any time.
Changing the Sidescan Gain Threshold will cause a big step
in the Sidescan and the old data will not be reprocessed to
conform to this gain change. Suggested values are 60-90.

8.2.9 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 17: Additional Patch Tests (Optional)
The following patch tests are optional.
8.2.9.1Backscatter (v1.2 and later)
Requires:
►►
►►
►►
►►
10-50m depth
Flat seafloor
Consistent seafloor type
Calm conditions
For this patch test, the WASSP system will acquire 256 sets of pings from which it will determine
normalised backscatter signals. Thus, it is important that the seafloor type you perform the patch test
over is consistent, without variation. This test has been automated and the software will calculate the
values for backscatter correction and store these values.
1
2
3
Find a straight, clear area of water, at least 200m
long. The seafloor below must be flat, and have a
consistent seafloor type.
If backscatter calibration is required for all beams,
set the Mapping Beamwidth to 120° (see section
“8.2.6 Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 13: Beam
Width Validation” on page 54 for instruction on
how to achieve this).
Open the Utility Panel, then System Configuration.
Click the Ship Setup tab, then select the Sensor subtab.
Under Patch Test Settings, click on ‘Open Test
Selection’, and select ‘Backscatter’.
If Backscatter is unavailable, you will need to change
the Backscatter setting on the System Tab under
System Configuration to v1.2. See section “7.1.4
System” on page 46 of the Operator Manual for
further information.
4
5
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Once complete, the Patch Test will apply the
corrected backscatter, and the change will be
immediately visible on the charting backscatter
display.
If you are satisfied with the applied backscatter
correction determined by the automated patch test,
click on ‘Use This Result’ to apply the correction.
The patch test can be easily re-done if the test result
is not satisfactory.
6
Optional: Revert the Mapping Beamwidth setting to
the previous setting.

8.2.9.2Pitch Correction (Optional)
Vessel Direction
Requires:
►►
►►
►►
►►
40m+ depth
Distinct Object
DGPS or better
Accurate Time Lag
α
Once the Time Lag is accurately ascertained using the variable speed
method described in the previous commissioning step, a Pitch Offset
correction can be ascertained by having the ship travel over a distinct
object in opposite directions. The object will move if the Pitch Offset
is incorrect, and use of trigonometry will determine the Pitch Offset
between the Motion Sensor and the Transducer. Enter this number into
the Pitch Offset on the Sensor Values Tab.
The WMB-X230 system does not have provision for variance in the Motion
Time Lag from the default values shown in the Sensor sub-tab at this time.
Z
d/2
d = distance object moves
Z = depth
α = pitch offset
(-ve pitch offset if object
moves ahead of vessel)
8.2.9.3Heading Correction (Optional)
Requires:
►►
►►
►►
40m+ depth
Distinct Object
DGPS or better
A note on heading correction was included in “Commissioning Step 6: Heading Check” on page 45.
To determine a more accurate heading correction between the heading sensor and the transducer
orientation we need high accuracy position sensors and corrected seafloor data. Approach a small
distinct seafloor feature so that the port side of the swath covers the object. Next pass over the object
so that the port side of the swath crosses the same object in the opposite direction. It is important that
these two tracks are on exactly parallel heading lines. Use basic trigonometry to calculate the required
heading offset that will allow the object to remain stationary. Redo the heading test to check that the
heading offset was entered correctly.
d/2
w
α
d
tan(α) = -d/(2w)
α = tan-1 (-d/2)
If the object moves as above, the sign is negated. Otherwise, remove the -ve sign from this equation.
Enter the calculated value for α into the Heading Offset on the Sensor sub-tab under Ship Setup.

8.2.10Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 18 (Optional): Clear Map Data
As the system has been in various stages of configuration over the course of this Commissioning, all
of the mapping before this point will have configuration errors in it. If the skipper is willing, you can
clear the maps so that newly recorded data will be free of any seatrial miss-configuration artefacts. A
procedure to do this follows:
1
Quit the WASSP application.
THIS PROCEDURE WILL DELETE ALL CHARTING
DATABASES.
If you wish to keep any of the charting databases,
refer to section “6.9.2 Database Management” on
page 43 of the WMB-X230 Operator Manual for
instructions on backing up charting databases.
2
3
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the maps
directory (D:\WMBData\BathMaps by default).
Delete the entire contents of the BathMaps folder.
This will include folders named after your databases
as well as trackdata.track and markdata.mark.
Deleting the entire contents will remove all mapping
databases, vessel tracks, and marks - effectively
starting fresh.
4
Restart the WASSP application.
8.2.11Sea Trial - Commissioning Step 19 (Optional): Map an area
Now that everything is configured as well as you can configure it you can check your work and
showcase the WASSP systems performance. Find an area with some feature, sand waves, depth
variance, rocks - whatever is handy. Have the skipper map an area, ideally with parallel tracks and
‘mow the lawns’ so that the coverage between each track on the contour display has some overlap.
It is a good idea to take a copy of raw data recorded during this mapping, as the data can be analysed
in closer detail at a desk and can be compared to any subsequent data received from the vessel and
may help isolation of a post-commissioning fault. Refer to section “6.2 Data Recorder” on page 34
of the WMB-X230 Operator Manual for instructions on recording data.

Navionics Chart Card Information
Registering a Navionics Chart Card
Navionics charts are normally stored on an SD card. These cards
have to be registered online before they can be used with your WMB-X230 software.
Some Navionics Chart Cards come supplied with a USB SD card reader. In these cases, either the
supplied USB card reader or the SD card reader on the WASSP Processor can be used.
The SD card reader on the Leviathan WASSP Processor only detects a
card on system boot. This means that the Navionics Chart Card will need
to be inserted into the Leviathan’s SD card reader prior to powering it on.
If you have already connected your WASSP Processor to the internet, and the charting view has
displayed charting detail (see 6.3 on page 30 of the Operator Manual), then your Navionics card is
already registered, or does not require registration.
To register your Navionics chart, please follow these steps:
1
Turn on the WASSP Processor.
Before accepting the Navigational Warning and
opening the WASSP Program, ensure the WASSP
Processor is connected to the internet.
This can be done by connecting the WASSP
Processor to an internet router via a network cable
connected to the secondary network port at the
rear of the WASSP Processor.
2
Insert the Navionics Chart Card into the WASSP
Processor.
See “APPENDIX A - Specific WASSP Processor
Information” on page 64 for relevant WASSP
Processor connections.
3
Start the WASSP program by accepting the
Navigational Warning on the splash screen.
If no dongle is found, a Dongle Error message
appears on the screen.
Ensure a dongle has been plugged into the WASSP
Processor’s USB port and click Retry. If this doesn’t
work, remove the dongle and try plugging it in again.
4
62
Once the WASSP program has initialised while
connected to the internet, the chart licence on your
Navionics card should be automatically registered to
the WASSP Processor.

is therefore unable to register
the Navionics Chart Card with
the registration server.
Check the WASSP Processor’s
connection to the internet.
Ensure you are using the
correct network port at the
rear of the WASSP Processor.
See “APPENDIX A - Specific
WASSP Processor Information”
on page 64 for details.
The Navionics Chart Card you
are using has exceeded its
registration limit.
Each Navionics Chart Card
can only be registered to a
maximum of 5 different PCs.
Use a Navionics Chart Card
which has not exceeded its
registration limit. This may
require purchasing a new card.
The Navionics registration
server is returning an error.
Wait for the Navionics server
fault to be fixed and try again.
There is nothing wrong with
your system - this message
occurs because of a fault with
their registration server.
The WASSP program has
detected a second version of
the same Navionics chart.
Close WASSP, use Windows
Explorer to navigate to
%APPDATA%\WASSP\
Navigator and delete the
TmpMap folder.
Restart WASSP - the charts
should load successfully from
the card. If not, they may need
to be registered.
Each Navionics chart card can only be
registered to a maximum of 5 different PCs.

Product Marking Explanations
In accordance with the requirements specified in SJ/T11364-2006, all the Electronic Information Products
(EIPs) sold in the People’s Republic of China are marked with a pollution control marking. The following
marking applies:
This marking indicates that the homogeneous substance within the EIP contains toxic or hazardous
substances or elements above the requirements listed in SJ/T11363-2006. These substances are identified
in Table 100.
Environmentally Friendly Use Period
The number in the marking shown as 10 in the illustration above, refers to the EIP’s Environmentally Friendly Use Period (EFUP).
The EFUP is the number of years from the date of manufacture that toxic or hazardous or elements contained in EIPs will not
leak or mutate under the normal operating conditions described in the EIP user documentation resulting in any environmental
pollution, injury or damage.
Note: Except as expressly stated herein and as required under mandatory provisions of regulations of the People’s Republic of
China, WASSP Ltd makes no representation or warranty of any kind expressed or implied, with respect to the EFUP and expressly
disclaims any representations or warranties expressed or implied with respect to the EFUP.
