HYPACK at Normandy Beach

Normandy beach

"...the surveying project was undertaken to honour those that passed, and to explore the wrecks before they disappear forever..."

A team of international scientists has surveyed the Normandy coast to reveal how the greatest naval invasion in history unfolded. Utilising the latest technologies and the world's most advanced software, the team surveyed 511km2 of sea floor, producing an enormous 11TB of data.

Employing HYPACK hydrographic surveying software, the team was able to assimilate over 4 billion soundings from multi-beam sonar to produce very high resolution colour 3-dimensional images of the seabed, including many remaining artefacts from the D-Day landings.
