CurrentSurveyor Software

The Windows-based CurrentSurveyor real-time and post-processing software program was designed specifically for use in underway current profiling. The easy-to-use software allows you to confidently measure currents in less time than ever. This program includes the CurrentSurveyor System Manual in PDF format.

Note: This software is licensed.
A software license is required to run this program, which requires that the ADP has the bottom-track option. If your ADP has the bottom-track option installed, but you have not received a software license to run CurrentSurveyor, you can request a CurrentSurveyor software license.

Important: If you have a version of CurrentSurveyor that is earlier than v4.20, we recommend that you UNINSTALL the old version before installing the new version. This is REQUIRED for any of our beta testers.


  • CurrentSurveyor software is compatible with Windows 8/7/Vista/XP/2K.
  • Includes the CurrentSurveyor System Manual (PDF format)
  • Real-time discharge calculations (including "edge estimates") with output files and summary reports
  • Discharge Report: This HTML-formatted, customizable report outputs all your discharge information in a single easy-to-read format. Add your company logo to the top for a professional summary that prints easily.
  • Output compatible with FlowPack velocity-indexing software tool
  • Vessel track with velocity vectors
  • Bathymetry profile
  • Data quality assurance parameters
  • View/Analyze the following data: velocity, acoustic signal strength, velocity standard deviation, signal-to-noise ratio, temperature, pressure, heading, pitch, roll.
  • Observe velocity data in beam, XYZ, or ENU (East-North-Up) coordinates.
  • Reference velocity data to the ADP, bottom-track data, or GPS data.
  • Set and display Navigational Waypoints when surveying with DGPS. Plot a course for your measurement with the new navigational controls and display. Store this information so that measurements can be repeated without difficulty.
  • Multi-language support - English, French, Italian, Spanish
  • Customizable tabular data tables
  • Data export and batch processing options
  • Integrate an echo-sounder into your depth measurements - collect 3-beam depth data and echo-sounder data simultaneously.
  • Rotate velocity profiles to a user-selected angle.
  • Perform velocity profile extrapolations.
  • Adjust scaling factors and change scaling units.
  • Zoom-in on a selected range of profiles.
  • Limit the range of profiles loaded.
  • Load more than one data file (restricted only by amount of available computer memory).
  • Display configuration information, hardware information, and user setup information.
