Joint ESTCP/NAOC Training on UX-Analyze
In conjunction with the National Association of Ordnance Contractors (NAOC), the US Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) sponsored a series of training classes in June and July on the recently-released version 9.2 of Geosoft’s UX-Analyze analysis software. The methods and procedures that form the basis of UX-Analyze were developed over the years by the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and ESTCP Principal Investigators working on classification as applied to munitions response or Advanced Geophysical Classification as it is referred to these days.
One of the most important new features discussed at the training is the ability to easily process dynamic survey data collected using advanced EMI sensors and perform “Informed Source Selection.” This makes a powerful analysis tool that researchers have been using for a number of years available to the production geophysics community. This version also includes a number of tools designed to facilitate the QC and QA tests specified in the Uniform Federal Policy – Quality Assurance Project Plan template (UFP-QAPP) recently promulgated by the Intergovernmental Data Quality Task Force.
ESTCP is continuing to support the development of UX-Analyze. This year, work has started on “Efficient and Secure Cloud Computing for UXO Classification and Project Management” which aims to bring improved efficiencies, greater business agility, increased data availability, increased collaboration, increased processing speed, and cost savings to the analysis portion of a munitions response. In addition, it will solve the problems encountered by many Government program managers and State regulators when they try to install advanced analysis software on their office computers.
