Description

The Kongsberg HPR 400P Hydroacoustic Positioning System is a stand alone portable system. It is based around a rugged, splash proof, shock resistant and all in one portable cabinet. The cabinet contains all the surface electronics necessary for underwater positioning. The portable cabinet is equipped with strong carrying handles and has detachable covers at the front and rear. Together with applicable software and a transducer, the system is easy to use by simply interfacing the applicable transducer to the back plane of the portable unit. The transducer may be deployed from any vessel or platform.

The Kongsberg HPR 400P system can be directly interfaced to a Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) receiver making it possible to give transponder position, Super Short Base Line (SSBL) or vessel position, Long Base Line (LBL) in UTM coordinates. Several SSBL and LBL transducer types are available, and can be supplied with the system. A standard HPR transducer mounted on a hull unit may also be used. This would enable the portable system to be used as an emergency system if the standard system should develop a fault.

Several transponder types are available. The Kongsberg HPR 400P Hydroacoustic Positioning System can operate with up to 56 transponder channels and feature transponder telemetry communication for use with transponder release, sensor readings and all LBL functionals. In addition the 14 “old” SSBL channels from the HPR 300 family can also be used.
