Dunker 6 is a 6G® Sonardyne Wideband®2 Long BaseLine (LBL) and telemetry transceiver specifically designed for vessel deployment. The super duplex stainless steel housing with shock and vibration isolated electronics makes for an extremely rugged dunking  system.

Its high power output and Sonardyne Wideband®2 signal processing offers improved operating range and acoustic performance in challenging conditions such as when deployed from noisy vessels or in multipath environments.

The internal Lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack minimises the supply current for long dunker cables. It also enables relocation of the dunker if the cable is cut.  The robust AGP connector on the Dunker 6 is identical to the ROVNav 6 and HPT USBL for compatibility and to reduce spares.
