Ranger 2 is a survey grade Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) acoustic positioning system designed for deep water, long range tracking of underwater targets and position referencing for dynamically positioned (DP) vessels. The system calculates the position of a subsea target, for example an ROV, by measuring the range and bearing from a vessel-mounted transceiver to an acoustic transponder fitted to the target. Multiple subsea targets over a wide area and range of water depths can be simultaneously and precisely positioned.
Two versions of Ranger 2 USBL are available; Standard and Pro. In Standard configuration, Ranger 2 allows multiple subsea targets to be simultaneously tracked from a surface vessel at ranges of 6,000 metres and beyond. It is compatible with all makes of DP system and can achieve one second position updates in any water depth.
Simultaneously tracks multiple subsea targets; ROVs, towfish, AUVs.

Operating range beyond 6,000 metres.
0.1% system accuracy when optimised.
Up to 1 second position updates.
Automated setup reduces delays.
Easy to use software.
Compatible with Sonardyne’s SPRINT acoustically aided inertial navigation system.
