Description

Sonardyne RovNav 5 is a highly configurable tri-band acoustic transceiver designed to support a family of remote transducers operating in the LF, MF and EHF frequency bands. Its primary use is for operation with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) or other towed equipment. Used within an array of calibrated seabed transponders its function is to position the ROV in Long Baseline (LBL) mode accurately and rapidly. Alternatively, the Sonardyne RovNav 5 can remain on the vessel, fitted with a dunking transducer and used to assist with the calibration of arrays to position the vessel or simply to command transponders in the water.
