Sonardyne’s Scout USBL is a portable vessel based acoustic positioning system designed to track divers ROVs and AUVs and towfish in waters up to 1,000 metres. The system calculates the position of a subsea transponder by measuring the range (distance) and bearing (heading) from a vessel mounted transceiver to a small acoustic transponder fitted to the asset; a technique known as Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) positioning that offers high accuracy performance combined with efficient subsea tracking operations.
