Sonardyne’s family of Wideband  Sub-Minis (WSM) are a versatile  range of USBL transponder/responders designed for positioning  ROVs, towfish and other mobile  targets in water depths up to 4,000 metres.  Compact and rugged, WSMs  incorporate the latest Sonardyne  Wideband® signal technology  which offers superior ranging  accuracy, operation in a multi user,  multi-vessel environment and fast  USBL position updates.  In addition to supporting new  Sonardyne Wideband® signals,  WSMs also support traditional  Sonardyne tone and HPR 300 and  HiPAP® channels. A link allows the  WSM to be configured for use with  all of the popular MF frequency  acoustic navigation systems.
