ROV USBL Selection
The Blueprint Subsea SeaTrac
The SeaTrac systems contain both a beacon and a transponder beacon, ideally suited to tracking ROVs and AUVs in real-time down to a depth of 300m and 2000m.
Simple, robust position tracking system for shallower water applications
USBL beacon equipped with AHRS and Active Doppler Compensation for reliable location acquisition
Extremely compact beacons suitable for installation on smaller inspection class ROVs
Intuitive SeaTrac PinPoint software interrogates up to 14 beacons for real-time relative and actual positional data
Accepts an external heading input and outputs a NMEA string for use in other devices
Beacon can be powered from a battery for standalone diver tracking
OEM systems and software SDK's available for integrators and developers
The Water Linked Underwater GPS (UGPS)
Underwater GPS G2 is Water Linked's latest Short BaseLine (SBL) system providing reliable accurate and robust acoustic positioning of a single Locator.
The G2 Topside is connected to the G2 Antenna which must be mounted in the water with direct line of sight to the Locator. A Wi-Fi signal emitted by the internal Web server of the G2 Topside allows the user to track the Locator using the Water Linked Web-based GUI. Users can also develop their own user interface using the Water Linked easy to use HTTP based API.
With the benefit of an integrated GPS and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), the GPS G2 provides absolute GPS position of the Locator, removing the need to integrate additional third-party sensors for accurate navigation. While only one Locator can be tracked the Locator can be set to one of 7 channels, allowing multiple GPS G2 systems to be used in the same area without interference.
Locators are available in one of 3 configurations to support the user’s requirements. The Locator must be synchronised with the Topside, which is achieved either through a GPS lock or through direct connection with the Topside, typically through the ROV tether
