Geosurvey Mexicana specialises in Differential Global Positioning Systems (DGPS) services for the oil industry.
Lacking a suitable system to provide positioning and orientation of suction piles, the company was unable to bid on some tenders. Consequently they started to look for an USBL device capable of providing position and heading.
‘’Looking for options we found the Advanced Navigation Subsonus USBL which provides all the benefits of competitor products but at a fraction of the cost and size’’ said Duarte, Project Manager at Geosurvey Mexicana.
Subsonus is a next generation USBL underwater acoustic positioning system that provides high accuracy position, velocity and heading at depths of up to 1000 metres. The system features an industry leading calibrated hydrophone array combined with an internal tightly coupled INS, all packed into a miniature titanium enclosure small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
