Advanced Navigation utilises its advanced manufacturing techniques and industry-leading designs to offer two different solutions to underwater acoustic positioning.
The first is a traditional transceiver to transponder solution, where the Subsonus transceiver is mounted on a vessel and is able to track with high accuracy multiple Tag transponders on any subsea asset, be it a diver, a trawl net, or an ROV.
The second solution for underwater acoustic positioning offered by Advanced Navigation is the transceiver to transceiver configuration. In an industry-first, Advanced Navigation leverages the miniaturisation of the Subsonus transceiver and the advanced data fusion offered by its INS algorithm to offer an extremely accurate and robust acoustic positioning system where a Subsonus is mounted on a surface vessel, and another Subsonus is mounted on a subsea vehicle. With a power and ethernet link, the two transceivers are able to calculate the position of each other, as opposed to the calculation only being performed by the surface vessel. These two calculations are then fused using the Advanced Navigation algorithm, to provide high accuracy and a robust solution.
