CSSF Orders Sonardyne Syrinx DVL for ROPOS ROV

Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility (CSSF), a not-for-profit corporation, has ordered Syrinx doppler velocity log (DVL) technology from Sonardyne for its undersea research vehicle, ROPOS.

ROPOS (remotely operated vehicle for ocean sciences) is a modular work-class ROV which can be reconfigured to operate at different depths and from different size vessels depending on the science mission.

The 4,000 meter depth rated, 600 kHz Syrinx DVL has been chosen to support ROPOS.

It will be fitted to the vehicle’s dedicated navigation instrument skid which keeps any offset errors between sensors to a minimum, Sonardyne explained.

Vincent Auger, IT and navigation manager at CSSF said, “Our first dive with Syrinx installed on ROPOS was on an active hydrothermal vent site in the Indian Ocean. The bottom there is very rugged; essentially as rugged as it gets, but Syrinx coped with the challenge very well and demonstrated reliable bottom lock throughout the mission.”

Kim Swords, senior application engineer with Sonardyne in Houston said, “We’re delighted that CSSF is the latest scientific organisation to recognize the ownership benefits offered by our new Syrinx.
