Sonardyne has received an order to supply five Ranger 2 Pro USBL tracking systems to survey and mapping specialists C&C Technologies, a subsidiary of Oceaneering.
Ranger 2 Pro is designed for deep water tracking of underwater targets and position referencing for dynamically positioned (DP) vessels. It builds on the Sonardyne’s original Ranger system by adding support for the latest 6G (Sixth Generation) acoustic instruments and Wideband 2 signal architecture.
According to Sonardyne, Ranger 2 Pro system will allow C&C Technologies to track multiple targets, including ROVs, towfish and AUVs, simultaneously at ranges beyond 6,000 metres, as well as carry out complex seafloor operations, due to the Long and Ultra-Short BaseLine (LUSBL) support.
Ralph Gall, technical sales manager for Sonardyne, said: “Previously we have supplied DP-INS systems for the Ocean Intervention series of vessels for DP purposes. Sonardyne is extremely pleased to have been able to meet the requirements of C&C Technologies on this project and hope to build upon the relationship for many years to come.”
