Seatronics, an Acteon company, has purchased two Sprint systems from Sonardyne.
The Sprint systems were purchased to support of a key customer on the OCTP project with Eni off Ghana’s Western Region coast, Seatronics explained.
The Sprint is an acoustically aided subsea inertial navigation system for subsea vehicles. It makes optimal use of acoustic aiding data from acoustic USBL and LBL positioning and other sensors such as Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) and pressure sensors.
This improves position accuracy, precision, reliability, and integrity while reducing operational time and vessel costs.
