Introducing the SeaTrac series of Micro-USBL tracking and data modems. Built around a robust broadband spread spectrum signalling scheme, these multipurpose acoustic transponder beacons are capable of simultaneously tracking asset positions and undertaking bi-directional data exchange.
When used in a tracking application, one X150 is mounted from the supervisor vessel, and connected to a PC running the SeaTrac NavPoint display and logging software. All positions are computed by the X150 beacon, so no additional PC hardware is required. Sub-surface assets to be tracked (including Divers, ROV's, AUV's etc) are fitted with an X010 or X110 beacon, and optionally may use the data port to provide periodic acoustic communications with other systems and sensors.
In this mode up to 14 other beacons may be tracked at ranges up to 1km from the supervisor, with the position of each being optionally broadcast to others in the network.
For optimal performance with a VideoRay Pro 4, the SeaTrac system comprises a subsea X010 transponder, a surface X150 transducer and NavPoint operating software under control of a host PC/Laptop.
Available for both purchase and rental from Atlantas Marine.
