Operations involving large vehicles or equipment close to the seafloor can pose a challenge for most traditionally mounted navigation systems. For many applications in these environments, mounting the Doppler velocity log (DVL) with an unobstructed downward view to achieve bottom lock is particularly challenging. Not any more.
Shallow water isn’t any less demanding than deep water. DynamOcean operates in tidal estuaries with fast-flowing water and ever-changing environmental settings. Using our acoustic releases and underwater positioning technology they were able to reliably deploy and retrieve their ADCP sensors.
