Compatt 6 is the industry standard Long BaseLine (LBL) transponder used for high precision survey and construction operations in all water depths, including: spoolpiece metrology, pipeline touchdown monitoring, structure installation and dynamic positioning reference. It is fully compatible with all of Sonardyne’s 6G® (sixth generation) LBL, USBL and LUSBL systems; Fusion 6G, Ranger 2 and Marksman.

Compatt 6 offers significant time saving using faster and more robust Sonardyne Wideband®2 acoustic ranging and telemetry protocols. This makes any system operating with Compatt 6 significantly easier to operate therefore de-risking operations, reducing vessel time and reducing training requirements for offshore personnel.

Sonardyne Wideband®2 advanced signal processing offers improved acoustic performance in challenging conditions, longer range, improved multipath rejection around structures and real-time range diagnostics for quality control. Sonardyne Wideband®2 also reduces the interference to and from adjacent Sonardyne and other acoustic positioning systems. With over 500 unique addresses the Compatt 6 family of transponders offer the lowest risk for any subsea operation.

The integrated communications and navigation technology allows the transponder to be used as a multi-purpose modem, autonomous data logger and navigation reference transponder.
