Compatt 6 is the industry standard Long BaseLine (LBL transponder) transponder used for high precision survey and construction operations in all water depths. These include 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.
