Why Fusion 2 is perfect for your operations
Do more with less
Fusion 2 allows you to control all of your subsea LBL, Sparse LBL and SPRINT INS projects so you need less hardware mobilised offshore.
Built for 6G+
Our latest 6G+ instruments use the new Wideband 3 signal technology, which is key to unlocking the benefits of Fusion 2.
Fusion 2 LBL allows users to run calibrations in real time. This means less time spent calibrating and more time collecting the right data, first time.
With Fusion 2, gone is the need to operate two independent software and hardware systems to control your 6G LBL and SPRINT INS. Fusion 2 does it all in a single interface, designed from the ground up with intuitive workflows so there’s less to learn. It also means reduced set-up time, reduced interfacing and reduced onboard hardware.
For the first time Fusion 2 enables seabed transponders to be SLAM calibrated in real-time for easier and faster Sparse LBL operations. The UI can be customised using docks, and includes light and dark themes. And by embedding sensor data with high update navigation ranging data, there’s no more interruptions to positioning updates at critical moments.
With Fusion 2, you’ll begin to see the benefits even before your project teams head offshore. Acoustic and INS projects can be configured and checked in the office prior to vessel mobilisation – saving you time, streamlining procedures and helping you to further de-risk operations.
For those who want to tailor their operations, you can quickly do multiple computations, compare different set-ups, and pick the one you want. Sparse LBL might suit one operation more than LBL and vice versa. Now it’s easy to check, on-site, which works best for you.
To further increase operational efficiency, we have developed a new digital signal processing protocol, Wideband 3, that you’ll find inside the latest evolution of our trusted 6G platforms, Compatt 6+ and ROVNav 6+. The good news is that this functionality is available to existing Compatt 6 and ROVNav 6 users, with a firmware upgrade.
Wideband 3 delivers a major step-up in your positioning update rates; 1Hz LBL tracking of structures as they are lowered and moved in the water column.
Wideband 3 allows you to get sensor data at the same time as navigation ranging data, which means operators can get real-time positions and sensor data. By combining ranging and telemetry data, Wideband 3 will accelerate update rates by a factor of 10, eliminating issues operators face with latency.
Fusion 2 also supports use of our SPRINT 300 for LBL INS, giving you lower start-up costs for practical, reliable LBL INS.

Fusion 2 case studies
Deep water structure installation – made easy
Our Gyro Compatt 6 is a great way to simplify structure installation operations in all water depths. Using our Gyro Compatt 6 helped offshore contractor China Offshore Fugro Geosolutions (COFG) performed smooth structure installations during the latest phase of the deep water Liuhua field in the South China Sea.
Rewriting the subsea survey rules
Fusion 2 is not just simplifying offshore survey operations, it’s changing how people operate – for the better. Mike Clark, Global Survey Manager, i-Tech 7, told Baseline about their route to demonstrating reductions in offshore vessel schedules for Subsea 7’s deepwater field development projects using the real-time SLAM capability in Fusion 2.

Using a hammer to crack a nut? Try using a USV instead
USVs are no longer a niche tool used within defence, they’re now regularly patrolling our oceans, gathering hydrographic and oceanographic data. Is it time that they were also used to support smarter, cleaner and more cost-effective offshore construction operations? Ed Moller, Head of Energy, thinks so.
