SPRINT-Nav family of hybrid navigators
Save you time. Saves you cost. Saves you payload.
Guide, control and navigate your USVs, ROVs and AUVs faster and more efficiently with SPRINT-Nav.
An all-in-one acoustic-inertial sensor that replaces the need for a separate DVL, pressure sensor and INS/AHRS saving you the cost, cabling and integration challenges that come with different sensors from different vendors. SPRINT-Nav delivers class-leading performance as good as a fraction of a metre over many kilometres travelled. It’s now joined by SPRINT-Nav Mini, the perfect instrument for Inspection class ROV control and USVs.
SPRINT-Nav. All-in-one guidance and navigation.
Combines our SPRINT inertial sensor, Syrinx DVL and high accuracy intelligent pressure sensor in a single housing. Performance levels to suit any task
Tightly integrates raw acoustic, Doppler and inertial data – unique to Sonardyne
Titanium housed for deep ROV missions. Outputs altitude, depth, orientation and velocity. Configure and control using a Web UI

SPRINT-Nav family of hybrid navigators case studies
Dude, where’s my ocean robot?
Read if you’re interested in navigation in challenging maritime and underwater environments and how our hybrid navigator for underwater, and uncrewed vehicles, SPRINT-Nav X, can support USV operations in littoral zones.
Client: DASA and Dstl
Extending the limits of autonomous systems
Improving the endurance and navigational precision of underwater autonomous systems, while also reducing costs, could provide disruptive capability in the subsea monitoring and inspection space. Geraint West, Ocean Science Head of Market, explores the challenges and solutions.
Client: National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and L3Harris ASV
DVL aiding – in the harshest environments
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.
Clients: UTEC and DeepOcean
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.
