An underwater or subsea altimeter is primarily used to measure the altitude (height) of an object above the seafloor. Kongsberg Mesotech's underwater altimeters are also suited to various other applications
including positioning, berthing and below surface monitoring. The underwater vehicle industry (ROVs and AUVs) is the primary user of altimeters.
The Kongsberg Mesotech underwater altimeter product line is designed to operate in stand-alone mode (NMEA output) or connected to the MS 1000 processing software.
