The small and portable acoustic positioning system
µPAP transducers. µPAP is a compact acoustic positioning system for operation from surface vessel to track ROV's, tow fish, divers and other subsea targets.
µPAP is a small and compact acoustic positioning system for operation from a surface vessel to track ROV's, tow fish, divers and any other subsea target at ranges to several thousand meters. The
system operates in SSBL mode where it measures the distance and direction to subsea transponders and computes a 3D position in local coordinates or in geographical coordinates. µPAP is designed to be
a portable system for easy installation on the vessel or other surface unit.
The system can be used with all KONGSBERG manufactured transponders for depths down to 4000 meters.
A built in motion sensor in the µPAP transducer compensates for vessel roll and pitch movements. To meet various demands from the marked, the µPAP transducer will be available in several versions
with respect to built-in motion sensors and thereby physical size.
Two different product lines
We presently offer two different lines of Acoustic underwater positioning and navigation systems:
- HiPAP family - High precision acoustic positioning system
- µPAP - Small and portable acoustic positioning system
