Dynamic Positioning Transponder 6

Product Name: Dynamic Positioning Transponder 6
Product Description:
Year of initial introduction :
Year of latest version:
Main applications:DPT 6 is designed to be used as a seabed reference transponder by USBL acoustic positioning systems, installed on many Dynamically Positioned (DP) vessels. The DPT 6 supports Sonardyne’s latest Wideband®2 acoustic ranging and telemetry providing high accuracy positioning, robust performance in noisy and multipath conditions and easy set-up and use. With hundreds of channels, less interference to and from other acoustic systems and multi-user capability, Wideband®2 enables easier SIMOPS vessel capability. These features of the DPT 6 help de-risk subsea operations and save vessel time and cost.
Field of Use:The Types 8124, 8126 and 8129 DPT’s are full sized transponders designed specifically for seabed deployment or large target tracking. Available in 3,000 metre rated omnidirectional or directional transducers, DPTs are equipped with a rugged spring assisted release mechanism, depth sensors and advanced power and gain controls if required.
