Sonardyne has supplied its Mini-Ranger 2 underwater positioning system and Wideband Sub-Mini 6 transponders to Oceanscan for underwater tracking services, the company announced on 3 July.

Oceanscan has added the systems to its rental fleet to support its customers carrying out offshore wind and shallow water hydrographic survey operations.

Mini-Ranger 2 is a compact and portable system that offers a standard operating range of 995m, extendable up to 4,000m. It can simultaneously track up to ten subsea targets, such as divers, ROVs and structures, at very fast update rates.

The system is designed for nearshore operations being run from vessels of opportunity and for construction barges that need survey grade positioning performance, without the cost and complexity of a deep water system.
