VideoRay and Sonardyne integrate tech for ROVs
VideoRay has integrated its Mission Specialist Technology with Sonardyne’s Micro-Ranger 2 Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) to improve operation of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).
The Micro-Ranger 2 USBL is designed for tracking divers, small ROVs and UUVs. It determines the location of underwater targets by transmitting an acoustic signal to transponders attached to the platform being tracked.
Mission Specialist Technology is featured on VideoRay’s Defender (pictured) and Pro 5 ROVs, making them suitable for use with the Mirco-Ranger 2 USBL. Both are designed using interchangeable modular components.
Chris Gibson, VP of sales, marketing & business development at VideoRay, said: ‘Micro-Ranger 2 worked flawlessly, accurately tracking the Defender as it deployed the Viper charge on a simulated manta mine.’
‘It’s a high-performance tool that gives our ROVs even more range and flexibility when matched with the Viper system’, Gibson continued.
