Ranger 2 is a survey grade Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) acoustic positioning system designed for deep water, long range tracking of underwater targets and position referencing for dynamically positioned (DP) vessels. The system calculates the position of a subsea target, for example an ROV, by measuring the range and bearing from a vessel-mounted transceiver to an acoustic transponder fitted to the target. Multiple subsea targets over a wide area and range of water depths can be simultaneously and precisely positioned.

Ranger 2 Pro is designed for complex operations where any number of subsea targets can be tracked. Multiple transceivers and attitude compensation sensors can be simultaneously interfaced into Ranger 2 Pro allowing for highly redundant, bespoke installations. Ranger 2 Pro also supports subsea INS integration, external triggers for acoustic synchronisation and user configurable displays.
