Track a towfish, position an ROV, DP your vessel, search the seabed or navigate an AUV. When you need to invest in Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) acoustic technology to support your subsea positioning operations, Ranger 2 has the performance you need, at the investment level you can afford to get the project completed faster and more efficiently than any other system on the market.

All USBL systems calculate position by measuring the range and bearing from a vessel-mounted transceiver to an acoustic transponder fitted to a moving target or placed on the seabed. But not all USBL systems do it with the accuracy and precision offered by Ranger 2.

We’ve taken everything that made our original Ranger system so effective and advanced it to the next level. That next level is our award-winning 6G (sixth generation) acoustic hardware platform and Sonardyne Wideband® 2 digital signal architecture which work seamlessly together to deliver the best possible USBL positioning performance and operator experience.

Vessel and vehicle hardware is easy to install and configure. It can track your equipment to beyond 6,000 metres and update its position every second. It’s engineered for shallow water, deep water, high elevation and multi-user operating scenarios. And if your vessel’s fitted with a DP system – regardless of what make it is – Ranger 2 can interface with it.
