Sonardyne debuts its smallest ever underwater tracking technology

6 February 2018

Subsea technology company, Sonardyne International Ltd, has unveiled its smallest ever underwater target tracking system, Micro-Ranger 2.

Micro-Ranger 2 is Sonardyne's third Ultra-Short Baseline (USBL) acoustic tracking system to be built around its Sixth-Generation (6G) hardware and Wideband 2 digital acoustic technology platform. But whereas Ranger 2 and Mini-Ranger 2 are designed for complex and deep water survey and positioning operations, the new entry-level model in Sonardyne's USBL family introduces features that make it ideal for tracking divers and small vehicles in rivers, lakes and coastal waters.

Ease-of-setup and ease-of-use have been key areas of engineering focus during the development of the new Micro-Ranger 2 resulting in a system which is extremely small and light, and can be deployed from the side of a small boat, pontoon, or even USV.
