Sonardyne is an international subsea engineering company delivering trusted solutions for inertial navigation, acoustic positioning, wireless communication and autonomous control to the offshore oil and gas, oceanographic and maritime defence industries.
Ranger 2 USBL is the company’s acoustic reference system for DP survey and construction vessels. It offers fast and reliable position updates in any water depth and simultaneous tracking of ROVs and other subsea targets to beyond 6,000 metres. Ranger 2 is compatible with all makes of DP system including GE, Kongsberg, L3, MT and Rolls Royce and can be installed to extend the operational capabilities of both new build and existing vessels.
For dynamically positioned mobile drilling and production units, Sonardyne offers Marksman LUSBL which meet users’ requirements for accurate and repeatable subsea positioning in all water depths and operating conditions. Marksman equipment can be supplied in dual redundant and dual independent configurations and can be integrated with Sonardyne’s emergency acoustic BOP control, riser angle monitoring and riser profiling technologies.
Complimenting both Ranger 2 and Marksman is DP-INS, Sonarydne’s inertial navigation technology. DP-INS offers a truly independent DP reference that allows vessel positioning and subsea operations to be safely maintained during periods of short-term GPS and acoustic disruptions.
Sonardyne’s global customer support programme network includes special engineering, operational planning, installation, training and through-life support.
