Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR), a multi-disciplinary technology expert specializing in the design, production, rental and sale of innovative marine survey equipment, has become the first company to invest in Sonardyne International Ltd.’s new Long BaseLine (LBL) and Inertial Navigation System (INS) software, Fusion 2. The announcement was made following Sonardyne’s launch event at OSEA 2018 in Singapore.

STR will upgrade its existing 6G hardware to Sonardyne’s new 6 ‘plus’ variants, which, combined with Fusion 2, will make marine survey and offshore construction projects faster and easier than ever.

Sonardyne’s new Compatt 6+ and ROVNav 6+ hardware has been designed to get the best performance from Fusion 2, a brand new software package that provides a single system from which surveyors can perform all of their LBL, acoustically-aided INS and Sparse LBL operations, with more functionality and capability than they’ve had before, including real-time SLAM calibration.

This performance is achieved with Wideband 3, which allows, for the first time, sensor telemetry data (e.g. pressure, depth, temperature) to be embedded within navigation (ranging) telemetry data, which means that there are no pauses in tracking when installing subsea structures, allowing operators to know exactly what’s happening at all times and reducing risk.
