Sonardyne Compatt 6 Wideband 2 Transponder

Compatt 6 offers significant time saving using faster and more robust Wideband 2 acoustic ranging and telemetry protocols. This makes any system operating with Compatt 6 significantly easier to operate therefore de-risking operations, reducing vessel time and reducing training requirements for offshore personnel. For example, in one transmission, Compatt 6 tells the navigation system what sensors and functionality it has available as well as its complete configuration.

Sonardyne Wideband® 2 advanced signal processing offers improved acoustic performance in challenging conditions, longer range, improved multipath rejection around structures and real-time range diagnostics for quality control. Wideband 2 also reduces the interference to and from adjacent Sonardyne and other acoustic positioning systems.
