HiPAP® 351P – High Precision Acoustic Positioning and underwater navigation system, portable
A Portable version for vessels of opportunity
This is the brand new member of the HiPAP family. With its unique, new and compact transducer containing “a complete transceiver” and an accurate Motion Reference Unit, it will bring a new era into the underwater positioning services for “vessels of opportunity”. It is the only automatic beam steering portable transducer in the market. The transducer is designed to be mounted on a shaft to be installed over-the-side or through a moon-pool of a vessel.
The transducer can be tilted to have the 120 degree cone operating area in the sector of the required area. There will be no need for extra calibration, or mechanical fine adjustments, as the internal Motion Reference Unit will automatically compensate for the tilt.
Now also with built in Inertial sensor
A built in north seeking heading sensor is also available in the model HiPAP351P-I. The sensor is based on an inertial measurement unit and will allow for GPS antenna offset calibration only.
