Navigation

DVL500 Compact

300 m

Bottom-track from 0.1 to 175 m range; 300 m operational depth

  • Bottom-track from 0.1-175 m range
  • Per-ping and per-beam data quality estimates
  • 300 m operational depth

Overview

The DVL500 Compact combines the compact design of the standard DVL1000 with the superior bottom-track range of the DVL500. It can fly higher in the water column and closer to the seabed than similar equipment, enabling small vehicles to do bigger jobs.

  • Currents
  • Bottom track

Highlights

  • Bottom-track from 0.1-175 m range
  • Per-ping and per-beam data quality estimates
  • 300 m operational depth

Usage

  • Small vehicles requiring longer bottom track range
  • Compact AUVs with high accuracy requirements
  • Easy integration with leading inertial navigation systems (INS)

Integration

With the best balance of size and range in the survey-grade DVL market, the 300m rated DVL500 Compact is equipped for easy integration with leading INS systems to create a robust, reliable navigation system, tested and proven across AUV, ROV, USV and other platforms. As with all of Nortek's DVLs, the DVL500 Compact is compatible with top control software including EIVA, Seebyte and Greensea.

Reliability

Tested in demanding conditions in the Oslo fjord, the DVL500 Compact has a proven track record in areas of variable bathymetry and conditions. The water track feature provides a velocity backup if the bottom becomes out of range. The spectrum analyzer assures thorough system level integration.

Results

The DVL500 Compact provides reliable navigation in the most demanding conditions across multiple platforms. The addition of simultaneous current profiles improves operational safety and allows opportunistic oceanographic data collection.
