Vessel-mounted Operations

Our VM Operations package is precision engineered for challenging underwater currents. With its intuitive software and DNV type-approved sea valve solution, operators have essential operational data readily available. As offshore challenges mount due to unpredictable currents in increasingly remote areas, our renowned Signature ADCP technology can be integrated on operational vessels, ensuring accurate real-time insights from vessel to seafloor.

  • A 333 kHz frequency for range optimization
  • Concave transducer design allowing for flush mounting, independent of salinity changes
  • Serviceable in water without divers due to the type-approved sea valve
