  • USBL Broadband Acoustic Tracking System (BATS)

The EdgeTech BATS System is an Ultra Short BaseLine (USBL) acoustic positioning system that uses broadband CHIRP-based acoustic technology to achieve longer ranges and improved accuracies, while still retaining the wide beam pattern (>180  degrees) that is required for effective operations in shallow water applications.  

The core system consists of single or multi-beacons to be fitted to the targets to be tracked, and a hydrophone mounted on the surface vessel that is connected to a Signal Interface Module, which in turn is interfaced to a PC or laptop running the Windows-based ORE Trackman software. Position (GPS), heading and motion sensors can be connected to the system, the software is user-friendly and intuitive, and when combined with a navigation software package like NaviPac, a BATS system will provide accurate tracking of a wide range of sub-surface targets, including divers, towfish, ROVs, AUVs, manned submarines and cable installation vehicles.
