PORTCHESTER, UK – L3 Technologies will deploy Sonardyne International’s 6G-systems on its C-Stat 2 and C-Cat 3 autonomous vessels.

These will be available factory-fitted with Sonardyne’s 6G range of Ranger 2 Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) tracking and communications systems for data gathering and subsea positioning tasks during offshore operations.

The C-Stat 2, equipped with Sonardyne’s Ranger 2 Gyro USBL model, is designed for precise placement of underwater assets to assist touchdown monitoring, seismic cable lay operations, Compatt 6 Long BaseLine (LBL) array box-in and remote LBL baseline calibration, vehicle tracking, and subsea sensor data collecting.

The C-Cat 3, equipped with Mini-Ranger 2, will allow tracking and communications with up to 10 AUVs at the same time.
