Smart Tether is a revolutionary system for tracking a diver's phone or tether line - or an ROV umbilical - from a display at the surface. The Smart Tether has sensors, which measure and transmit angles and position information. A powerful tool for tracking.
Smart Tether Tracking
Smart Tether is integrated with the diver's comms line - in one cable. As the comms line moves its track shows up on the surface display. By knowing the diver's heading the surface can guide him towards a target. Please visit the web site for a better explanation.

Scout Diver Tracking
Scout USBL is a complete vessel based acoustic positioning system designed for tracking divers, ROVs and towfish in waters up to 1,000 metres. The system calculates the position of a subsea target by measuring the range (distance) and bearing (heading) from a vessel mounted transceiver to a small acoustic transponder fitted to the target - a technique known as Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) positioning. USBL is widely used by the offshore survey and ocean scientific industries as it offers high accuracy performance combined with efficient subsea tracking operations.
