The Sonardyne WMT directional beacon is used for positioning ROVs, towfish and other mobile underwater targets. Configurable as both a transponder and responder, the mini-sized WMT is ideally sized and designed to provide full two-way Wideband interrogation and reply, mitigating interference to and from other users. When used with ROVs, the WMT includes an integrated rechargeable battery pack that is charged from the ROV’s power supply.
The WMT is operable to a depth of 3000m, and the fully two-way Wideband interrogation and reply enables the user to adjust power and settings on the fly depending on project needs. The WMT can be installed within the ROV frame in order to ensure protection from damage.
