Subsea Positioning and Communication

Vue d'ensemble

Navigation and positioning information is a significant reference to the performance of the increasingly sophisticated sensors. Efficient, accurate and reliable navigation and positioning, in all environmental and operational conditions, is a key requirement for modern operations.

Protracted MTBF and service life, scalability and flexibility, interchangeability and life-cycle cost reductions through commonalities, low maintenance and obsolescence management are prevailing criteria applicable for satisfying customer’s life of field operations.
