Faster set-up and calibration, greater equipment utilisation and reduced risk. These are just some of the cost saving benets of the latest range of Compatt 5 Wideband transponders from Sonardyne.  

All Medium Frequency Compatt 5s now incorporate Wideband Technology which uses advanced digital signalling techniques to dramatically improve the performance of acoustic positioning, navigation and telemetry systems. 

The faster and more rugged wideband telemetry scheme supported by Compatt 5, enables baseline measurement and calibration data to be acquired faster and more reliably, allowing users to begin work sooner. 

The Types 8000 Omni-Directional, 8003 Directional and 8103 Deep Directional Compatt 5 are ‘Standard’ length transponders that are suited to a wide range of subsea applications.
