Advanced Signal Processing Techniques in HiPAP 602

To achieve unparalleled accuracy in underwater operations, the HiPAP system employs unique signal processing techniques. This innovative approach enables the generation of narrow transmitter and receiver beams in all directions within the lower half of the transducer. The HiPAP 602, equipped with a large diameter multi-element planar array and electronic beamforming, not only provides high accuracy but also boasts long-range capabilities, making it particularly well-suited for deep-water applications.

ISeamless Integration with HAIN Subsea 7000 for Efficient Calibration

The HiPAP 602 excels in deep-water seabed mining and seamlessly integrates with the latest HAIN Subsea 7000 inertial navigation system. This integration allows for the fast calibration of sparse Long Baseline (LBL) arrays using the ROV box-in technique. Moreover, the new HAIN user interface operates seamlessly on the HiPAP system. The increased angular accuracy provided by HiPAP 602 not only enhances operational efficiency but also reduces costs by extending the range at which Short Baseline (SSBL) can be used for construction survey operations before transitioning to LBL based on project specifications. Additionally, the system proves beneficial for Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) surveys operating in depths of up to 6000m.

Versatile Compatibility and Depth Ratings of HiPAP 602

The HiPAP 602 stands out for its full compatibility with the entire range of medium frequency cNODE transponders and modems. With depth ratings available from 100m to an impressive 7000m, the system offers versatility and adaptability across a wide range of underwater environments. This compatibility ensures that the HiPAP 602 can seamlessly integrate into various underwater operations, making it a reliable and efficient solution for subsea positioning and navigation tasks.
