cPAP® - ROV positioning in Long Base Line transponder array
The cPAP® is designed for very accurate positioning of ROV or other underwater umbilical connected vehicles or modules. The cPAP® is a must when such vehicles are to be positioned in a LBL array of transponders and can operate both the new Cymbal (PSK) and HiPAP® / HPR 400 (FSK) protocols for positioning and data telemetry. Cymbal is the new wide-band Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) protocol.
The small subsea transceiver unit is designed with a modular construction such that the transducer, transceiver electronics and end-cap modules can be replaced individually for full flexibility and also where sizes and weights of the modules are important.
