Underwater Altimeter

An underwater or subsea altimeter is primarily used to measure the altitude (height) of an object above the seafloor. KONGSBERG's underwater altimeters are also suited to various other applications including positioning, berthing and below surface monitoring. The underwater vehicle industry (ROVs and AUVs) is the primary user of altimeters.

The KONGSBERG underwater altimeter product line is designed to operate in stand-alone mode (NMEA output) or connected to the MS1000 processing software.
