RJE International Introduces the VADR/RM-6000Mis
RJE International now offers a small acoustic directional receiver that is designed for AUVs and ROVs.
Based on the popular VADR-6000M subsea vehicle acoustic receiver, the VADR/RM-6000Mis depth rated to 6000M and tracks all acoustic pingers that operate from 8 to 45kHz. It can also track and locate their custom line of acoustic transponders, the ATT-400 series.
Using separate components, the VADR/RM-6000M provides flexible installation options and using an RS232 data interface the operator has access to directional indication, operational information, and control functions of the receiver.
The unique omni-directional hydrophone provides a 360-degree field of view for detection while providing bearing indication to the acoustic source.
Using a RS232 data interface and ASCII data string, commands can be written that allow the AUV to detect an acoustic sound source and then direct the AUV to the sound source using the bearing indication provided by the system.
