A system for tracking and navigating underwater vehicles or divers using acoustic distance and/or direction measurements and subsequent location triangulation is known as an underwater acoustic positioning system.
Across a wide range of underwater tasks, such as oil and gas exploration, ocean sciences, salvage operations, marine archaeology, law enforcement, and military operations, underwater acoustic positioning devices are frequently utilised.
Range from a submersible-mounted transducer to additional transducers at known locations with known spacing is calculated by an acoustic positioning system.
By calculating the one-way or round-trip timing, this enables an exact range computation with correction for water temperature, salinity, and density.
The global acoustic positioning system market is a dynamic and rapidly evolving sector that plays a crucial role in various industries, including underwater exploration, marine navigation, and offshore resource extraction. Acoustic positioning systems rely on the use of sound waves to determine the location and orientation of objects or assets in a three-dimensional space.
The global acoustic positioning system market has experienced consistent growth over the past decade, the market was estimated to be valued in the range of several billion dollars in recent years, and it continues to expand as new applications emerge.
The market is truly global, with strong demand in coastal regions, as well as in areas with high offshore energy activities. Leading regions include North America, Europe, and Asia, where maritime industries and scientific research drive demand.
As technology continues to advance, the acoustic positioning system market is likely to grow and diversify further. New applications in underwater communication, autonomous navigation, and marine resource management are expected to emerge, contributing to sustained growth.
The Global Acoustic positioning system Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Kongsberg Maritime, another leading provider of APS systems, has won a contract to supply APS systems for a new offshore wind project in the North Sea. The project will involve the installation of 100 wind turbines and Kongsberg Maritime will supply its HiPAP APS system for the project.
Fugro, a leading provider of marine geospatial data and services, has won a contract to provide APS services for a new oil and gas project in the Gulf of Mexico. The contract will involve the provision of APS services for the installation of a new subsea pipeline.
Exail Launches New Compact USBL Positioning System for Permanent Vessel Installation.Exail, a top supplier of cutting-edge navigation, positioning, and imaging systems, introduces the Gaps M3, a revolutionary, portable, and reasonably priced subsea acoustic positioning system for long-term vessel installation.
Although Gaps M3 is a USBL positioning system without an incorporated inertial navigation system (INS), operators who can rely on their existing onboard navigation systems might choose it as a cost-effective option.
Gaps M3, which is designed for permanent USBL installations, can in fact be connected to on-board navigation systems to give users ongoing access to high-level precision that satisfies all operational needs for survey and Dynamic Positioning (DP) operations.
Gaps M3 integrated MEMS Attitude and Heading Reference System allows for continued deployments from opportunity vessels (AHRS).
The Gaps M3 builds on the Gaps Series’ well-known features by having a 3D, 4-hydrophone acoustic antenna with a maximum 200° aperture and new telemetry features that enable sophisticated acoustic communication capabilities.
When numerous vehicles need to be identified concurrently and in 360 degrees, it delivers real horizontal tracking and communication capabilities in shallow and deep water.
The Gaps M3 is offered in two versions: an export-free version with a maximum operating range of 995 metres, and an extended range version allowing operations to depths of more than 4000 metres.
