Ltd in Singapore, the SensorView software allowed data gathered by an acoustic transponder mounted on Tubing Head Spools (THS), to be transmitted at high speed to rig personnel monitoring the installation operations.
The system uses the Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) method to calculate the position of a subsea target, in this case Thien Nam's ROV, by measuring the range and bearing from a vessel-mounted transceiver to an acoustic transponder mounted on the target.
It uses an acoustic transponder as the link between a subsea location and a vessel-based monitoring station.
In conventional Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) operating mode, Ranger 2 calculates the position of a subsea target, such an ROV or towfish, by measuring the range and bearing from a vessel-mounted transceiver to an acoustic transponder fitted to the target.

Navigating by the same acoustic transponders Alvin uses, ABE took about two hours to reach the seafloor.
The project will see the installation of a subsea positioning network of more than 100 acoustic transponders allowing positioning of multiple vessels and ROVs, often working simultaneously on tasks including pipeline touch down monitoring, subsea asset positioning, and jumper metrology.
The project will observe the installation of a subsea positioning network of above 100 acoustic transponders permitting positioning of multiple vessels and ROVs, often working at the same time in the field, covering tasks together with pipeline touch down monitoring, subsea asset positioning and jumper metrology.

In addition to the system's deep water positioning performance, it also delivers valuable cost savings as it can be used with fewer acoustic transponders deployed on the seabed, significantly reducing set-up time following a vessel's arrival on location.
