The receiver has a sector coverage of 180[degrees] or 360[degrees], a range resolution of 0.1 metres, a bearing resolution of 1.8[degrees], while accuracy is 0.18[degrees] in bearing and less than 0.01 metres in range.
The system covers 360[degrees] with an azimuth bearing resolution of less than 1[degrees] and a range resolution of 25 mm, can operate at depths between five and 50 metres, and can be deployed on the seabed, from piers and jetties or from a ship.
Proper placement on the glareshield is critical to bearing resolution and you need to be careful mounting the unit too close to the structure.
