Dolphin 6201 OAS

The Dolphin Model 6201 Obstacle Avoidance Sonar has been specifically engineered for A.U.V. and R.O.V. navigational applications.

When fitted to an AUV the control of the 6201 sonar is via Ethernet passed directly to the host computer. For ROV applications the use of either Ethernet or VDSL is available.

The Imaging software running under "Windows" produces images as shown on the right. In AUV applications the tracking software provides navigational messages to avoid targets that are detected within the configurable avoidance corridor.


Features Include

  • Real Time continuous scanning over 120 sector or selectable 90 / 60
  • 200m acoustic range
  • Track up to 250 targets
  • Ethernet or VDSL as standard
  • Optional 4000m or 6000m depth rating
  • Configurable Avoidance Corridor to suit AUV requirement
