Fusion 6G LBL – Operator Training Course

Course Ref: Fusion 6G LBL

Fusion LBL 6G® continues to be the world’s

most popular Long BaseLine (LBL) acoustic
positioning system by providing the most
accurate method for installing subsea structures,
tracking ROVs and conducting acoustic
metrology. The system operates by measuring
acoustic ranges to a seabed array of
transponders. These ranges are then passed
through a least squares computation to precisely
trilaterate a position.
As the system utilises a fixed seabed array, the
system precision remains the same regardless of
water depth.
