How Do We Track Our Subs During Dives?

During mission or test dives, the surface support crew needs to have the sub(s) location at all times. To accomplish this task, Global Sub Dive's team utilizes a Tracklink 1500 USBL (ultra-short baseline) acoustics tracking system. Our Tracklink systems has a fully integrated high speed acoustic communication capability. It utilizes modern digital signal processing techniques and state of the art digital signal processor (DSP) to track the submersible from launching to retrieval.
