•
•
Small ROV obstacle avoidance and
target recognition
AUV guidance
If the new generation of very small and low cost ROVs are to develop their full potential it
is essential they are equipped with the vital tools and sensors expected on larger ROVs.
Along with the camera, the most important sensor for any vehicle is its obstacle
avoidance sonar. The all new Tritech Micron DST (Digital Sonar Technology) sets new
standards in compact sonar technology. It is the smallest digital CHIRP sonar in the
world. CHIRP technology dramatically improves the range resolution compared with
conventional sonars - it is a feature normally associated with much larger, more
expensive systems.
Based on experience gained from Tritech’s world class range of SeaKing and SeaPrince
sonars, the Micron DST incorporates the most advanced acoustic features and software
available today.
The sonar can be controlled by a customer supplied PC or laptop and it can be configured
for either RS232 or RS485 protocols. Micron DST has an auxiliary port to allow it to
interface with other Tritech sensors. This sonar incorporates the very latest surface
mounted digital electronics and many software features normally found only on full sized
commercial systems. Tritech believe that although the Micron DST is small in both size
and cost it should offer the full range of functionality expected from a professional
product.

The Aquadopp® profiler measures the current profile in water using acoustic Doppler
technology. It is designed for stationary applications and can be deployed on the bottom,
on a mooring rig, on a buoy or on any other fixed structure. It is a complete instrument
and includes all the parts required for a self contained deployment with data stored to an
internal data logger. Typical applications include coastal studies, online monitoring and
scientific studies in rivers, lakes, and channels.
The Aquadopp® profiler uses three acoustic beams slanted at 25° to accurately measure
the current profile in a user selectable number of cells. The internal tilt and compass
sensors tell the current direction and the high-resolution pressure sensor gives the
depth—and the tidal elevation if the system is fixed mounted. The standard 9 MB
recorder and internal alkaline batteries are typically sufficient for a 2–4 month
deployment. Deployment times can be increased or sampling schemes intensified by
expanding to 161 MB memory and external batteries.

Practical Use
One quick glance at the Aquadopp profiler tells you that it is a small and practical current
profiler that is simple to deploy. It gives you the full current profile and it comes standard
with all the trimmings such as a internal recorder, compass, tilt, pressure, temperature,
software, cable, etc. Go one step further into the system and you will find a host of new
features:
* Small blanking distances give you data close to the instrument
* Small cell sizes even in high flows
* Compass and tilt that automatically senses up or down orientation
(use the profiler either way)
* Adjustable power output reduces battery consumption in shallow water
* All plastic and titanium parts, from 2.4 kg in air
* Flexible transducer design—order special heads at low additional cost
* Powerful AquaPro Win32® software for trouble free deployment planning, recording,
data retrieval, and ASCII conversion
* Online data communication via radio modem
* Collect directional wave data at 1Hz or 2 Hz in between current profiles
* Inquire for deep water versions
Wave Directional Data
The Aquadopp can be configured to collect 1 Hz or 2 Hz wave data (p,U,V) interleaved
with the mean current profile. The 1Hz or 2 Hz data allow you to calculate the wave
height, period, and direction, either using Nortek add-on wave software or your own
algorithms. The instrument is best suited for wave measurements in areas with long
waves (Tp >4– 5 s). For other areas or for long-term online measurements, we
suggest looking at the AWAC as an alternative.
Third Generation Current Profiler
Nortek is proud to be the first company that introduced a third generation current
profiler. The first generation was the original ADCP, a bulky and expensive, but
revolutionary instrument first introduced in 1982. The second generation profilers were
introduced in 1994, which reduced the size,weight, and price by about 50%. The
Aquadopp profiler, introduced in 2002, repeats the feat—a 50% reduction in size,weight,
and price while producing the best performance, versatility and functionality yet.
