AAE Easytrak USBL Systems

Easytrak is an Ultra Short Baseline (USBL) underwater positioning and tracking system centred on a multi-element, single transducer that transmits and receives acoustic signals to dynamic subsea targets from which range, bearing and depth information can be determined.

As a full system package, Easytrak has been specifically designed to overcome the difficulties of tracking underwater targets such as divers, ROV’s, AUV’s and tow-fish which operate out of sight beneath the water surface. As the name suggests, rapid deployment and ease of operation ensures that even novice users can commence tracking within minutes of set up. The innovative, compact design incorporates an impressive amount of features, providing stable and accurate tracking for a variety of subsea tasks.

All Easytrak Systems Include:
All operational equipment, hardware and software
Integral pitch, roll and heading sensors to compensate for vessel movement
GPS receiving software
Robust, lightweight enclosures
Intuitive control software, bringing the confidence of professional USBL systems to a wide operator base

In Addition, Easytrak Can
Track multiple targets simultaneously
Track horizontally, enabling the location of floating targets e.g. AUV retrieval
Operate in diverse applications with universal appeal
Offer a versatility in system configuration that is second to none
Operate AAE Acoustic Release Beacons (Nexus, Portable and Lite)

Five commercial versions of the system are available; the rack-mount, vessel based Nexus and Lite, the compact Alpha, and the Portable and Alpha Portable that have a display screen and keyboard housed in a marine grade splash-proof enclosure. The Nexus is the most recent rack-mount model. In addition to tracking traditional ‘tone-burst’ beacons, Nexus also tracks Spread Spectrum beacons that offer increased performance.
