TrackServer Information Page
Inc. is a new company located in Fall River, Massachusetts, that
was formed by OceanServer Technology to commercialize an
underwater acoustic positioning method patented by OceanServer in
2005. This technology
is broadly applicable to most underwater positioning, navigation
and tracking challenges, many beyond the scope of OceanSever’s AUV
Inc. has developed a simplified method of acoustic positioning -
trade named EchoRanger - that enables a subsurface device such as
an AUV, ROV, or Diver Handheld to accurately derive its position.
This technology, based on one-way communication (listen-only),
eliminates the hand-shake exchanges of other positioning method
such as LBL and USBL, which are often unpredictable in
acoustically complex environments.
electronics can also be enabled to transmit as well as receive,
which permits an operator with a surface piercing gateway buoy to
monitor positioning and status in real-time via wireless RF or
Iridium, and issue Command and Control instructions to the
subsurface device. Pre-defined behaviors carried by the
subsurface device can be triggered by the operator via wireless
comms to the surface buoy, or via acoustic modem.
