LinkQuest - TrackLink 1500 USBL

Tracklink 1500 systems are USBL acoustic tracking systems with fully integrated high-speed acoustic communication capability. Through Broadband Acoustic Spread Spectrum (BASS) technology, LinkQuest provides solutions for underwater tracking and communication at sharply reduced cost and increased robustness. An extensive line of models is available to suit the users' specific application and budget constraint. Since their introduction in early 2002, the Tracklink acoustic tracking systems have quickly become the bestselling USBL tracking systems in the world by utilizing BAAS technology, strong rejection to multipaths and ship noise, integrated with LinkQuest's most advanced high-speed acoustic communication modems, advanced power-efficient DSP technology for transponders and USBL transceiver, small and light weight.

Tracklink 1500LC

Tracklink 1500LC is a low cost yet highly robust system that brings the convenience of an USBL system to many users who typically do not have the budget for an expensive USBL tracking. It is suitable for underwater inspection and imaging and other application that do not require accuracy more than 3°.

Tracklink 1500MA

Tracklink 1500MA is a cost-effective, medium accuracy (1°) underwater tracking system and provides a highly robust solution to cost conscious users who require improved positioning accuracy. It tracks up to 16 targets at a range of up to 1000 meters with ship noise. This system is suitable for the project that do not require high accuracy, but the deviations must remain within tolerance. For example, it is suitable for pipe laying application where several meters can be tolerated.

Tracklink 1500HA

Tracklink 1500HA offers high level USBL tracking system with 0.25° accuracy. This accuracy is the highest level of accuracy expected from USBL systems. If requires more accuracy, must switch to LBL systems.
