NIMROD - UNDERWATER NAVIGATION & SONAR SYSTEM
NIMROD, “THE SEEKER” is designed to aid divers in locating items underwater and as an underwater navigation aid between waypoints, without the need to surface, via a GPS receiver, which floats on the water’s surface.
The system can take the information from Google Earth, or alternatively from known co-ordinates, to plan the mission. To ensure the diver is travelling in the correct direction, each waypoint can be named and the route is shown on a screen.
The system is also fitted with a Tritech Micron sonar. This can be used to locate ordinance and other objects of interest while conducting a tactical or circular search around a known datum. The range can be controlled on the sonar up to 100 metres. The system also oers a gain control for the sonar, which increases/decreases the clarity of the image on the screen.
