The Tracker 650 is optimized for minimum cost with performance ideally suited for everyday operation of most small ROVs.

Why equip your ROV with a DVL? Here are three great reasons!

Position Hold: Stabilize your underwater vehicle. No more drift due to tether pull and current. Pause your attention to ROV driving and know the vehicle will be right where you left it when you return. Works out of the box with BlueOS or any Ardusub/MAVLINK2REST vehicle. We are ready to help with any other OEM integrations.
Position Tracking:  By default, Tracker 650 sends position delta messages to ArduSub via mavlink2rest. With appropriate ArduSub setup, and user setting of a global origin, QGroundControl can display your vehicle position on its map. Again, we are ready to support other OEM integrations.
Sonar Mosaic Live:  The Tracker 650 is a perfect companion for the Omniscan 450 FS and Ping 360 imaging sonars. With Tracker 650 and Cerulean SonarView software you get real-time live sonar mosaic imaging. You will experience situational awareness rivaling multibeam sonars costing $20,000 to $30,000!

Tracker 650 is fully supported by the SonarView application for configuration and monitoring. In addition to Windows, Linux, and macOS versions, SonarView can run on any modern browser when served directly from SonarLink. SonarLink is a node.js program that can be customized for OEM applications (BlueOS extension version of SonarLink is available now).
