Abstract
SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that not to impose hazard to marine life. It is equipped with built-in security to avoid detection and capture by adversaries.
