Subsea Technology & Rentals Ltd (STR); global specialists in the design, production and rental of advanced subsea technology for the offshore industry continue to grow their rental equipment inventory with the addition of the Applanix POS MV WaveMaster II.

POS MV WaveMaster II is a user-friendly, turnkey system designed and built to provide accurate attitude, heading, heave, position, and velocity data of marine vessel and onboard sensors. POS MV is proven in all conditions, and is a popular georeferencing and motion compensation solution for hydrographic professionals.

POS MV blends GNSS data with angular rate and acceleration data from an IMU and heading from the GPS Azimuth Measurement System (GAMS) to produce a robust and accurate full six degrees-of freedom position and orientation solution.

Neil Jackson, Sales and Operations Manager at STR, commented: "The POS MV WaveMaster has proven a popular system. Often used in nearshore multibeam survey operations, our customers take advantage of a simple setup and high accuracy performance, therefore making it an easy decision to add further systems to our rental pool.
