DVL500 Compact - 4000 m

DVL500 Compact - 4000 m

Bottom-Track From 0.3 to 175 M Range; 4000 M Operational Depth

The DVL500-C combines the compact design of the standard DVL1000 with the superior bottom-track range of the DVL500. It can fly higher in the water column and closer to the seabed than similar equipment, enabling small vehicles to do bigger jobs.

Description
