DiveNET: GPS is a portable, self-contained and rapidly deployable wireless wide-area underwater GPS navigation system. DiveNET: GPS provides absolute 3D coordinate sub-meter positioning for an unlimited number of divers and submersible vehicles in a coverage area over 2,000 m in diameter.

​DiveNET: GPS employs four handheld, positively buoyant Acoustic GPS Buoys (AGB) deployed roughly around a dive site to emulate the function of GNSS satellites on the water surface. Equipped with a high rate GNSS receiver, each  AGB sequentially emits own coordinate position at a rate of 1 Hz, providing a 1/sec update rate below the surface. Weighting under 10 lbs each, the AGBs are designed to be easily anchored, weighed down or moored in position.

​DiveNET: GPS features a passive, compact and low power demand Acoustic GPS Receiver (AGR), suitable for integration with either a DiveNET: GPS Diver Navigation Display personal navigation device or a submersible vehicle of practically any form factor.

The Acoustic GPS Receiver is a compact, integrated device coupling advanced signal reception capability with a position computer and water depth/temperature meter. The AGR unit is integration ready with native Serial/USB/Bluetooth connectivity and GPS emulation output providing sub-meter positioning accuracy.

DiveNET: GPS Diver Navigation Display is a personal GPS navigation device integrated with DiveNET: GPS AGR. The device can be worn on the arm or installed on a diver's navigation board with compass. DiveNET: GPS Diver Navigator supports 20 programmable Waypoints, 20 Mark points (POI), dive track download in KML/GPX format, wireless charging and Bluetooth PC connectivity.

​DiveNET: GPS is designed for robust, straight forward operation in real world conditions, requiring minimal configuration and maintenance. The system is supplied with utility software and includes wireless charging, dive track export in KML/GPX format, and Bluetooth PC connectivity.

DiveNET: GPS is depth rated to 140-300 m.
