MIPS 2 Model 2785 / 2786
The second generation of Mobile Integrated Positioning System (MIPS) is a family of advanced Ultra Short Baseline (USBL) underwater tracking systems. The high performance ruggedised MIPS 2 transceivers are available in two formats offering hemispherical and directional acoustic footprints for all naval subsea positioning requirements.
The MIPS 2 antenna provides a subsea positioning solution in a compact design for use on naval platforms and environments.
System integration is via a high speed serial link ideal for OEM applications on board both crewed and autonomous vessels.

MIPS 2 Technical Specification
Attitude and Heading Reference Sensor (AHRS) Sensor
Accuracy is based on the correct speed of sound being entered, no ray bending and an acceptable S/N ratio.
DEF STAN 00-35 Part 3: Issue 4 including temperature shock test. CL14
Operation in water -4˚C to +32˚
Operation in air -20˚C to +44˚
Storage temperature -20˚C to +44˚
High ambient temperature operation in air is for short duration system checks only, thermal protection is fitted and the unit will auto shut down.
