8020 Navigation Controller Unit
The Sonardyne Type 8020 Navigation Controller Unit (NCU) forms part of a data fusion engine, a ‘one-box’ solution designed to meet the complete on-board requirements of any acoustic operation. The NCU is the interface between the in-water acoustic instruments, sensors and the navigation computer which runs the acoustics positioning software. In addition to accurately time-stamping incoming data from external devices such as GPS, the NCU also provides power and communications for ship-borne acoustic transceivers.
