LinkQuest rolls out the world's smallest DVLLinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California, recently rolled out the NavQuest 600 Micro DVL, the world's smallest Doppler Velocity Log.

In its standard configuration with pressure housing, NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is about 12.6 cm in diameter, 17.0 cm in length and weights less than 1.2 kg in water. In the OEM configuration without pressure housing, the NavQuest 600 Micro DVL weighs less than 0.8 kg. It is by far the smallest and lightest Doppler Velocity Log in the market. The NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is capable of reaching up to 100 meters in maximum altitude (range) with an accuracy of 0.2% +/- 1 mm/s. LinkQuest's innovative acoustic Doppler technology also achieves the smallest minimum altitude of up to 0.3 m which allows robust navigation very close to the seabed. The standard depth rating of the Micro DVL is 800 meters with options for 1500, 3000 and 6000 meters.

The NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is an excellent choice for precision navigation and positioning of smaller underwater vehicles with space and weight being a premium.
