Applications include deepwater AUV navigation, shallow water AUV navigation, ROV station keeping, ROV velocity, altitude and current speed monitoring, manned submersible navigation, and diver navigation. In its standard configuration with pressure housing, NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is about 12.6cm in diameter, 17.0cm in length and weighs less than 1.2kg in water. In the OEM configuration without pressure housing, the NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is about 12cm in length and weighs less than 0.8kg. The NavQuest 600 Micro DVL is capable of reaching up to 110 metres in maximum altitude (range). The smallest minimum altitude is up to 0.3m which allows users to operate their submersibles much closer to the bottom than any competing DVLs working in similar frequencies.
