GIB-Lite : small & easy-to-use portable Underwater GPS system

GIB-Lite, the newest of ACSA’s series of Underwater GPS products, offers an affordable solution to users who need accurate sub-sea positioning in a confined area (typically 500 m x 500 m).

GIB-Lite uses smaller, lighter buoy and combines some of the electronics into the antenna assembly. As a result, GIB-Lite is  even easier to deploy and operate than the other GIB systems.

GIB-Lite is already finding applications in ROV operations, marine archaeology, and diver tracking. It has become apparent that the type of application originally envisaged for the GIB-Lite system, has been quickly overtaken by the ingenuity of users to find new and exciting opportunities for it's use.

Where longer ranges are needed than GIB-Lite’s capabilities, GIB-Plus system continues to offer a viable alternative to more traditional approaches, particularly inshore operations and on vessels of opportunity.
