Rental Technology & Services (RTS), a provider of rental equipment for the subsea industry, has added the Exail (formerly iXblue) Gaps M5 USBL acoustic positioning and communication system to its rental pool of equipment. 

This comes as part of the company’s ongoing effort to offer the latest and most innovative solutions to its customers from its newly established UK offices. 

The latest addition to Exail’s USBL product range, Gaps M5 is a compact, export-free, and omnidirectional USBL system that uses acoustic technology to accurately locate and track subsea assets in real-time. Designed for use in challenging environments with shallow water up to 995m water depth, the system offers high accuracy, reliability, and ease of use, making it an ideal solution for a diver, subsea asset, or inspection ROV horizontal tracking.

Available for RTS customers globally, Gaps M5 addresses accuracy and performance needs, and requirements for vertical and horizontal tracking applications.


“We are grateful to RTS for their renewed trust and continued support of our underwater navigation and positioning technology,” said Maverick Piccininni, Regional Sales Manager at Exail. “As a leading provider of rental equipment, RTS is committed to providing the highest quality solutions to its customers, and the addition of our Gaps M5 USBL system to its rental equipment fleet is a testament to that commitment. We look forward to seeing our Gaps M5 USBL systems deployed in the field and supporting RTS customers globally.”

“By bringing the Gaps M5 USBL system to our UK office, we are once again looking to respond to what we know our customers are demanding,” said Dale Townend, UK Technical Manager at RTS. “This investment in the new Gaps M5 USBL systems and MT9 transponders represents a valuable addition of assets that we haven’t previously held in our rental pool. We are excited to now have access to these advanced systems going forward, continuing our close relationship with Exail, and supporting our customers’ project requirements for accuracy and efficiency on a global scale.”

The Gaps M5 USBL system is available for rent immediately and is backed by RTS’s experienced team of technicians and support staff.
