Meet Nortek's new Compact DVLs.

The latest developments from Nortek, these DVLs allow users to fly higher in the water column and closer to boundaries with no compromise on size or weight.

Game-changing performance in a compact package.

Nortek's DVLs have long enabled the development of smaller, more powerful underwater vehicles. Our latest DVL offerings take the form factors of our existing DVLs and nearly double their ranges.

These innovations allow AUVs and ROVs to fly higher in the water column than ever before, while maintaining the high-quality navigation our users have come to know and trust. Existing integrations don't need to be redesigned to extend vehicles' performance. 

Want to know more about our DVL offerings? Wondering which one is right for you? Check out the chart below or get in touch with us. One of our DVL experts would be happy to help.
