AquaMap Shiphull

US Domestic Price List

May 2015

This product is still available for sale, but is considered a “legacy product.” This product will be replaced by the SouthStar system.

ShipHull systems come in a variety of configurations for both divers and ROV. We have included one configuration to demonstrate which components are required for a system. The system components are available in 100psi, 250psi, or 500psi as standard options. If your requirement falls outside of these options please let us know and we will quote you based on that.

The system is available in non-standard frequencies such as 8-16kHz and 16-24kHz. If you have a specific job and require certain features, whether that is hardware or software, please call or email us. We are happy to outfit your system according to your needs.

All professional equipment includes a one year manufacturer’s warranty; additional warranty can be purchased. Any tampering (such as self repairs) with the components will cancel any previous or future warranty repairs. The prices below are for Domestic orders, within the USA; all orders shipped outside of the USA please add 10% (training prices are for domestic orders only). Manufacturers wanting to integrate systems into their vehicles, please contact Josh Reed-Doyle at:

Baseline Stations
RBS-1H The RBS-1H is the standard baseline station used with ship hull tracking.

This version offers a larger separation between stations because it operates in the 16-24kHz band.

Use when doing inspections on two boats at the same time in near proximity. 

Charger and configuration box for up to 5 units

Note: The pricing listed is per station; you will need at least four to operate the system.  We recommend having a spare as well.


The VLT-1H is the standard transponder for ROV operation. It is used in conjunction with the DS-3 for diver tasks.

This can be used with divers or ROV. The diver does not need a DS-3 unless they want to track their own position underwater.


This operates only with the RBS-1HMF stations.

Used only with the RBS-1HMF.


The DS-3 is a hand-held diver station. It allows the diver to see where he has already been as well as where is currently is.

This can be used with divers so that they know their location and what they’ve inspected.

 Note: With each DS-3, you will need a VLT-1H.  The price reflects just the price of the hand-held solution.


DiveBase ShipHull “paints the hull” as the diver or ROV moves along insuring that the entire hull has been inspected.

 Note: The ShipHull software was first introduced at Hullsfest where it received high recognition. Since it has been heavily used by several ROV manufacturers, most notably VideoRay.
