The VEMCO Positioning System (VPS) is an underwater acoustic fine-scale positioning system, capable of providing metres level position resolution of many animals simultaneously. There is no limit to the amount of area a VPS can cover and it can typically run unattended for up to a year at a time. The VPS system is based on VEMCO’s standard off-the-shelf receivers and transmitters used in numerous presence / absence studies worldwide.
