icListen RB9

The icListen Smart Hydrophones are the industry’s most sensitive broadband digital hydrophone. This compact, all-in-one instrument processes data while streaming HD acoustic data in real time. Ocean Sonics RB9 model hydrophone is 900m depth rated, outfitted with Teledyne Reson sensor tips, this SMart Hydrophone is ultra low-noise and has a wide dynamic range for high-quality signal quality and stability. Full bandwidth range from 10Hz to 200kHz.

Use icListen as a digital hydrophone, acoustic recorder or both simultaneously. Collect ocean sound data accurately, easily and with confidence. Improve decision making and project success with real-time data.

Gemini 720is – Multibeam Imaging Sonar

Tritech’s Gemini multibeam imaging sonar provides users with real-time, crisp imagery for applications including obstacle avoidance, target detection and close-range inspection. Now with the latest electronics Tritech presents the next generation Gemini 720is imaging sonar. With a 120-degree field of view (10 degree tilt) and a fast update rate of 30Hz, the Gemini 720is sonar is ideal for poor visibility environments. Gemini 720is features a 720 kHz operating frequency and an integrated sound velocity sensor to assist in providing the sharpest image possible, with accurate ranging. Redesigned for ease of install onto a variety of ROVs, AUVs and other underwater platforms, the Gemini 720is operates through Ethernet or VDSL communications. The sonar’s compact size means that it can also be deployed using a pole-mount assembly (customer supplied).

NORTEK Signature 500 ADCP

The Signature500 ADCP is designed for flexibility. It measures current profiles at up to 8 Hz sampling frequency. It can also measure direct vertical velocity profiles, wave height and direction, and ice thickness and drift. The center beam also functions as a biological echosounder, enabling high-resolution measurements of biomass in the water column. All these features can be combined using Nortek’s patented concurrent mode technology.
