From whales to penguins
Our SeaTag line incorporates a compact, low-drag and especially low-cost PSAT for various tagging studies. From whales, sharks, deep-sea tuna, penguins, sea-turtles, lobster and other sea life, our tags offer specialized functions for mortality studies, migrations tracks, ocean current analysis and more.
ARC-1XD and ARC-2
Acoustic releases represent the end of whale entanglements, and a bright future for species like the Northern Right Whale. Acoustic releases also support large underwater inventory retrieval and a host of benefits for POT fishermen.
microMARS and SonarPoint
Passive under-water acoustic recording offers scientists new insights into the marine world. With a modular design, easy-to-use yet effective functions like localization in array systems, our recorders ofer a low-cost yet highly functional recording system. Available in many deployment styles, arrays also offer use in the energy sector, and ocean defense applications.
