AirTag-13

The AirTag-13 (approximate weight in grams) is the first of our bird tags. We are currently looking for Early Adopters. Early adopters are like beta testers to an extent. They really drive the initial development and steer development into this direction or that direction. The initial ~13g dimensions are 51mm L x 21mm W x 16.5mm H. The tag will initial only transmit short Argos-only positions. It is equipped with two rigid solar panels, a small capacitor pack, and several mounting holes. This allows the tag to be attached either by harness or epoxy. Prices are subject to change but we anticipate costs between $1,000-2,000 depending on quantity purchased.

APA System

APA is an unobtrusive heads-up system specifically optimized to guard against low and out of air emergencies, a major cause of diving accidents.

APA works under and counteracts the circumstances that can lead to such accidents including diver task loading, difficult dive conditions, over-concentration on task leading to inattention, diver communication problems or a cutting of margins on account of a desire to complete work or peer pressure.

AquaMap Diver

AquaMap™ Diver provides a highly precise and rigorously quality controlled navigation, mapping and electronic observation recording capability for free-swimming divers. Following deployment of three or four small baseline stations around the perimeter of a work site and automatic acoustic system self-calibration and/or GPS fixing, AquaMap™ Diver is ready to go. The diver is outfitted with a small graphics terminal, indicating current position against a chart display.

AquaMap Seafloor

AquaMap™ Seafloor is a highly precise and robust survey system for sea floor work in shallow water and the deep ocean up to 6000m depth alike. With a simple setup of three or four small baseline stations deployed on the sea floor around the perimeter of a work site, an interrogator mounted on the ROV, AUV or manned submersible and an acoustic self-survey capability, this system is deployed and ready to go in minutes. 3D position accuracy is generally in the tens of centimeters, and is verified by a position error indicator for real-time quality control.

AquaMap Shiphull

AquaMap™ ShipHull is an underwater positioning system that is specifically optimized for the in-water inspection of hulls, dams and other vertical structures by ROV, diver or AUV. Four small baseline stations are lowered into the water, two on the starboard and two on the port side. Use any diagrams or plans of the ship, which are captured with a digital camera, and scaled using the supplied software. The target position is shown against port side, starboard side or bottom views of the vessel, and as the survey progresses a position trace "paints the hull".

ARC-1XD

The ARC-1XD 'extended duration' acoustic release is specifically optimized for the operation and remote recovery of large inventories of underwater equipment. The release is simple in design and use. It provides the operator with real-time status feedback, and then uses a very fast acting mechanism to reliably recover the payload.

DiveTracker SCOUT

Years ago, we developed the DiveTracker as a buddy locater; the goal was to be able to return to your buddy when you wanted to re-group. However, various other applications became apparent and before we knew it recreational divers were knocking on our door. Typical tasks include marking of underwater objects, safeguarding and recovery of underwater instrumentation and vehicles, general diver navigation and emergency pingers for divers.

FrogEye

FrogEye™ is a comprehensive, rugged and easy-to-use long-standoff image reconnaissance system optimized for use by Special Forces, Coast Guard and Law Enforcement. It was originally developed for the U.S. Special Operations Command and has since found use with Special Forces teams throughout NATO and in the Far East. Built to perform as a rugged digital day and night vision camera, the system also includes remote and autonomous capabilities including wireless data transmission over tens of kilometers, wired transmission without detectable RF signature and autonomous capabilities including time and sensor trigger.

microMARS

Combine microMARS with our ARC-1 acoustic release, and you have a complete, miniature sized acoustic monitoring package for significantly less than an acoustic recorder alone otherwise costs. Attach a SeaTag or PERC device and you have a way to physically locate a device that has gone "missing" (for example: the equipment could have been caught up in someone's fishing gear, moved several kilometers away, and eventually lost.)

PERC-1

PERC-1 is an electronic timed underwater release device offering a combination of precision release timing with one second accuracy, a powerful, kinetically driven release action, a compact size and economy that supports large scale use. As a reliable one-time (or in some cases few-times) use device, PERC-1 is suitable as a backup release mechanism. On account of its low cost, it may be used as a disposable primary release device.

PILOT System

PILOT combines the versatility of a USBL system with the survey-grade capability of a long baseline (LBL) system in one compact configuration. Set it up within minutes and without the needs for transducer poles or other heavy gear. Operate from a small vessel for basic tracking of a ROV or divers, from a working boat for precision pipeline inspection, or from a dock to survey a harbor basin with full 3D position accuracy in the tens of centimeters. Accuracy improves with the spacing of the three small over-the-side transducers, yielding the performance and robustness of a LBL system when working from a larger vessel, while providing USBL like performance on a small boat.

RangeNav

RangeNav™ is a transportable underwater tracking range designed to suit the increasing demand for testing and operations in the near-shore (littoral) environment. RangeNav™ can be truck transported to an operations site, and then deployed using local vessels of opportunity and manpower. The system is rugged, yet comparatively inexpensive and is designed for ease of operations. Tracking can be the size of a football field, or extend up to a few hundred square kilometers in the theoretical maximum build-out.

SAM-SET

The simple acoustic modem (SAM) is ideal for underwater data transmission at low to moderate speeds and distances up to 1000m (open water conditions). The robust and reliable technology will operate in multi-path intensive harbor basins, shallow waters, and reefs as well as in the open ocean environment. In contrast to high-speed acoustic modems, the SAM devices are much smaller, consume less power, are inexpensive, and work well in noisy environments.

SeaTag-GEO

The SeaTag-GEO pop-up satellite tag is an ideal and very capable tool for migratory studies of both commercial and non-commercial species. It is the smallest pop-up satellite tag offered by any manufacturer. At just 40g, it is suitable for animals of as little as 1kg in weight. It is also the least expensive PSAT available. This means that with a given given budget you can purchase four to five times as many tags. And that of course translates to a much larger study size and greater confidence of the results.

SeaTag-LOG

The archival SeaTag-LOG is a great choice for commercial species, marine mammals, turtles and similar where the physical return of the tag after some time on the animal is realistic.

SeaTag-MOD

In addition to answering the most basic question, "What is the migration pattern of this species?" the SeaTag-MOD™ modular pop-up satellite tag provides a detailed representation of what happened along the way through its built-in depth, accelerometer, magnetometer and temperature sensor.

SeaTag-SAM

SeaTag-SAM now offers a viable ARGOS tag alternative to conventional tagging. Priced at under $500 in high quantities, the tag is specifically optimized for stock assessment and mortality in pelagic species. The tag detects mortality based on temperature and light observations, including the maximum temperature gradient, low temperature exposure and extended period of darkness. It tracks fish migration through light and surface temperature observations. An energetic mechanism provides reliable pop-up. Solar powered, the tag then provides a pop-up position, a mortality status code and an archival record of summaries including position estimates and sensor readings for each day at liberty.

SeaTag-TT

In June 2012 we began work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to develop a small Argos transmitter. This project was funded as a Phase III SBIR Contract "to design, produce, and participate in testing of a small solar powered Argos satellite tag for sea turtles."
