These are extremely small, lightweight, battery-powered, intelligent devices that can be mounted directly on AUVs, Gliders, or other underwater equipment for recovery after their mission duration has elapsed. Multiple user programmable settings allow for selection of delay, timing, flashing, and frequency options which enable use in a variety of different applications.
The Stand-Alone Flasher uses high power, high color-temperature LEDs for optical flashing, and the Flash-Pinger adds a pinger transmitter for acoustic tracking below the water surface. Several housing types are available to meet different depth requirements from 100m down to 1,000m.
The MCR-554 Echo-Angler is 16-channel acoustic receiver used for relocating acoustic sound sources. Using the latest in underwater acoustic technology, the MCR-554 allows the tracking and recovery up to 16 different acoustic Pingers which emit industry standard acoustic frequencies.
