EvoLogics S2C Beacon
Available in Q2 2014:
Any S2CR underwater acoustic modem can be configured as an S2C beacon - a compact battery-powered device with built-in acoustic release mechanism and floatation collar.
With EvoLogics' patented S2C technology, the beacon is a great communication and positioning performer, optimized for short- and mid- term deployment and easy recovery back to the surface. As a transponder for LBL or USBL positioning, an underwater communication network or relay chain node, the S2C beacon can benefit multiple marine applications.
The Acoustic Release is now available as OEM version!
- Transponder for LBL and USBL positioning
- Autonomous relay station
- Autonomous underwater network node
