DETECTOR-1000 is a very efficient, long range acoustic detection system for locating acoustic pingers. It can cover very large areas in a small amount of time speeding up search operations.

Key features

  • Extremely long detection range (typically 4 to 5 km for black boxes)
  • Simple and robust
  • Easy to use, even in poor weather
  • Immediate deployment from various platforms: vessel of opportunity, helicopter, submarine, inflatable boat etc.
  • Equally suitable for deep water and shallow water
  • Intuitive and user friendly interface
  • Increased coverage speed (by a factor of 20)
  • Dramatically reduced Search and Recovery costs
  • Recorded signals can be made available for Post Processing and use by Investigators (optional)
  • Isolates natural sounds such as whale song to accurately locate a beacon

Applications

  • Search and Recovery operations : Underwater Locator Beacons (ULBs), NATO aircraft pingers and distressed submarine signal
  • Drug enforcement: detection and localization of underwater drugs canisters
