Tritech International will be presenting exciting, new developments in the field of through-water communications. The new Micron Mini Modem which consumes very little power provides robust, long range, spread spectrum data transmission with an exceptionally low error rate all from an extremely compact and low cost unit.
The Micron Mini Modem can also be integrated into the MicronNav USBL tracking system. It is quick and easy to mobilise as a tracking navigation sensor for ROVs and AUVs of all sizes, as well as a data transmission system. MicronNav is designed to provide 180 degree hemispherical coverage below the transducer, allowing vehicle tracking in very deep or shallow water.
Tritech anticipates the new telemetry products will be a superb solution for many through-water navigation and data communications.
Paul Hudson, International Business Development Manager says:
"We are delighted with the response to date to our MicronNav, which is proving itself as a robust acoustic tracking system. Its reliable performance and integration into our existing Seanet Pro software are real plus points for our customers. In its first six months sales have exceeded our expectations."
"Following on from the MicronNav, our new miniature acoustic modem - capable of 40bps data transmission up to range of 1km - is now ready for release. This extremely compact, low power system is ideal for a variety of subsea acoustic telemetry applications. We are also continuing our work with Wireless Fibre Systems on their exciting underwater electromagnetic technology, such as the combined Radio Acoustic Modem (RAM-300)."
The miniature, subsea, acoustic telemetry product range is being launched at The UUVS (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Showcase) on 23 & 24 September 2008 by Tritech on stand number 456.
