Applied Acoustic Engineering (AAE) reported that two major product launches are planned for this year’s Ocean Business Conference, both of which are to be demonstrated on board their dedicated survey vessel, the Coral Wind.

In a shift away from their traditional sub-bottom profiling assemblies, AAE will be debuting their latest sparker system, featuring an advanced version of the market leading CSP energy source along with non-wearing and long lasting sparker electrodes on a new Squid sound source.  Designed to minimize the downtime associated with planned maintenance, AAE’s latest concept will provide operational cost savings alongside the company’s dual standards of quality and reliability.

Additionally, Applied Acoustics will launch a new acoustic positioning system to facilitate the accurate relocation of marked subsea targets. Utilizing two-way spread spectrum signal processing within the smallest possible enclosure, this latest development promises unparalleled cost efficiencies for operations where targets are deployed for short periods.

“We’ve designed this new system to obtain vital positioning data for a multitude of everyday subsea operations that include running ocean bottom seismic cables, the position of seismic nodes, and metocean strings like tide gauges and current profilers,“ explained Technical Manager Neil MacDonald, “but with such an easy-to-use, flexible arrangement, intuitive software and a remarkable positioning performance, there are endless applications.”

Also on the stand will be new units from the company’s Fatboy and Seabed range of beacons now with Spread Spectrum technology for added accuracy, and running demonstrations of the latest upgrades to the Easytrak Lite and Nexus software.
