Seimac Expands the Novatech Product Line

Friday, June 17, 2005
Seimac recently released the Novatech beacon, the AS-900A ARGOS Beacon. “While Seimac’s traditional Novatech beacons are mostly used to assist in location and recovery of assets at sea over search zones of up to 10 nmi or so, the AS-900A beacon provides a truly global alarm capability via satellite for unexpected surfacing of payloads or unexpected deep sea events anywhere in the world”, said Paul Adlakha, Manager, Marketing and Sales.. The AS-900A beacon can be deployed with ocean bottom sensors or on platforms down to 7,300m and remain there for up to two years. Once at the surface the beacon transmits an identification and position message for up to 30 days. This message can be sent to notify clients located anywhere as long as there is phone or internet access.
