Diver-held Sonar Imaging: Shark Marine's New System

Press Release
Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Shark Marine introduces the PRO-MAG, Overhauser Proton Magnetometer for the ”Navigator” Sonar Imaging & Navigation System.

The New MAKO DDS, tested by the US Navy and added to the AMU list, will be introduced by Shark Marine Technologies Inc. in a presentation of Computer Guided Diver Delivery Systems at Underwater Intervention 2013, Wednesday January 16 beginning at 8:30.

A Shark Marine SeaSAR system consisting of sidescan sonar, scanning sonar, pole mounted multi-beam and a couple of Navigator diver held sonars (all operated by a single computer program) were just recently deployed in Long Beach California for harbour security and SAR operations. The following comments are from the head of the Police Dive Team following their training:
 
 "Just wanted to let you know that we finished up with the training today and could not be happier.  All of the equipment, software and training expertise from Mike exceeded our expectations.  All the conversations I have had with you, hundreds of visits to your website, all the documentation you sent us, talking with other purchasers of this gear did not do justice for what the product is really worth to our team.
 
It is by far the most useful and easiest to use, technical system of dive gear now in our inventory.  Each one of my divers agreed that the Navigator at the minimum, will be loaded on the truck for every dive.  Over the years we have been to quite a bit of training but this is the most I have seen my guys involved and genuinely excited about the gear.  Right away its effectiveness and immediately trusted the product that it would do what it's suppose to do without having to be a rocket scientist to run it.
 
Please extend our gratitude to your engineers and everyone else who is behind making this type of product available."
