Sonardyne Debuts Modem Field Evaluation Program

March 12, 2014

At the Oceanology International exhibition in London, Sonardyne International Ltd. announced that it is inviting qualifying academic establishments and research institutions to apply to participate in a Field Evaluation Program for its new family of acoustic modems, uComm. Applicants with an upcoming, short-term ocean science project that would benefit from an underwater modem, are invited to submit details to Sonardyne. If selected, the UK-based company will provide a pair of uComm modems on loan for the project’s duration.

On display at this week’s Oceanology International exhibition in London, uComm is a simple to use underwater modem that when deployed, intelligently senses its environment and adapts its configuration to ensure data is transferred in each direction as fast, as reliably and as energy efficiently as possible. uComm can be used in pairs with a single subsea unit communicating with a topside unit, or multiple subsea units reporting to a single topside unit. Subsea and topside units are identical and can be configured in either role. uComm’s extensive feature list, together with attractive pricing, is expected to generate considerable interest.

“We are looking for qualifying organizations to work with us to ensure uComm is put to the test in as many different operational scenarios as possible,” explained Stephen Fasham, a Global Business Manager at Sonardyne. “Applicants can sign-up during Oceanology or after the show via the Sonardyne website. The most interesting projects will receive a pair of uComm units on loan for an agreed period during which time, participants will be invited to give us feedback on the technology’s performance. Our aim is to ensure that novice or expert users alike achieve success with their uComms straight out the box.”
