FSI’s experience includes the design, manufacture, and integration of stand-alone and turnkey systems to collect and relay oceanographic data in real time. Core competencies include system and design engineering; on-site volume production, rapid prototyping, encapsulation, and assembly; and electrical, acoustic and system testing. Its products and systems are used in environments ranging from estuarine to full ocean depths. Besides offering a suite of standard products the FSI team has engineered many custom solutions to meet specific and varied needs.

The Tech

Sensors: The FSI PLUS Family of current, wave, and tide instruments are designed to enhance the ability to measure current speed and direction under difficult conditions, offering the ability to make accurate current measurements in very clear and/or very shallow water, as well as at the surface and sea-floor boundary areas. Data can be acquired in real-time or captured and logged in internal memory. FSI offers shallow (200m) and deep (7,000m) ACM-PLUS current meters as well as options to add an integrated CTD and one or two external sensors. FSI also offers the ACM-WAVE-PLUS which gives 3D currents and wave characteristics, and the WAVE-TIDE-PLUS which gives 1D wave and tide data.
Systems: The HMS-620 Bubble Gun low-frequency, ultra-portable seismic system is designed for small boat shallow water geophysical surveys. FSI also offers sidescan sonar systems, hull mount arrays, and other specialized transducer systems.
