Applied Acoustics’ range of acoustic positioning beacons is one of the most extensive available from any manufacturer and includes very small models, the Micro Beacons, for use in shallow water or where space is limited, up to the Seabed Beacons operating in deep, noisy or difficult environments.

The range offers a host of benefits for a multitude of marine positioning applications, with models specifically designed for challenging tasks during subsea operations. Each unit combines durability with ease of use.

For true versatility and cost-effectiveness, every beacon in the range has been designed to be immediately compatible with almost all industry standard tracking systems operating worldwide.

Additionally most beacons can operate as a Transponder, an acoustic beacon which transmits on receipt of an acoustic interrogation pulse, a Responder, an electrically triggered acoustic beacon, or a Pinger, which regularly transmits acoustic signals until the power supply is exhausted.

Applied Acoustics’ beacons are widely accepted for quality and reliability throughout the world, in many industry sectors and in diverse applications.
