Subermersible Radio Beacons
MetOcean’s Range of NOVATECH™ Radio Beacons provide an instantaneous signal, once surfaced, which is detectable for up to eight nautical miles. NOVATECH™ Radio Beacons, Iridium® Beacons and Xenon Flashers are used in a wide variety of submersible and surface applications. During submersible applications, they are attached to underwater equipment such as ROV, AUV, and scientific equipment. When the equipment returns to the surface, the Radio Beacon turns on automatically to provide a radio signal to assist in the recovery of the equipment. They can also be used during surface projects, for a number of applications.
Range of Form Factors
Designed to meet unique deployment needs, MetOcean offers five variants of their Radio Beacons: standard self-contained, compact form factor, remote head and a flasher combination. NOVATECH™ Radio beacons provide peace of mind for those unpredictable deployments.
