Side Scan Mosaic Software
SonarTRX generates georeferenced sonar images for viewing with Google Earth or import to GIS. It supports data from low-cost, off-the-shelf sonar, including fish finders with side scan capabilities or side scan towfish. Leraand Engineering Inc.

Optical Wet-Mate Connector
A hybrid optical-electrical configuration is now available for the eight-channel wet-mate HYDRALIGHT. It incorporates four modular optical contacts and four electrical contacts rated up to 1,000 VAC at 5 A. Qualified to 7,000 m, it has a design life of 25 years and a life cycle minimum of 100 mates and demates. SEACON Advanced Products LLC.

Data-to-Web Modem
The Osprey modem can take data from any Campbell Scientific data logger and broadcast it to a secure website via GPRS/GSM. Osprey can be fitted retrospectively in a suitable weatherproof housing. OSIL.

Diver-Held Digital Gradiometer
The SDG-N300 helps divers locate and track ferrous underwater pipes or cables. Its digital properties allow the sensors to be 'zeroed,' eliminating ambient magnetic fields. By using Navigators Divelog software, pipeline or cable location can be tracked for post-processing and relocation. Shark Marine Technologies Inc.

Navigation Software Upgrade
A free upgrade for Admiral 11.1 and VNS 11.1, this service pack improves automatic identification system targeting and includes raster NV. Charts integration. The software is now able to integrate with a Furuno DFF1 sounder and supports NMEA 2000 AIS Device Priority. Nobeltec Inc.

Engineering Analysis Module
A replacement for CARIS' BEAMS software, Bathy DataBASE 3.2 can import, create and maintain theoretical models of navigational channels or other seafloor areas. The module works with the Bathy DataBASE suite or standalone editor and is free to upgrade to for BEAMS users. CARIS.

Wireless Inclinometer
The Wireless Tilt System records and logs inclinometer data remotely via a multichannel, digital, two-way telemetry system with a range up to 100 m. The weatherproof system has a battery life of up to five years. The device's inclinometer uses an advanced MEMS sensor. Sherborne Sensors.

Piezoelectric Pressure Sensor
Type 211B6 can measure up to 50 psi, has a nominal sensitivity of 100 mV/psi and has a natural frequency of 250 kHz. Hermetically sealed in a welded stainless steel housing, it has high resistance to moisture, corrosion and contaminants. Kistler North America.

Toilets with Retractable Handle
PHII and PHC manual toilets now have retractable lever handles that allow installation in more compact spaces. The handle is constructed from Celcon-engineered plastic and is designed not to break. Raritan Engineering Co. Inc.

Enclosed Spaces Training Program
'Entry Into Enclosed Spaces,' available on CD-ROM, VHS and DVD and via Videotel on Demand, includes six programs about the importance of using the correct equipment and safety procedures. Videotel Marine International Ltd. and Mines Rescue Marine Ltd.

FM-200 Fire Extinguishers
The refillable FG and FD models, which cover areas from 25 to 240 cu. ft. and 150 to 1,500 cu. ft. respectively, both use FM-200, a halon alternative that is safe for people. Both models are designed for combustible, electrical and flammable liquid fires, reaching extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less. Sea-Fire Marine.

Electromechanical Relay Boards
Made for use in high-current switching and digital control applications, the 10-channel DNA-DIO-470 and DNR-DIO-470 are compatible with the Cube and RACKtangle I/O series, respectively. Each channel is rated for continuous operation at 4 A at 30 VDC and 5 A at 125 VAC. United Electronic Industries Inc.

Axial Fans
The Redneck Economy line, which is housed in plastic, is now available in five sizes, from 12 in. to 24 in. inner diameter. The Standard line, which has steel housings, ranges from 12 in. to 48 in. Delta 'T' Systems.

Four-Channel Backplanes
The 40G AdvancedTCA, designed on IEEE 802.3-2008 and IEEE 802.3ba-2010 standards, features a controlled-impedance stripline design of 18 layers in a Dual Star routing configuration. It can achieve a 10 Gbps/link performance. Elma Bustronic Corp.

Waste Oil Recovery and Purification
The Fuel Factory consists of a set of centrifuges driven by an industrial-duty pump that can clean 50 gallons of waste oil per hour for most applications. Designed to run for 24 hrs., it is made to fit inside and just below the edge of a 55-gallon, open-top drum. Dieselcraft Fluid Engineering.

Soundome Extension Kit
Users of the manufacturer's lead screw hoist can extend their soundomes 12 in. deeper into the water with the extension kit, which improves sonar performance by isolating soundomes from variables that can impair acoustic signals. Western Marine Electronics.

Piezoresistive Shock Accelerometer
Endevco model 2262A is available in ranges of 1,000 g pk and 2,000 g pk, with a 500 mV full-scale output. It features a usable frequency range to 5,000 Hz and operates between -18° and 93° C. Meggitt Sensing Systems.
