Able to operate up to 180 days between charges, the EZ Tracker 2.0 terminal has an external interface connector that is used to connect a sensor or panic button and to charge the unit. When the button is activated, the unit will generate an alarm message with the vessel name, latitude, longitude, speed and heading for 4 hrs. Global Ocean Security Technologies.
Diver Communication System
The Amcom I Communicator's PC card has been redesigned to improve battery life to 85 hrs. for the rechargable model and 120 hrs. for the nonrechargable model. Amcom I now comes with MP3 connectors so divers can listen to music while working underwater, a feature that is active only in fourwire mode. AMRON International Inc.

Multichannel Data Acquisition System
Deployable to 2,500 m depth, the Autonomous Multi-Channel Acoustic Recorder Generation 3 (AMAR G3) provides eight 24-bit A/D channels with sampling rates between 4,000 and 128,000 samples/s and gains between 0 and 42 dB. It has eight low-speed A/D channels for nonacoustic sensors. Missions of up to one year are possible. JASCO Applied Sciences..

Acoustic Sensor for Well Monitoring
iDAS (intelligent distributed acoustic sensing system) is capable of digitally recording acoustic waves along many kilometers of fiber-optic cable with up to frequencies of 100 kHz and a range greater that 90dB. It is designed for well surveillance applications (i.e., distributed seismic imaging and well integrity monitoring). Silixa Ltd.

Surface Display Computer
The SDC-10, a surface interface unit for the TSS 440, 350 and Dualtrack pipe and cable trackers, has a 19-in. touchscreen and an anti-shock hard disk drive with a fanless Intel Atom 16GHz CPU. It is housed in a standalone optional VESA-mounted enclosure. Teledyne TSS Ltd.

Seafloor Survey Processing Software
SABERv5.0, an updated version of Survey Analysis and area Based EditoR, supports integration with the Kongsberg/Hydroid AUV's NavP and can process AUV-derived data for seafloor surveys. It also includes a beta version of automated contact detection software, which enables quick processing of side scan sonar records for objects proud of the seafloor. SAIC Inc.
