Pressure Sensor and Data Logger
With up to 64 GB in storage on a compact flash card, the Wave Gauge Blue can operate for months of continuous or years of burst data logging. Standard pressure ranges are 1, 3 and 10 bars. It is accurate to 2 ppm and has a real-time clock for time-tagging the data. Ocean Sensor Systems Inc.
Iridium Signal Detector
Capable of detecting an Iridium transmission to within 3 ft. of its origin, the iON - Iridium Transmission Detector can last up to 100 hrs. in search mode or 50 hrs. in detected mode on a single, user-replaceable 9-V alkaline battery. The unit is a self-contained, handheld device. JouBeh Technologies Inc.
Thickness Gauge
Based on the original Multigauge 5600, this upgraded version includes a large color display and a new graphic menu. The gauge utilizes the multiple echo technique to ignore coatings up to 6 mm thick and measure only the metal substrate. Tritex NDT Ltd.

Military-Spec VSAT
Designed with a rotating polarizer, the SuperTrack X10Mk3 operates at Rx 7.25 to 7.75 GHz and Tx 7.9 to 8.4 GHz. It includes a brake system, shock absorbers and high-torque motors, and is anodized to eliminate corrosion. The Mk3 platform meets or exceeds military vibration, shock and EMI/RFI standards. KNS Inc.

Wide-Angle Lens
Depth-rated to 50 m, the BigEye Lens M67 Mark II has a 67-mm thread mount that fits over the housing's port, and can be installed and removed during the course of the dive. It features a multilayered anti-reflection coating on both sides of the lens. Its diameter measures 118 mm. Fantasea Line Ltd.

MEMS-Based Inertial System
At 0.05° 3D attitude accuracy, Ekinox Inertial Systems offers tactical-grade MEMS. This series consists of two ITAR-free models: the Ekinox AHRS provides 5-cm heave, surge and sway, and the Ekinox INS delivers 2-cm position. Both accept aiding data from marine external equipment, including DVL, dual-antenna GPS, USBL and EM log. SBG Systems S.A.S.

Dual Wideband Frequency Transducer
Made for applications such as depth-sounding, fish finding or guidance and Doppler speed metering, the 09222/000 piezo-composite transducer has dual ranges of 55 to 89 kHz and 150 to 220 kHz, with a side lobe level of less than -25 dB, compared to -20 dB. Morgan Technical Ceramics.

ECDIS Familiarization Course
Using the Navi-Sailor software running in real time, this training package for the Transas Navi-Sailor 4000 follows the requirements set by flag states and provides 16 to 18 hrs. of study followed by an online test. IMO 1.27 generic training is a prerequisite. SafeBridge GmbH.

Wet Differential Pressure Transducer
Featuring 316L and Inconel X750 material, the AST5300 is made for use in explosion-proof and nonincendive areas. It is suitable for various liquids and gases requiring high line pressure (1,500 psi) and low differential pressure (10 PSID) measurements. American Sensor Technologies Inc.

3D, 4D Visualization Software
Version 1.2 of Makai Voyager geospatial software enables users to import and visualize their scientific and GIS data. Users can now preprocess lidar, GIS and volumetric data from common formats into streamable files. Volume rendering for large 4D data, such as NetCDF, added. It is available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Makai Ocean Engineering Inc.

Watertight Integrity Testing
A semifixed system for monitoring seals for watertight or weathertight degradation, the Permascanner Dynamic can check the seals of doors, holds and hatchcovers while at sea. The main generator is placed inside the hold, attached by magnets. Its battery provides up to 10 days of testing. Coltraco Ltd.

Radar Level Sensor
Designed to work with Valeport's TideMaster tide logger or as a standalone device with optional integrated GPRS telemetry, the VRS20 uses 25 GHz pulsed K-band radar to measure water level to ±10 mm accuracy. Alternatively, it can interface with a third-party data logger. Valeport Ltd.

Echosounder for Fishery Surveys
With upgrades to the ME70 multibeam echosounder's hardware and software (version 1.2.5), beamforming can be carried out on a single computer, rather than six. The update also introduces Windows 7 compatibility and increases the absolute maximum range from 1,000 m to 2,000 m. Simrad.

Nano-Ceramic Lubricating Grease
With a lower coefficient of friction than traditional PTFE greases, DAYLube operates in temperatures from -40° F to 800° F. Lasting for more than 100,000 production strokes, it is ideal for workboats, as well as port-side material handling equipment like cranes, lift trucks and conveyors. Dayton Progress Corp.

Gas Monitoring System
Marine Tankscape, for tankers and reefer vessels, incorporates seven instruments into one and allows up to five gases to be measured and displayed at the same time. It can detect oxygen, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide levels. Its LCD display is backlit. Martek Marine Ltd.

Monochrome CCD Camera
Ideal for very low light level, underwater viewing and navigation, the EXPLORER LITE is fitted with a wide-angle, high-speed, aspherical lens, giving a 103° diagonal field of view. Its housing options are hard anodized aluminum (rated to 1,500 m) or titanium (rated to 6,000 m). Bowtech Products Ltd.

Analog, Digital Data Acquisition Card
The Model 826, a PCI Express I/O board, features six encoder/timer/counter interfaces, 16 differential analog inputs (16-bit, 300 kS/s), 8 analog outputs (16-bit, 900 kS/s), 48 bidirectional digital I/Os with edge capture, three-stage watchdog timer and output fail-safe controller. Sensoray Co. Inc.

Full Environmental Sealing Boot
Resistant to salt spray, sunlight, ozone, weather, and most acids and lubricating oils, the HEXSEAL 1131/60 inverted bellow toggle switch boot can be attached to avoid unintentionally tripping a sensitive breaker/switch on or off. It operates in temperatures from -94° F to 400° F and pressures to 15 psi internal and 1,500 psi external. APM HEXSEAL.

Instrument With Field-Swappable Sensors
A real-time, single-parameter instrument, the Micro•X comes in two configurations: one compatible with sound velocity or conductivity Xchange sensors, and another compatible with temperature, pressure, dissolved oxygen and turbidity Xchange sensors. It offers 25-Hz sampling. AML Oceanographic.

Dual-Port USB Charger
Compatible with any USB 1.1, 2.0 or 3.0 electronic devices, the Hubbell USB Charger Receptacle provides 3 amps of power via two USB ports. It can recharge one tablet computer from 0% to 100% in 5 to 6 hrs. It installs in a standard electrical box deeper than 1.5-in. with internal AC/MC clamps.
