Ocean Sonics Coastal Acoustic Drifting Buoy

Applications:

  • Marine mammal monitoring

  • Real-time noise measurement

  • Environmental assessment

 

Designed with ease-of-use in mind, the buoy is compact and lightweight and easily deployed without the use of a davit or crane, weighing just 23KG and measuring 1 meter long and 0.5 meters wide.

 

Features:

  • Built-in Rechargeable batteries w/8hr capacity

  • ON/OFF Switch for icListens and Buoy

  • GPS Time Sync

  • Hydrophones synchronization within 1 microsecond.

  • Wi-fi for Real-time Set Up, Status, and Spectral Display

  • Acoustically quiet design   

  • Weight: 23KG

  • Dimensions (1m x 0.5 m)

  • Configuration up to 6 icListens per buoy

  • Selectable cable lengths using smart cables

  • Remote Wi-Fi access up to 100m

 

This drifting buoy is specially designed to be acoustically quiet. While drifting, it excels at reducing flow noise, even in fast moving water. For example, the buoy mitigates the flow noise generated near tidal turbines to improve clarity and quality of recordings. The buoy is exceptional at capturing desired ocean sounds without interruption or interference from the buoy or its mooring.

 
The Ocean Sonics buoy adapts/scales easily to any project and is compatible with any of Ocean Sonics icListen Smart Hydrophones or Hydrophone Arrays or other Ethernet-controlled systems.  With configuration for up to 6 hydrophones and selectable smart cable lengths, the new Ocean Sonics Drifting Acoustic Buoy offers a user-friendly, effective solution for coastal acoustic monitoring.
 

ic Listen HF

The flagship icListen HF is now recognized as the new standard in broadband digital marine acoustics.

Use it to stream data, log data, or both.

Ocean Sonics icListen Hydrophones are available in 200m, 3500m, and 6000m depth rated housings. 

High Frequency Applications Include:

Environmental Monitoring
Ambient Noise Measurement
Marine Renewable Energy
Pipeline Leak Detection
Ocean Observatories
Marine Mammal Monitoring
Ocean Noise Measurement

ic Listen HF-X2

The X2 offers all the same features of the standard icListen HF but with its reduced analog input gain, it records peak sound levels greater than 210 dB re.uPa without clipping or saturating. 
Use the Event Detection feature to ensure loud events are recorded or send an event message when a preset sound level is exceeded.

Applications Include:

*Pile Driving
*Dredging
*Construction Noise
*Explosions
 

icListen AF

The icListen AF extends the low frequency ultra low noise performance of the respected icListen LF up into the Audio Frequency range.  The AF comes with all the features of the icListen HF, including spectral processing, event detection, PPS synchronization, and the powerful Web Server available on the Ethernet interface Play deep-ocean sounds from icListen AF through your PC speakers using the Lucy software, in real-time.

Like the icListen HF, the new AF is compatible with many radio systems, including GSM, ISM and satellite.

 

Audio Frequency Applications Include:

*Marine Mammal Monitoring
*Earthquake & Tsunami Monitoring
*Shipping Noise Measurement
*Ocean Observatories

icListen HF with Reson Sensors

The 900m depth rated broadband Smart Hydrophone is based on the TC4059 sensor. Frequency range is 10 Hz to 204 kHz with the upper limit software selectable. This product gives Reson users the performance they expect, integrated with the industry leading icListen Smart Hydrophone. The SB9 includes all the signal processing, event detection, large memory recorder and streaming features found in the icListen HF family of products.

 

Applications Include:

Environmental Monitoring
Ambient Noise Measurement
Marine Renewable Energy
Pipeline Leak Detection
Ocean Observatories
Marine Mammal Monitoring
Ocean Noise Measurement
