Booth No. Aquatec Group Aquatec are designers of underwater instrumentation, with a range of products covering applications in the ocean science and offshore energy sectors. On display for the first time at Oceanology will be: AQUAmodem Op1 ? an under-water optical modem designed toassist ROV operators to communi- cate transparently with subsea instru- mentation without making physicalconnectionsLEAKlog ? a range of underwater leak detection equipment, includinglong range fluorometers for the detec- tion of dyes and hydrocarbons, as well as acoustic and thermal leak detection probes HYDROlog ? subsea process pressure and temperature. AQUAmodem 500 ? data acqui-sition (temperature, pressure, CP potentials, etc) Subsea Tracking & Seismic SurveyApplied Acoustics will be exhibitingits range ofsubsea track-ing and seis-mic survey equipment with several new addi- tions. Complementing the series ofEasytrak USBL tracking systems willbe the new compact version, the Alpha Portable, and adding to the sub-bottom profiling range will be an innovative triple boomer, the S-Boom that will significantly increase pene- tration without loss of data quality. Booth No. ASCA: SeaExplorer Glider TheSeaExplorer glider hasrecently demonstratedoutstandingperformances in freezing environment (-2°C) in Swiss fresh water lake and in rough conditions at sea. Main characteristics are: large interchangeable payloads, dedicated nose cone including 4 puckports, good maneuverability and wingless concept. SeaExplorer is pow- ered by rechargeable batteries only. Booth No. B300 AXSUB AXSUB designs, fabricates and sup-plies tools to the commercial diving and hyperbaric industries.
