Advanced Technologies, Diverse Solutions
For over 40 years Hydroacoustics Inc. (HAI) has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of unique high power, broadband, low frequency underwater acoustic sources based on continuous wave and impulsive source technology. Our products include Hydroacoustic Low Frequency (HLF) sources, Diver Interdiction Systems (DIS), Aquaculture Predator Protection Systems (APPS) and our newest product the Proteus® Series underwater Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs).
HLF-1 systems have been serving a vital role on US Navy submarines in support of anti-submarine warfare for decades. HAI has delivered a number of DIS systems to the Worldwide Navy and Coast Guards to combat the threat of underwater terrorists. The Proteus series ROVs are versatile, battery operated, ROVs utilized in support of safety dive team and marine inspection, salvage and exploration operations.
HAI is the leading provider to the US Navy for HLF sound sources. HAI offers numerous HLF configurations serving a wide variety of commercial markets. HLF transmitters are capable of emitting continuous wave or impulse wave signals thousands of miles. Applications for HLF sources include; communications, seismic exploration, oceanographic data collection, ocean surveillance and many more.
The underwater threat posed by terrorist divers can present a serious risk to maritime assets located in ports and harbors or at anchor. HAI offers both portable and stationary systems. These systems may be integrated into diver detection systems or operate as standalone platforms. Portable systems may be deployed in littoral waters from RHIBs, harbor patrol boats, piers or from ships. At sea, the DIS may be deployed off of the side of the vessel. The DIS releases broadband low frequency acoustic energy which exerts an adverse acoustic bio effect on the suspected terrorist diver/s at a substantial distance from the diver causing the diver to surface at a safe distance where they can be apprehended.
HAI offers the Proteus 500 and the Proteus 1000e ROVs which have depth ratings of 500 ft and 1,000 ft respectively. The Proteus Series of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) represent the latest technology in the areas of underwater exploration, marine inspection (tunnels 6km) and observation, search, rescue and recovery, as well as aiding in the protection of underwater environments through underwater observation. These units are battery operated which eliminates the need for shore or marine power. Because they are battery operated the standard system tether is among the thinnest in the industry at only 3.3 mm, yet has a enormous breaking strength. Proteus Series ROV's are backed by an industry leading 2 year warranty. Ask for the details.
The aquaculture industry is proliferating throughout the world. In some areas the economic output of the aquaculture or aquafarming industry, exceeds that of the commercial or wild fish industry. Pinnipeds, mainly sea lions and seals, are causing significant economic losses to this portion of the industry. Pinniped interactions with fisheries and aquaculture facilities occur throughout the world.
HAI has identified domestic oil production as an industry ripe for successful translation of our accoustic source technology-specifically within the rapidly growing area of enhanced oil recovery (EOR). We are currently in development of the Oil Recovery Tool (ORT), an accoustic source-based down-hole tool for increased oil production and prolonged lifetime of existing wells. The ORT also has the potential for indirect reduction of the environmental footprint of the EOR operations through increased performance and yield per well.
