High-Speed Radios
MM2-HS-T (TTL interface) and MM2-HS-P (Ethernet interface) are capable of an over-the-air speed of 1.23 Mbps. The MM2-HS-T has a 50.8 by 36 by 9.6 mm footprint with a weight of 14 g, and the MM2-HS-P is 101 by 51 by 13 mm with a weight of 42 g. FreeWave Technologies.

Global-Ku Marine Stabilized Antenna
The OrSat-G can now support the connectivity requirements of different satellites worldwide. The enhanced capabilities are based on ABS, co- or cross-polarization, different power limitations, and Global LNB. Orbit Technology Group.

Pilot House Display
This display has a 19-in. LCD that offers a 0 to 100 percent brightness control feature, allowing the operator to dim the brightness for very low-level light conditions. The display is enclosed in an aluminum chassis and includes a heavy-duty base that can be hard-mounted to the wheelhouse console or pendant-mounted from the ceiling if required. All electronics are conformal-coated to protect against corrosion. Comark Corp.

Subsea LED Lights
High-output, multipurpose LED lights come in 4 sizes (20, 60, 120 and 240 W, equivalent to 50, 150, 300 and 600 W halogen). They have an expected operating lifetime of 50,000 hours. The 20 W light has a depth rating of 1,500 m and the 60, 120 and 240 W lights are rated to 3,000 m. The lights can be regulated from 0 to 100 percent light output and the color temperature and lens angles can be set. Imenco AS.

The PILOT AUV is 10 ft. long and 5 ft. wide and has a depth rating of 1,000 ft. It has vertical thrusters, allowing it to operate in freshwater and seawater, and its fully integrated autonomous launch and recovery capability eliminates the need for surface recovery personnel. It has a payload capacity of 250 lbs. Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors.

Water-In-Fuel Alarm Module
Watect 550 works with many common water probes and sensors to detect water in diesel and in other fuels. It is designed with a flexible 12/24 VDC power input and is protected against reverse polarity, overvoltage and overcurrent while providing a safe recovery from power interruptions. Algae-X International.

Software for Data Export
DELPH Sonar V 2.7 provides export functionality to Google Earth in sonar interpretation. The same facility is also available in DELPH Mag V 2.7. IXSEA.

Wind-Powered Vent
DS-683WP increases air circulation under a shrinkwrap cover to prevent the development of moisture and mildew and can run 24 h. a day in any climate, as long as there is wind. It moves 30 cu. ft. of air per hour with a 10 mph breeze. Dr. Shrink Inc.

Cone Penetration Testing System
The Seabed CPT uses a hydrostatically compensated cone and is capable of working in depths of up to 3,000 m. With a submerged weight of 5 t., it can achieve a reaction force of up to 20 t. Gregg Drilling & Testing Inc.

Side Scan Sonar
The upgraded System 3000 DEEP has transducers designed for operation at 3,000 m. The outer housing of the System 3000 DEEP Towfish is fabricated from titanium. For extended depth operations, it utilizes extended-length fiber optic cables. L-3 Communications Klein Associates Inc.

Water-Level Recorder
Seaguard WLR is offered in 0 to 30, 0 to 60 and 0 to 300-m standard depth ranges and provides pressure measurement accuracy to '0.04 percent FSO. Like all Seaguard variants, it includes a Windows CE-based data logger with LCD color touch screen. Aanderaa Data Instruments AS.

Cameras for Industrial Applications
These gigabit Ethernet cameras, available in 27 models, each have an industrial casing with a C/CS lens mount and options for a trigger and digital I/Os. The color, monochrome and Bayer models are available in VGA, XGA and SXGA resolutions. Drivers for LabView, Halcon, DirectX, Twain and WDM are included. The Imaging Source Europe GmbH.

Hydrographic Processing System
HIPS and SIPS version 7.0 includes an updated user interface and new back-end multithreading of simultaneous processes. A redesigned 3D window now includes support for on-the-fly editing of 3D surfaces. CARIS.

LVOC Contact Adhesives
Silaprene® low volatile organic content contact adhesives and cements contain less than 250 g/l of VOCs compared to more than 600 g/l of VOCs in traditional solvent-based contact adhesives and cements. Royal Adhesives and Sealants LLC.

Sensors for Shipboard Installation
Rather than requiring a safety barrier for every level transmitter, the low-power digital system of these iCT level, pressure and temperature sensors enables up to 128 sensors to be deployed in hazardous locations while they are supplied from a single safety barrier. In addition, the system has full ATEX certification. PSM Instrumentation Ltd.

Solar Powered Archival Fish Tag
SeaTag-GEO uses Earth's magnetic field to determine latitude and a solar cell for longitude. The solar cell is also used to charge the aerogel capacitor. Desert Star Systems LLC.

Soft Shackles
Softies XL large boat series soft shackles, made from Dynex Dux, a heat-stretched, chafe-resistant Dyneema SK-75 line, are individually pull-tested to 10,000 lbs. and have a lanyard for easy opening, a slip ring for extra security and a self-tightening, spliced loop connection. Colligo Marine LLC.

Portable Pump Kit
The Rule Charge N' Flow™ Portable Pump Kit comes with a 12 V 280 GPH pump, 8 ft. of lay-flat hose, spray nozzle, enclosed battery, AC battery charger, battery clip adapter and a vehicle power adapter. Rechargeable and submersible, the kit also includes a filter for use in submersible modes. 5.5 in. tall and 1.5 in. in diameter, it can handle up to 100 gal. of water per charge. ITT Corp.

Underwater Acoustic Recording Unit
The Marine Autonomous Recording Unit is designed to be anchored to the ocean floor to record marine sounds. It receives signals through a hydrophone that is mounted externally on a 17-in. glass sphere, which contains the electronics and batteries. Digital recordings are stored on an internal hard drive and postprocessed into AIFF files. Cornell Bioacoustics Research Program.

Rugged Touch Screen Computer
Machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and 100 percent sealed, the RhinoTuff™ 840 all-in-one PC is designed to meet MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E environmental standards with standard MIL circular connectors. CodaOctopus Colmek.
