NOVATECH products have been proven throughout the world’s oceans and trusted around the globe for over 40 years.

The NOVATECH MMB-1000 is a small form-factor, lightweight, self-contained VHF radio locator beacon. Introduced as part of the new Mini-Beacon line, the MMB-1000 has been added to the NOVATECH family of asset recovery devices. The new digital circuit controller offers selectable preset frequency channels, along with a range of duty cycle options, resulting in a beacon that can be configured for a range of broadcast specifications.

Powered with Lithium, this miniature recovery aid is designed for long term ocean deployments (up to 5 years submerged), with enough power to transmit for up to 20 days once surfaced. The Mini-Beacon housing includes an integrated conductivity sensor that isolates the unit’s power while submerged and activates the device upon surfacing.
