NOVATECH™ Beacons and Flashers are an integral part of ocean study and exploration. NOVATECH™ Satellite Beacons provide near real-time data and recovery coordinates, via Iridium® or Argos satellites, offering different options to suit individual deployment needs.
NOVATECH™ Iridium® and Argos Beacons are used in a wide variety of submersible and surface applications. During submersible applications, they are attached to underwater equipment such as ROVs, AUVs, UUVs, OBS platforms, deep-sea moorings, and scientific equipment. When the equipment returns to the surface, the Satellite Beacon starts transmitting automatically to provide a satellite signal to assist in the recovery of the equipment. They can also be used during surface projects for a number of applications.
The NOVATECH™ AS-900A Argos Beacon contains an ARGOS system transmitter, designed as a ruggedized incident-alerting system for oceanographic applications, anywhere in the world.
The iBCN is the next-generation of MetOcean’s NOVATECH Iridium beacons, designed for tracking and locating assets.
The NOVATECH MMA-7500 is a deep rated, small form-factor, self-contained Argos locator beacon.
The NOVATECH IR-7300 Iridium beacon is a ruggedized incident-alerting system, designed to protect valuable oceanographic assets
