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
