Multiple USBLs Ordered by Japanese Naval Forces - 13/04/2012

The Japan Maritime Self Defence Force (JMSDF) has awarded a major contract to Applied Acoustic Engineering (AAE, UK) for the supply of a number of USBL tracking systems and associated equipment.

Following sea trials in Japan and a competitive tender process, JMSDF took the decision to invest in seven of AAE’s Alpha Portable systems after witnessing and accepting the key criteria of tracking stability, portability and ease of use. Predominantly intended for use with its naval search and rescue dive teams, JMSDF has also specified AAE’s 210 Micro/Remote transponders as the ideal beacon to attach to its divers.
