|Applied Acoustics unveiled their USBL tracking system at Oceanology International. Called the Easytrak Alpha, it is the introductory and most compact of their range of subsea tracking systems. Built to be used at small vehicle operations or basic diver tracking, Alpha is a condensed and cost-effective system for monitoring close-range subsea targets.|
The Alpha system is centred on a desktop command console connected to the submerged transducer and to the host PC via a USB port. With its own internal GPS receiver, Alpha calculates the target’s position as well as its range and bearing. With the ability to offer hemispherical tracking, Alpha is ideal for shallow water applications from small work boats in coastal waters, estuaries and lakes.
Alpha joins other Easytrak systems in a range of subsea tracking units from Applied Acoustics that offer true flexibility in operation, including a rack-mounted, spread spectrum model and a fully portable version. The support of a wide range of transponders for positioning and release completes the versatility of the USBL systems on offer.
The device will be shown during Seawork in Southampton.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor
Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
