MTR100: Rowe Technologies Inc.

Marine Technology Reporter
Rowe Technologies Inc. designs and manufacturers ADCPs and DVLs used for measuring currents, directional waves and underwater navigation for shallow coastal environments to full ocean depths. RoweTech provides dual frequency ADCP/DVL and high resolution velocity measurements (0.01 cm/s). RoweTechs’ core team is centered on advanced electronic engineering and signal processing development, as well as acoustic transducer design and development of traditional and multi-frequency piston products and planar arrays.
RoweTechs’ modern electronics platform for ADCPs and DVLs allows for a compact form factor, as well as the flexibility of up to 16 signal processing channels, and a high resolution velocity measurement. RoweTechs’ dual frequency instruments (offered in Piston and Planar Arrays) provide the industry’s only high-resolution near field and long-range low-resolution current velocity measurements on the market. 
A vertical beam can be added to both a single set of Janus-configured beams [SeaWAVE ADPC] or to two sets of Janus-configured beams [SeaSEVEN ADCP]. With RoweTechs’ experience of advanced electronics platform facilitates the development for new and novel applications in underwater acoustic data collection, accurate positioning and surveillance.
Fran Rowe, a pioneer in the development of ADCP, is a technical advisor to the company, whose electronics design is combined with advanced acoustic transducer technology to provide ADCPs that are powerful, compact and extremely flexible. These core technologies, combined with multiple frequency and packaging options, provide a cost effective and capable platform to handle a variety of acoustic Doppler applications. The SeaWATCH ADCP product lines are self-contained (SC) units that operate on battery power and are meant to be deployed for extended durations, while the SeaPROFILER ADCPs are direct-reading (DR) units used for real-time, tethered applications. 
The SeaTRAK vessel-mount family of products consists of a low-frequency Doppler Array (150 kHz, 75 Hz, or 38 kHz) with integrated sonar electronics, interface cable, and a rack-mount power interface unit. The SeaPILOT family of Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) uses the same core electronics and transducer technologies as described above, to provide a versatile platform capable of producing precise bottom-referenced velocity measurements for ROVs, AUVs and other manned/unmanned submersibles. 
The company also offers OEM packages for custom AUVs and ROV applications.
