Ocean Sonics rewrites the rule book for gathering underwater sound by introducing the concept of the Smart Hydrophone. Instead of collecting terabytes of raw data, the Smart Hydrophone provides a tool box that lets you collect just the data you need. This saves time, and reduces project risk. Post processing goes more smoothly with high quality data.

The Tech:

In the company’s flagship product, icListen, all the analogue and digital electronics, telemetry, battery and memory are combined into a complete compact hand held instrument. This helps ensure highest possible signal performance and long-term calibration. The icListen Smart Hydrophone can be used as a datalogger, digital hydrophone, or both. Unique in the industry is the instrument’s ability to process and store the data according to the user’s needs. For example, selectively storing of time-series or spectral data based on user configured events that look for energy within certain bands. What this means is that the user can choose how the data is to be collected.
