Sensor Technology Ltd. (SensorTech) designs and manufactures custom acoustic transducers, hydrophones and piezoelectric materials. The company was founded in 1983 and in the early days had a strong focus on research. It has conducted experiments on the space shuttle, the Mir space station and in ocean depths below 20,000 ft. More than 30 years in business it has shifted our focus to industrial applications.
SensorTech produces custom acoustic sensors for companies building systems for mine hunting, sonic ranging, sub-bottom imaging, trawl monitoring, fish tagging, marine seismic exploration and more. It also makes acoustic transducers and hydrophones for use outside the marine environment, for applications such as medical imaging, oil well logging and gas flow measurement. Its history of research and development is the key to its ability to design custom devices for such a broad range of applications and industries.

(1.)  SensorTech manufactures piezoelectric ceramics, including hard and soft PZT meeting the specifications for Navy Types I, II, III, V and VI. 
(2.)  It uses its own ceramics to design and manufacture custom acoustic transducers and hydrophones.  Volumes range from one-offs and prototypes to high volumes, producing as many as 6,000 hydrophones per week, month after month.
(3.)  It designs and manufactures hydrophone preamplifiers and transformers for piezoelectric acoustic transducers.  These components provide the first layer of electronics, simplifying the process of integrating our custom sensors into the systems of our customers.
