Marine Technology Reporter
Nortek designs, develops and manufactures scientific oceanographic instruments that are used to measure the movement of water in its different forms. For 20 years, the company has produced acoustic Doppler instrumentation, employing innovative processes in its product development and production. Its Doppler Velocity Logs (DVL), used for subsea navigation, and Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP), used to understand physical processes in the ocean such as waves and currents, are utilized by scientists, researchers and engineers at institutions worldwide.
A product of thousands of engineering man-hours, the AD2CP is Nortek’s broadband Doppler signal processing platform (US Patent 7,911,880) and includes a series of innovative elements, which will open doors to new applications and inspire exciting research possibilities. AD2CP broadband combines frequency-modulated transmissions with fast sampling rates and adjustable bandwidth. The result is unparalleled performance in both standard and specialized applications. AD2CP hardware can alternate between multiple measurement modes. One instrument replaces several by offering concurrent or alternating measurements of currents, turbulence, waves and ice. AD2CP recorders will store all raw Doppler and sensor data. Improve data quality by removing contamination from fish or other influences.
