Missed the Boat?

Life’s like that! Soon after we finalised and printed our latest brochure a new family joined our portfolio – we just missed the boat. If you have applications that could benefit from using remote controlled or autonomous unmanned surface vehicles (ASV/ USV) then please talk to us.
This new range of autonomous boats allows efficient and safe monitoring, surveying and water-sampling. Several sizes (1.15 – 4.0m) are available with a choice of optional features and functions, suitable for the required task and intended location. An ADCP or single beam sonar may be fitted to the hull and water quality sensors may also be included. In addition, a programmable sampling system can collect water into several bottles held on-board, contained in an easily removable carry-case. You can find an overview of the range in our data sheet download section.

Sonar so good

The latest range of products available from Swale Technologies include Echo Sounders, Sub-bottom Profilers and Side-Scan Sonars (single and multi-beam). The latter are available with single or dual frequency transducers ranging from 100kHz to 1250kHz and 3 different size towfish. There are two sizes of multi-beam towfish for 3 or 5 beams, operating at 455kHz. All accessories are included including dedicated software, though the data are compatible with Hypack, SonarWiz and GeoDAS. There are three different towfish for the sub-bottom profilers, depending on the depth of penetration required. please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Pro-Oceanus sensors

If you’re looking to make dissolved gas measurements then look no further than Pro-Oceanus.  They make partial pressure sensors for carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and a sensor for total gas tension – useful to determine nitrogen content when used in combination with dissolved oxygen measurement. They’re all available as standalone data loggers as well as sensors for integration.

Swale is Listening!

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve just completed an agreement to represent RTsys – the French manufacturer of ambient acoustic noise monitoring instruments for Marine Mammals, Seismic, Shipping and Construction applications.
RTsys have been established for just 4 years but with the backing and resources of a larger company of 30 years standing in the marine field, they have utilised their leading edge technology to become a major participant in the field of Passive Acoustic Monitoring.
Key features that set them apart include excellent signal-to-noise ratio, 24 bit sampling resolution, multiple hydrophone channels and swap-out data storage. In addition, depth rating up to 4000m, a dynamic range of >100dB, a frequency range from 3Hz to 1000 kHz and intuitive powerful software all make for a compelling case to choose RTsys.
