Applied Acoustic Engineering (AAE) in the UK and iXBlue, a global leading provider of navigation and positioning solutions, have released details of a formal working relationship between the two companies, permitting cross compatibility between their acoustic positioning products to create a greater degree of flexibility across a wide market area.

Conceived during 2013 and approved earlier this year, the agreement allows Applied Acoustics’ complete range of 1000 Series transponders to operate with iXBlue’s GAPS USBL systems using a jointly developed set of acoustic protocols.

Speaking on behalf of Applied Acoustics, Managing Director Adam Darling stated, “This collaboration represents a significant step forward for both companies, giving us the ability to service new clients whilst adding extra versatility to our existing product ranges. I look forward to a long and successful partnership and to providing long term benefits to our joint customer base.”

According to Christian Giroussens, VP of iXBlue’s Acoustic Products Division, “The established cooperation between our companies allows the variety of GAPS compatible beacons to expand, for instance with high directivity / high source level beacons, and therefore provides our customers with an enhanced solution in very difficult environments. For sure, the joint experience of both companies will create value for the entire community of USBL users.”
