Easytrak Sales Growing
Applied Acoustics has recently announced the sale of its 50th Easytrak subsea tracking system at Offshore Europe, Aberdeen. The system is one of a pair that has been ordered by CaspianLab in Azerbaijan for use in their operations in the Caspian Sea.The first Easytraks were delivered in June 2005, with NIWA, the New Zealand based oceanographic institute, one of the first to recognise the benefits of the Easytrak system. Since then other units have been purchased by international survey companies such as Fugro and Gardline for user in the Gulf of Mexico, West Africa, SE Asia and the North Sea. Further users include police authorities, marine project engineering firms as well as a number of European Navies.
Easytrak is a compact, portable Ultra Short Baseline (USBL) tracking system that uses a multi-element single transducer to send and receive acoustic signals to and from multiple underwater targets from which range, bearing and depth information can be determined.
“We designed Easytrak not just to be reliable but specifically to be user-friendly and uncomplicated, even for a relatively inexperienced user,” explained Gavin Willoughby, Sales Manager, “So we’re pleased that it is proving its worth in so many diverse situations and different applications, including successfully tracking floating targets.” he added.
