WFS Tests New Modem At Underwater Centre [Sea Technology]
(Sea Technology Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) WFS Technologies (West Lothian, Scotland) tested its Seatooth S100, a new mobile, wireless subsea modem developed for underwater applications from 1 0O to 4,000 meters, at The Underwater Centre, a subsea testing and training facility in Fort William, Scotland.
The Seatooth S100 was trialed in the Underwater Centre's 1.5-millionliter indoor seawater tank, which allowed the WFS team to observe and monitor their equipment in one location without tidal drift.
The modem can provide a reliable digital wireless communication link or logging device up to a 5-meters range. It is equipped with standard data communication interfaces, making it suited to sensor and underwater vehicle applications. The Seatooth can be deployed on temporary or permanent installations for subsea applications including data logging, upgrading subsea equipment and wireless backup.
