Restricted operating life, limited range and bearing ambiguity in deep water are the known limitations of current locator beacons mounted on aircraft, ships, black boxes, and other high value and / or critical devices.

DarkWater Acoustics goes beyond deep to solve these problems.

The Simple Cost Effective Fix

Retrofit of Existing Pinger for delay start


The Bottom Line

  • If a delay start is something that is desirable existing pingers can be retrofitted

  • Retrofit would involve a cover over the water sensor

  • The cover would dissolve slowly in water over the delay period

  • Once dissolved water would activate pinger as normal

  • “ status quo” is no longer acceptable

  • Underwater locator beacons can be and should be improved

  • Adaptive and programmable devices will be the Next Generation devices

  • The technology to make this device is here today and not something that needs development

  • The ideas in this presentation are US Patent protected from competition

  • We can lead the way at this opportune time with the—”Next Gen 370” Adaptive Pinger

  • Now is the time to attack the market with a next generation device
