Acoustic Releases

Recognised for their absolute reliability, durability and long operating range, Sonardyne acoustic release transponders have become an important component in the inventory of many scientific, defense and commercial organisations around the world, who rely upon them for recovery of valuable equipment and data.

Whether the water depth is shallow or deep, the load; kilograms or tonnes and deployment; days or years, Sonardyne has the ideal acoustic release transponder.

Lightweight Release Transponders (LRTs) and Lightweight Actuation Transponders (LATs) are compact, low cost units for use in coastal and offshore waters up to 2,000 metres. Applications range from mooring instrument strings and the remote actuation of lift bags through to the recovery of equipment on the seabed using a rope canister.
