Easytrak Alpha and Alpha Portable are introductory compact versions of the Applied Acoustics range of USBL tracking systems that are ideally suited for small subsea vehicle operations or basic diver tracking.
The Alpha system is centred around a desktop command console. The innovative and carefully considered design allows it to be deployed in minutes, even by an inexperienced user. Connection to the host PC running Easytrak Alpha software is direct from the console via a USB port.
At the heart of the Alpha Portable system is the console, a yellow marine grade splash-proof case containing all the electronics for the USBL system, including internal GPS, a full size keyboard, large LCD display and built in battery. Transponders and responders are supported through a number of pre-defined channels, with switchable interrogation.
Both systems have a lightweight transducer that incorporates heading and tilt sensors and offers hemispherical tracking making it ideal for shallow water applications. The transducer cable is pre-moulded to the transducer, removing the need for a separate connector.
