LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California USA


Following the successful release of its FlowQuest 300 and 600 acoustic current profilers, LinkQuest Inc., San Diego, California, recently rolled out the long-range FlowQuest 150 current profiler, extending the same innovative and high performance acoustic Doppler technology to lower operating frequency with higher power transmission. The FlowQuest 150 acoustic current profiler is capable of reaching up to 500 meters in range with an accuracy of 1% +/- 5 mm/s, making it one of the very few acoustic current profilers available in the market capable of reaching such a long distance. The standard depth rating of the system is 800 meters with options for 1500, 3000 and 6000 meters. With its capability for significantly longer range, significantly reduced cost to end users and the Data Fusion function for interfacing to multiple third-party sensors, the FlowQuest system is an ideal system for deepwater current and flow monitoring. The FlowQuest 150 current profiler has also been seamlessly integrated with LinkQuest's best-selling deepwater underwater acoustic modems. These modems provide a highly reliable acoustic data link for uploading data from the FlowQuest recorder or real-time monitoring of currents. Click for more FlowQuest information.

LinkQuest Inc. has shipped hundreds of its underwater acoustic modems for applications worldwide in recent months, extending the market dominance of its best-selling acoustic modem based on Broadband Acoustic Spread Spectrum (BASS) technology. LinkQuest has shipped a large number of underwater acoustic modems for long-term fishery and environmental monitoring projects, forming some of the largest undersea acoustic communication networks in the history. Long-range UWM3000 modems were installed for India's large Tsunami monitoring network, sending critical sensor data from the deep sea to surface buoys in real-time. Fugro, Seatronics, Ashtead and other commercial companies have purchased a large number of UWM2000, UWM3000 and UWM4000 modems for offshore oil filed applications. Numerous government organizations, large research institutions and universities, including USGS, NOAA, UK's Southampton Oceanography Centre, South Korea's KORDI, Germany's Baltic Sea Research Institute and National University of Singapore, have also placed orders for various models of underwater acoustic modems. With advanced Broadband Acoustic Spread Spectrum (BASS) technology and unprecedented number of deployments worldwide, LinkQuest's underwater acoustic modems are the world's best proven solutions for underwater acoustic communications.
