Having chosen this year’s Ocean Business conference to order its first Nexus 2 USBL system, Subsea Technology and Rentals Ltd (STR) have subsequently presented Applied Acoustics with a second order, doubling its requirement for the tracking systems.

 
Nexus 2 is the second generation two-way digital system designed and produced by the U.K. headquartered company.  Developed with an emphasis on providing optimum performance over an extended operational range, the Nexus 2 creates a reliable and secure acoustic link with low susceptibility to interference.
 
“We’re thrilled that STR has opted to add two of our new Nexus 2 systems to its equipment pool,” said AAE’s Sales Manager, Gavin Willoughby, “so having these available to the worldwide rental market through STR is a great endorsement of the product and an important facet of our company strategy.”
 
STR now offers its clients access to the Nexus 2 system that provides 16 target tracking as well as a new comprehensive range of software features and survey tools such as the common interrogate frequency (CIF), greatly enhanced accuracy and geo-referenced graphical overlay.
 
Scott Johnstone, Managing Director at STR commented, “As providers of specialist marine equipment and supporters of Applied Acoustics’ products we had no hesitation in purchasing two Nexus 2 systems to support our customers’ operations worldwide. STR are keen to develop alliances with well-established manufacturers and these latest acquisitions will be a welcome addition to our growing inventory of high quality subsea equipment.”
