FSI: Two New Products to Find, Recover Autonomous Assets

Falmouth Scientific, Inc. (FSI) is pleased to offer two new products to assist in the relocation and recovery of autonomous underwater systems and assets:   -- SAF-553 Stand-Alone Flasher   -- ELPF-553 Flash-Pinger   These are small, lightweight, battery-powered, intelligent devices that can be mounted directly on AUVs, Gliders, or other underwater equipment for recovery after their mission duration has elapsed. Multiple user-programmable settings allow for selection of delay, timing, flashing, and frequency options which enable use in a variety of different applications.   &n
