PRISMM2018 Tom array
The newly developed "3-D-V" array, a fully-digital 3-D, volumetric towed array. This system is undergoing small boat field tests. Tom Norris recently gave a presentation of progress on this effort at the recent Effects of Sound in the Ocean on Marine Mammals (ESOMM) meeting in The Hague, The Netherlands. This summer we completed the first systematic line transect survey of marine mammals in outer coastal waters off the west coast of Canada. Bio-Waves was responsible for all passive acoustic monitoring for this historical DFO-Canada sponsored survey. Click here  for more details on this effort. SonarPoint is a system of affordable, modular autonomous recorders recently developed with ONR funding in collaboration with our partner, Desert Star Systems
