Remotely Recover Your Marine Instruments with VEMCO’s Shallow Water Acoustic Release


When researchers deploy valuable marine instruments, they need to know they can be recovered reliably time and again. VEMCO is pleased to introduce the Ascent™ Acoustic Release for shallow water marine equipment deployments.

The Ascent is ruggedly designed for superior performance, reliability and real-time communication and is available in two models: Ascent AR with a battery life of 28 months and Ascent AR-2 with a battery life of 60 months

Communicate from the Surface to Deployed Acoustic Releases
The VR100 Deck Box is used with a transponding hydrophone (sold separately) to communicate from the surface with deployed Ascents and provides easy, remote release of your marine instruments, typically within 30 seconds.

Obtain Real-time Information from Deployed Units
Through a simple interface, researchers will be able to retrieve real-time unit status such as unit health; tilt, depth and temperature; estimated remaining battery life; and much more!
