This is the first small production batch of the brand new wireless Locator-S1 which has been thoroughly tested and approved for shipping to customers!
Mass production of Locator-S1 will start immediately and we expect to fulfil all orders very soon.
Together with the release of the Locator-S1 we are also launching v2.1 of the Underwater GPS software package. Main changes are support for Locator-S1. If you are still on a v1.x software package, we strongly suggest you update to v2.1! It represents major improvements in all areas. The upgrade is easy and is found here:
Great jobs guys. We are waiting for underwater wlan. Remember that for a revolution we need products that are cheap, far away from oil industry or military one that are around 10k to enable communications between 2 points. Your solution currently is around 5k (for 2x master d1, 1x locator a1,1x receiver a1 ). For a wearable device or underwater iot we need a solution around 500€ for the beginning
Our Swedish friends at DeepVision have been successfully testing the Underwater GPS together with their side scan sonar.DeepVision ROV Side Scan with Water Linked Positioning System. We have now conducted a series of tests with the Water Linked underwater GPS. The system has given really good results in areas where positioning systems usually find it difficult to provide accurate positioning. Shallow water, dock's and harbours with boats and sharp walls are areas that usually cause problems. Here we have obtained very good data from Water Linked's system. We are now looking forward to their new wireless pinger! This will allow us to make a system together with our sonar and new software where you can create to own geo-referenced background to navigate your ROV within. ... See MoreSee Less
Check out this amazing ROV made by the Vortex NTNU group of students! The ROV is built to compete in the upcoming MATE ROV competition in Seattle, US. Water Linked is a proud sponsor of this team and provided them with a full Underwater GPS system. As you can see, they have nicely integrated the Locator device in the housing. We are lucky enough to already have 3 of these students working with us as summer internships and 1 doing his master thesis. Congratulations to all of you for a fantastic looking ROV! We look forward to seeing it in action and wish you the best in the competition! ... See MoreSee Less
