The UDU is designed to provide high definition sonar imagery in a rapidly deployable fully integrated package. With a range of 450 ft., the UDU provides sonar imagery similar to that of medwww.seadiscovery.com ical ultrasound equipment. An optional underwater hailing system is also available that allows for one-way communication with a diver or underwater threat. With a price tag of less than $70,000, the UDU is a fully integrated, turnkey sonar designed for use in underwater security operations, dive monitoring, search & recovery, inspection and subsurface biological research. Included are all the necessary components for mounting the sonar head, cabling, interface connections, and tablet PC to view and process the sonar data. Available in two configurations, the UDU can be permanently mounted to a surface vessel or packaged in a portable hard case so it can be easily transported by a single person.
