The Smart Modem Acoustic Release Technology (SMART) Release is a unique concept from Teledyne Benthos, that combines the proven technology of an underwater acoustic release with the reliable undersea communications functionality of an acoustic modem.
When deployed, the unit can be connected to an underwater sensor, such as CTD, ADCP or similar sensor. The SMART release unit can then acoustically transfer data from the connected sensor to the surface or to another subsea modem for retrieval at a later time.
The SMART release allows oceanographic, military, and other users, the ability to monitor and retrieve data from their subsea instruments, and then release the entire package of instruments successfully to the ocean surface when needed.
