Operating since 2009, eSonar is a commercial company with a mission to improve access to marine and subsea environmental data by applying advanced knowledge and translating that knowledge into actions that benefit mariners. Our products are used extensively by fisheries scientists and marine companies in the Canada, U.S.A. and internationally to provide advanced knowledge of vessel and deployed equipment operations.
Our staff of sonar engineers and signal processing experts are involved in continuous R&D to add new capabilities and improve our product capabilities. Key features of our designs include synthetic pressure housings that are RF transparent to facilitate parameter adjustment and data offload without requiring opening of the subsea enclosure and have been tested to 2000m submerged depth. We specialize in battery operated and power managed designs with long deployed lifetime and work closely with Memorial University to advance our technological solutions.
Our lighting division works with major international marine lighting companies to design the next level solutions in data-enabled LED marine lighting. Our lighting solutions turn your marine luminaires into data platforms that are connected and powered over Ethernet. Having your lighting system connected by Ethernet creates a distributed network on the vessel, allowing high-speed data access wherever there is lighting. Built-in sensors in the luminaire combine with the central Ethernet backbone to enhance command and control of your vessel.
We specialize in persistent, low-power, battery operated subsea equipment with a focus on underwater acoustic technology and we offer provide custom product development and software services to associated marine and subsea industries. In additional to design services, E-Sonar’s primary product lines comprise sonar and acoustic systems, data enabled marine LED lighting and integrated trawl management (net monitoring) systems that acoustically telemetry data back to the vessel from deployed equipment.
Our engineers use the latest in microprocessor technology to bring cutting-edge power management to subsea instruments and we make long-life, persistent solutions that can sense and telemeter custom data back to a nearby vessel or platform by reliable acoustic methods. Our rugged design methodologies and power management that can reduce power demand to micro-watts yielding outstanding deployed lifetimes. Our low-level software and firmware capabilities include programmable logic, network processors and we specialize in Arm processor types. Our high-level software capabilities include user interface, signal processing, instrument control, long term monitoring, data collection and storage, data display and bespoke visualization. We work with the fishing industry, shipboard marine industries, offshore oil and gas, aquaculture, and autonomous underwater vehicles. Our engineers, software specialists, technologists and technicians are eager to work with you to deliver your next commercial designs for subsea applications.
