A little-known tool has been making waves since it was introduced by a small company in Australia.
It can help you identify and track down lost radio transmitters on the surface of the ocean.
The Radiotrack antenna is designed to be attached to a boat’s mast, making it easier for authorities to locate and track radio equipment, and helps keep marine life safe.
It works by recording the sound of the waves coming in from a direction and then comparing it to the radar images recorded from a depth of 500 metres.
The data is then sent back to the boat’s owner via the radio, enabling the owner to check the status of their radio.
This is the first such antenna to be used in the UK.
The company has been selling the Radiotack for just under $10,000 (AUD$13,600).
The antenna is attached to the mast and the Radiothack is fitted on the bottom of the boat.
The two pieces are connected to a receiver, which is connected to the radio via a radio receiver jack.
The receiver can also be used as a receiver to track a boat using sonar or underwater cameras.
“It’s a pretty simple and cheap way to use the Radiatrack,” says Dr Peter Taylor, head of the Australian Institute of Marine Technology.
“They just need to put a bit of wire up there, attach the Radialitrack to the top of the mast, and the whole thing is very simple to use.”
Radio receivers are typically sold for about $1,000 and are relatively expensive, but the Radiodack has a price tag of just $10.
Dr Taylor says the Radiacrack antenna was designed to work with a variety of devices.
It is not yet possible to track the Radiolab, a small underwater camera.
But with the Radioprack antenna it is possible to trace a boat with a high degree of certainty.
Dr Peter Turner, the lead designer of the RadioTrack, says it was originally designed to detect submerged objects.
“We have tried to make the Radiomack a bit like the Sonar track, so that you can see the movement of objects, but in the same way,” he said.
“In the end, the Sonarcrack is the way to go.”
He says the technology has already been tested by a number of companies, including the Royal Australian Navy, and has a “very strong community” of people using it.
“The technology is still very early in its development, but it’s looking pretty good.”
The Radiolabs are also currently being used to track whales in the Great Barrier Reef, and have been deployed on a small number of boats.
The technology is being developed at a UK company called Radioback, and it has been tested in Australia by a company called The Radioteach.
“Our system has been successfully deployed in several tests, including an emergency call to a marine rescue team, where the Radios were able to detect and track a large whale,” The Radioach says.
“This is an extremely exciting milestone for the Radiology industry and a huge step forward for the technology.”
Dr Turner says the first use of the technology was in the Gulf of Mexico, where it was used to locate a sunken submarine, and also on the west coast of South America, where a boat was towed down a stream in search of lost submarines.
“There’s no doubt the Radiantrack has the potential to help in the search for lost and stranded vessels,” he says.
