Contract to develop an Acoustic Detection System – for Marine Mammals


Neptune has been awarded a contract to develop an Acoustic Detection System for the Scottish fish farm market by Ace Aquatec. The solution proposed is an active sonar, with the ability to detect the movement of a target from its reflection of an acoustic signal. Neptune currently supply a number of acoustic products to Ace Aquatec for deterring problem Seals for fish farms.

Neptune’s ‘New’ Engineering Design Office

ONew Lab 001 - Copyur new design office is now built and operational. Our Technical Director, Mechanical Engineer, Electronics Engineer, Software Engineer and Production Planner have moved into this open-plan space where projects are to be developed with greater efficiency and communication. This is the first completed department of the new laboratory building, and we plan to have the remaining areas up and running step-by step in order to support our continuous growth. Having recently expanded to include electronics and software engineers, we are now in a position to offer bespoke electronics and software design to complement our existing transducer designs. This has the potential to greatly simplify the electronic interface to our transducers and provide the best possible solutions for our customers.
