The Apollo is an independently powered, self-contained mooring beacon with the power of an ultra-bright LED flasher combined with satellite communications.
Get notification of the Apollo's arrival at the surface from anywhere on earth via the Iridium Low Earth Orbit satellite communication system. Once you arrive on site, you will get unparalleled visibility even in the worst conditions.
Apollo is fully submersible and has been rated to 11,000m (36,089 ft) below sea level. That includes Challenger deep. A solid-state sensor detects when the beacon breaks the surface of the water and provides a measure of reliability unavailable in mechanical methods. The Apollo provides superior functionality and flexibility in a miniaturized package.
The Apollo is designed to meet and exceed your operational requirements for an ultra deep water submersible beacon. The LED flasher and Iridium communication provides the best in global and local retrieval options.
