Simsonar develops products for underwater vision, automatic movement detection, automatic pattern recognitions, automatic measurement, and automatic reporting.
UVC

Simsonar UVC is based on ultrasound and is designed to monitor migratory fish when visibility is poor or the distance is long. UVC is based on ultrasound giving maximum distance of 70 meters (LR model).

FC
Simsonar FC is designed to detect fish in fishways and small brooks. FC is based on stereo optics enabling optical video and automatic measurements. Advanced pattern recognition makes fish detection and measurement more accurate and faster.
FC

Simsonar FC is delivered with Simsonar Video Tunnel. It optimizes the distance and lighting to achieve optimum conditions for creating real time video and measurement of fish.

Simsonar searches areas of disruptive innovation and utilizes the fast development of electronics. Results are technically high performance products with price advantage over competition. Intelligent use of open source environments and components make development faster without huge investments. Our customers see the benefits as lower cost and up-to-date features.

Strong utilization of modern communication systems enable effective remote monitoring and control of systems. Results of automatic measurements can be updated practically in realtime over the internet making research faster.

Cameras

Both UVC and FC systems contain three components: camera, power supply and PC.

Camera unit that are installed under the water. Image width of Simsonar Ultrasound Video Camera is from 28 to 44 degrees. The practical shooting distance is 50 meters (standard model) or 70 meters (Long Range model). Camera unit is connected to power supply unit (Land Level Unit, called LLU). The user interface runs on Windows 10 PC that is connected to LLU (and to camera) via ethernet.

Mechanics

Simsonar Underwater Video Camera (UVC) is based onthe low attenuation reflection system optimized for the wave nature of the sound.

The camera consists of three components: the actual sound transmitter and receiver including the reflectors, the underwater unit with the high capacity signal processing unit and the host processor installed in the underwater case, and the land level unit operated on land and connected to the underwater case with a CAT-5 cable.

The received echoes are processed and transferred from the underwater unit to the land level unit from where the signal is either transferred to the local PC or over the internet to the remote PC.

UVC display with measurements

Simsonar UVC Application is Windows application handling the video stream from Simsonar UVC camera. Stream is shown on PC display in real time. The moving objects are recognized and measured automatically.

Software generates reports and sends them by request to a server or to e-mail address. The video image is displayed on the PC screen and it can be recorded to the disk in real-time. The recorded stream can be viewed in any PC running the offline version software.
