The Nortek Acoustic Waves and Currents (AWAC) sensor is a current profiler and directional wave  system in one unit.  The AWAC is well suited for both autonomous data collection and as part of a real-time data telemetry
system. Subsurface deployment means the instrument is always protected from harsh weather,  vandalism, and ship traffic. The small, yet rugged instrument is suitable for multi-year operation in  tough environments. Plastic and titanium parts avoid corrosion. The AWAC is available in three transmit  frequencies for operational ranges spanning 2m to 100m.
