hydrophone muphydro

MupHydro is a smart programmable digital hydrophone.

Conceived for long term deployments, each unit can be connected with up to 4 hydrophones and ambient sensors. This smart hydrophone can be used for underwater acoustic event detection and subsea noise measurements. It can be also used for permanent underwater monitoring, such as in case of oil and gas, underwater security and biological monitoring.


• Designed to stay underwater > 25 years @ 3000m depth with no exposed metal part
• Top performance in terms of signal processing capability and multi-interface
• It can be programmed for a wide range of applications
