Teledyne Odom are leaders in the design and manufacture of hydrographic sounding systems that are in wide use by survey companies, navy’s and government charting agencies around the world. The product range comprises of sound velocity profilers, sub bottom profilers, transducers, single beam and multibeam echosounders.

The company was incorporated in 1985 to manufacture and sell hydrographic survey equipment. During the first seven years, Odom Hydrographic Systems, Inc. provided over 300 MKI EchoTrac echo sounders to organisations such as the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and the Panama Canal Commission. Additionally, EchoTrac echo sounders are supplied to numerous navies, port authorities, and research firms world-wide. The company became part of the Teledyne Marine Group in 2010.

Digibar Pro

Single point sound velocity measurement system with real time readout

The Digibar Pro is the most cost-effective means of obtaining accurate water column sound velocities. Used primarily to calibrate acoustic systems, the Digibar Pro offers a fast and safe method for sound velocity calibration as compared to the traditional "bar-check" Regardless of sea state or current, the probe is simply lowered into the water to log sound velocity / depth samples (by time or depth interval) as the probe descends. The "sing-around" principle of velocity measurement automatically compensates for all influences including pressure, water salinity and temperature.

Digibar S

Self-recording profiling sound velocity instrument

The rugged all stainless steel Digibar S was designed for un-tethered sound velocity casting. This configuration frees the probe from its electrical cable making deeper sound speed profiling a much easier and more reliable task. With a 500 m maximum depth capability and storage for multiple casts, the "S's" flexible design still maintains some of the best features of the popular Digibar Pro.

Immediately before the unit is deployed, a simple system of flashing LEDs serves to confirm battery status, pressure sensor status, and overall probe operation. The confirming indicators drastically reduce the possibility of retrieving a deployment only to find that there is no data to show for the effort. Logging parameters are setup via a simple Windows interface communicating through your PC's USB port. That same port is used to download the results of the cast and to charge the probe's internal batteries. Cast data (sound velocity, temperature, pressure, and time) are stored internal to the probe in EEPROM. This means that critical measurements are maintained independently from the batteries that power the unit's time of flight velocity determining circuitry, thereby providing an extra layer of security for the all-important cast results.
