FASTER echo repeater and sound source
The system consists of a marine unit with computer, batteries, GSM and transmitter and receiver units. Configuration, communication, control and data transfer takes place wirelessly from a land- or ship-based device via WLAN/WiFi.
A unique feature of FASTER is a very short delay between input and output signal, <2ms including real-time signal processing in MATLAB.
Other important technical data of note are 24-bit A/D, 192kHz sampling frequency, output power >400Wrms, 1-100kHz.
The FASTER system has been developed in collaboration with FOI - Swedish Defense Research Agency.
