Product Name:AWAC
Description:The AWAC is a current profiler and a wave directional system in one unit. It is small, rugged, and suitable for multi-year operation in tough environments. You can measure the current speed and direction in 1-meter thick layers from the bottom to the surface. Waves of all varieties are measureable.
