In the 21st century, progress and innovations have become an everyday matter. Yet most divers still communicate with hand signals or noisemakers, and have no way to contact the surface. A solution is long overdue.
The UDI™ is an innovation that permits the diver to navigate and send messages, while serving as a diving computer – all in one single device that increases safety and decreases response time for addressing undersea emergencies.
The system is comprised of a UDI™ boat unit and one or more UDI™ wrist-mounted diver units. The device can be configured to allow up to 14 different divers on 4 different networks to communicate with the surface or with each other;
Navigation: Professional and recreational divers alike can now navigate underwater to their buddy diver when receiving an SOS signal from him. The navigation feature has a range of up to 1,000 meters, with a depth of 70 meters. The system features both a diver SOS and a boat SOS.
Messaging: The UDI™ allows two way underwater wireless communications via pre-configured text messaging (underwater SMS), with up to 14 preset messages.
The message transmission range is identical to the navigation range.
UDI™ messaging is superior to wireless voice communication, which requires full face masks which increase air consumption, not to mention the advantage of UDI™'s user-friendly HMI (Human Machine Interface).
Diving computer: The UDI™ includes a fully functional RGBM NITROX diving computer, allowing any EAN mixture, altitude correction, and multiple dives (without requiring a 24-hour reset for new divers), deep stops option and a log book.
3D compass: The UDI™ features a 3D compass corrected to elevation of up to ±60 with either graphic or digital digit display.
PC interface: All applications are software-based with full PC communication capability.
UTC UDI™ device is a robust, proven and patented technology that is leading the field of underwater communications.
