Between 2007 and the end of 2019 alone, Novega equipped more than 50,000 large ships with underwater locating devices, making it the world‘s undisputed market and technological leader for Underwater Locator Beacons (ULBs), also called Underwater Locating Devices (ULDs), in the maritime sector. Since 2017, we exclusively deliver our low frequency ULB to the worldwide two biggest aircraft manufactures. This success confirms our innovation, the expertise in developing and constructing acoustic beacons for underwater location operations. But most of all, it shows that Novega‘s locating devices stand for precision and reliability – even when exposed to extreme weather conditions at sea.
