Taber Industries has enjoyed a long and successful heritage with the Navy and other defense programs, as well as numerous commercial applications — above and below the sea.
Submersibles • Subsea • Surface Vessels, Mine Sweeping & Propulsion
Military and research applications for Taber’s oceanographic transducers include underwater submersibles as well as various types of equipment for the US Navy’s mine countermeasure operations. Taber transducers meet NAVSEA, RV-S, and DSRV specifications for several major manufacturers of maritime equipment. Taber can also specify transducers for commercial oceanographic applications such as offshore oil wells and rigs. There are many additional oceanographic applications that have utilized Taber transducers where water submersion is not a requirement. Applications may be inside submarines and other submersibles (e.g. bathyscaphe-type vehicles) where the pressure transducers are protected from actual submersion in seawater. Taber transducers have also been used aboard surface vessels where they are subjected to the corrosive environment of seawater.
