Daniamant EchoPilot 3D Sonar and ODEO Flares

Torches and Strobes Depth Sounders Fish Finders

Odeo stands for Omni Directional Electrical Optical signal and is an innovative replacement and enhancement to traditional hand flares.

Traditional flares will illuminate for around 30 seconds before extinguishing: the Odeo Flare™ illuminates for around 6 hours at full illumination. Because no pyrotechnics are used, the Odeo Flare™ is totally safe when switched off, and because it uses battery power (high power Lithium or Alkaline cells), it can even be safely posted or carried in baggage on flights.


The Odeo Flare™ is designed with consideration to SOLAS requirements, making it a genuine alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand held flare. The US Coast Guard is now leading the world in developing standards for electronic Visual Distress Signals (eVDS) as a replacement for the hand held pyrotechnic flare. The Odeo Flare™ also outputs an SOS signal during its flash pattern as described in Annex 4 to COLREGS, and is thus an internationally recognised distress signal.

This latest development of the well proven patented Echopilot Forward Looking Sonar, displays a 3 dimensional representation of the underwater scene ahead of the boat. The seabed terrain and potential hazards are shown, for the first time, with unparalleled realism. This is a real time sonar image of what is actually ahead of the boat, not a chart rendered into 3D.

Twin retractable transducers ensure complete forward coverage whatever the hull form. The view ahead is 60 degrees in the horizontal plane, over 90 degrees in the vertical plane and the forward range is up to 200 m. The screen updates every 1  second depending on the range setting. The black-box FLS-3D outputs HDMI and VGA for a full color picture on a wide range of compatible displays.

A basic EchoPilot 3D is supplied with two 5” transducers with bronze housings. Optional housing lengths and materials available for metal or very thick hulls.

2-meter transducer cable, 10 meter extension cable and 10 meter data cable (from Transducer Interface box to Visual Processor).
