Dive into possibilities: The new SM3 aquatic models

The SM3 aquatic is a device that's tougher than any we’ve ever made. The all new Song Meter features a rugged, die-cast aluminum body and an unprecedented 3 year warrantee. It’s a machine you can count on in the most extreme of environments.

But no two customers have the same demands out in the field, and that’s why it’s also our most flexible product line. Just about any feature can be tailored to fit your needs.

  • There's an ultrasonic and acoustic model
  • They're the only recorders of their kind to simultaneously monitor above and below the water line
  • Record any combination of marine, terrestrial, and avian life
  • Monitor all kinds of aquatic life, from 20Hz to 48kHz
  • Perform acoustic recording and noise logging simultaneously
  • Use out of the box recording programs, or customize your own.
  • Save time by choosing from a menu of standard options, such as daytime, nighttime, or continuous.
  • Or, create your own custom schedule with our easy-to-use configurator software.

Multiple Hardware Options

Outfit the SM3 to your needs. You can choose to record with the standard acoustic hydrophone, or you can opt to upgrade to an ultrasonic hydrophone. See our accessories page for more details.

How to get an iPad and Echo Meter Touch for your Classroom

How to get an iPad and Echo Meter Touch for your Classroom

The Echo Meter Touch is our unprecedented, easy to use device which turns your iPhone (5s, 5c and 5) or iPad (Air, mini with Retina display and iPad, 4th generation) into a bat detector/recorder/analyzer. And with the growing trend of iPads and even iPhones being used as educational tools, it’s a natural fit for the classroom. After all, it allows kids to interact directly with nature and brings normally unseen and unheard of creatures to light: Kids can see the spectrogram (graph) of bats sounds and hear them through our patented Real Time Expansion technology. We are even developing a detailed curriculum to make teaching with the Echo Meter Touch even more seamless and engaging!

What if your class or school doesn’t have a budget for the iPad/Echo Meter Touch?

That’s where DonorsChoose.org comes in.

Wildlife Acoustics in the classroom: More on the MARA project

Wildlife Acoustics in the classroom: More on the MARA project

“It’s quite difficult to protect a species if you are unaware of where it is located!” That’s the simplest explanation that Dr. Heather Cunningham, state coordinator of The Maryland Amphibian and Reptile Atlas (MARA), can give as to why her massive citizen science project is so important.

The MARA project aims to document the current distribution of all amphibian and reptile species in Maryland, and in Calvert County alone, they’ve enlisted 1300 seventh graders to help out!

Not only does this help the state get a better picture of their population density, but it also educates students on the importance of these creatures.
