A green laser water penetration system devised by Sylvania Electronic Systems in the late 1970's. Although advertised for fisheries use, this technology has evolved into LIDAR, a system for measuring shallow-water bathymetry and also for into a rapid terrain mapping technique. In: Farooq Hussain, 1970, "Living Underwater, " p. 87. Library Call Number GC65 H8 1970b.

Reginald Fessenden and his electric oscillator, the first acoustic device to receive echoes from the bottom as well as from an obstruction in the water. The oscillator was designed as an underwater signalling, communication, and obstruction avoidance device. In "Submarine Signaling," Scientific American Supplement, No. 2071, pp. 168-170, Sept. 11, 1915.
