Over the past 35 years, SRBA MR FEB RAS employees have carried out a large amount of research and development work on the creation of new equipment that meets the increased requirements for reliable operation in harsh marine experimental conditions. The main directions of development of the SRBA MR FEB RAS are currently:
- Deep-water automatic stations intended for acoustic and hydrophysical studies in the ocean.
- Cable multiparameter stations for carrying out year-round seismoacoustic studies in the ultralow-frequency range with simultaneous measurement of hydrophysical parameters of the medium (sound velocity, temperature, pressure, flow velocity).
- A radiotelemetric system consisting of a set of radio beacons and shipboard equipment designed to study the geological structure of the sea and ocean floor by the correlation method of refracted waves.
- A hydroacoustic system consisting of a group of spatially separated synchronous autonomous deepwater stations intended for experimental studies using acoustic interferometry methods for solving problems of ocean diagnostics, its bottom, and water column dynamics.
- Sounding complex designed to measure the speed of sound in seawater and pressure with processing and display of information in real time.
- A deep-sea autonomous complex is a carrier of oceanographic research equipment, intended for equipping it with multifunction measuring modules for various purposes.
- Automated tsunami detection system for hydrophysical precursors. It is intended for early warning of residents of coastal settlements, excluding damage to port facilities and vessels.
