Over the past 35 years, employees of SDB MRAT FEB RAS have performed a large amount of research and development work on the creation of new equipment that meets the increased requirements for reliability of operation in harsh marine experimental work. The main areas of development of SDB MRAT FEB RAS at the present time:
- Deep-sea automatic stations for acoustic and hydrophysical studies in the ocean.
- Cable multi-parameter stations for conducting year-round seismoacoustic studies in the ultra-low frequency range with simultaneous measurement of hydrophysical parameters of the medium (sound velocity, temperature, pressure, flow velocity).
- A radio telemetry system consisting of a set of beacons and ship equipment designed to study the geological structure of the sea and ocean floor using the correlated method of refracted waves.
- A hydroacoustic system consisting of a group of spatially separated synchronous autonomous deepwater stations designed for experimental studies using acoustic interferometry to solve problems of diagnosing the ocean, its bottom and the dynamics of the water column.
- Sounding complex designed to measure the speed of sound in seawater and pressure with processing and display of information in real time.
- The Autonomous Deepwater Complex is a carrier of oceanographic research equipment designed to equip it with multi-functional measurement modules for various purposes.
- Automated tsunami detection system based on hydrophysical precursors. Designed for advance warning of residents of coastal settlements, to avoid damage to port facilities and ships.
