Hand Held Metal Detectors
Metal Detector vs. Magnetometer
If you are searching primarily for nonferrous metal (gold, silver, lead, brass, bronze, aluminum, etc.), the best piece of equipment is a metal detector (Pulse 6X, Pulse 8X or SAR-1).
If you are searching primarily for ferrous metal objects (iron and steel), the best piece of equipment is a magnetometer (DiverMag-1 or PT-1). The advantage of using a magnetometer is that it has a much greater detection area than a metal detector.
The highest performance diver-held ferrous metal detector on the market today.
The Diver Mag 1 is a top performing microprocessor driven marine magnetometer detection system with a one gamma sensitivity. This hand-held mag is a super sensitive detector of ferrous metal (iron/steel) that works equally well on land and underwater. The mag will locate pipe lines, cables, cannons, dredge parts, and just about any ferrous metal object of any size. Ruggedly constructed for commercial operations, the Diver Mag 1 was designed with user friendly controls for ease of operation. Out of the water, the handle grip makes the mag easy to carry.

PT-1 Pipe Tracker
The sensitive, pinpointing magnetometer.
The PT-1 is a sensitive, pinpointing magnetometer. It works equally well on land, and in fresh or salt water. The PT-1 was specifically designed to locate and track iron and steel pipelines and armored cables, but it will also detect all ferrous (iron/steel) targets buried under any kind of material, including concrete, with no loss in detection range.

Fishers' top of the line detector.
With a 200 foot depth rated housing and a 6 foot maximum detection range, the Pulse 8X is Fishers top of the line detector. It's heavy duty construction and high sensitivity make the Pulse 8X the choice of professionals everywhere. This commercial-grade metal detector is used by treasure hunters, commercial diving companies, law enforcement agencies, and military units worldwide.

Pulse induction metal detector.
The Pulse 6X has the same top quality construction and 200 foot depth rating as the top-performing Pulse 8X, but with less detection range. The Pulse 6X not only shares many of the same features, but it can be upgraded to the Pulse 8X at any time. No other detector is available with this type of upgrade feature. The Pulse 6X is in use by military, law enforcement, commercial, and salvage divers worldwide.

One of the most effective tools for underwater exploration
Side scan sonar is one of the most effective tools for underwater exploration because it can search a large area quickly and produce a detailed picture of anything on the bottom, regardless of water clarity. When looking at a side scan image it appears as if the water has been removed and the operator is getting an unobstructed view of the ocean floor, lake bottom, or river bed. High resolution images are sent from the towfish to a topside computer (included with the system) for display and storage. An optional Splash-proof computer is available for small, open boat operations. Fishers SONAR VIEW software gives the operator complete control over the systems operating parameters. Choose between 10 different scan ranges and 8 color schemes to display images. Connect a GPS and position coordinates are automatically captured with the side scan data. Point the mouse on a target and the GPS position coordinates for the target are displayed on the screen.
