Fountains and aeration equipment
AquaMaster fountains, aeration equipment and natural microbial products are designed for any aquatic environment. Products are available in 60 and 50 hertz, and range from 1/3 to 25 horsepower. Floating fountain aerators are designed to absorb oxygen above the water’s surface through an electric-motor-driven, chemical-free process. The oxygen-enriched droplets strike the surface of water, creating a wave action and transferring over 2 pounds of oxygen per horsepower per hour while creating stunning surface displays. Smaller environments can benefit from the Fixed Fountain Series; the fixed-based fountain units are custom-built and fitted with a variety of nozzles to meet the demands of any landscape.

The Recon Scout IR reconnaissance robot is the world’s first throwable, mobile robot with the capability of seeing in complete darkness, according to the manufacturer. The miniature robot is designed to save lives by allowing the police and military to assess hostile environments before sending in their personnel. Users simply throw the robot through a window or doorway or over a wall, and then use the handheld operator control unit to move the robot through the dark environment. The infrared optical systems on the robot automatically turn on when the ambient light is low and immediately begin transmitting clear real-time video to the operator control unit video screen or a nearby command post.
