Our Story

AdBm Technologies is an Austin, TX based acoustical engineering company that specializes in developing high-performance, low-cost, and easy-to-deploy noise abatement technology for marine environments.  Our technology is based on research begun at The University of Texas at Austin’s Applied Research Laboratories, a leading acoustics research laboratory. Years of research and development, starting at the small laboratory scale, through large-scale systems tested at Lake Travis, and into full-sized demonstrations in the North Sea at the Norther Offshore Wind Farm have led to the current technology being offered today.

AdBm’s proprietary systems offer many distinct benefits, including:

  • Quick deployment
  • Passive system (no air supply required)
  • Proven attenuation up to 50 dB at target frequency
  • Customizable amount of attenuation and peak frequency of attenuation
  • Treats noise source or protects specific areas

Our Team

Our team is the backbone to AdBm’s success. Our expertise in underwater acoustics has made us leaders in underwater noise control, and our continued research efforts through leading laboratories keeps us at the forefront of the field. Our team includes experts in acoustics, business, and the regulatory world, giving us the tools necessary to stay ahead of the game and in a state of constant improvement.
