The three-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between NOAA's NDBC and Sofar Ocean is a collaborative effort that will lead to advances in marine observations and environmental monitoring.
An in-depth look at how marine professionals use rapidly deployable and cost-effective sensing systems to make direct, real-time observations at scale, and power commercial ocean industries and climate research.
The Autoridad Nacional de Asuntos Maritimos, NOAA Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, and the University of North Carolina Wilmington will detail how they built their regional monitoring networks to collect data at scale.
The 10 Spotters airdropped in the path of Hurricane Idalia made real-time observations of the extreme conditions near the storm's eye wall. This ground truth data will help improve hurricane understanding, prediction, and coastal resilience.
Meet Sofar at Booth 504 during OCEANS 2023 Gulf Coast. Sofar's CTO, Evan Shapiro will also be presenting "Bristlemouth: A Performant and Capable Open Full-Stack Connectivity Standard" on September 27th at 2:30 pm CT.
Luode deploys fleets of Spotter systems at offshore wind sites throughout the Baltic Sea to collect wave data at scale. This real-time data supports technical site assessment and design, and ensures that maintenance is conducted safely and efficiently.
Sofar Ocean & Naval Oceanography's five-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement focuses on expanding the U.S. Navy’s ocean weather forecasting and data collection capabilities.
Antti Lindfors of Luode joined Sofar Ocean's Commercial Account Executive Jasmine Eggleton to discuss how Luode deploys fleets of Spotter buoy systems to collect critical ocean data at offshore wind sites.
Understand the outsized impact of weather for voyage optimization to maximize savings opportunities for fuel, time, and emissions.
Michael Cuttler and Jeff Hansen of the University of Western Australia's Oceans Institute join Sofar's Duncan Mactavish to discuss how they use the Spotter buoy platform to monitor wave, ocean temperature, and coastal dynamics.
