Deploying Spotter From An Airplane

To provide precise information of ocean weather where we need it, the ability to deploy ocean sensor systems from the air is critical.

Data Validation: Spotter Takes a Stand

To provide a direct validation of the Spotter motion sensing capabilities, we purpose-built a motion-controlled teststand that enables detailed simulation of realistic ocean surface motions.

Data Validation: Statistics at Mavericks

To compare the Spotter data with traditional scientific instrumentation, we deploy a Spotter alongside a Datawell Waverider near Mavericks, the California big-wave surf spot. Detailed comparison of spectra and directional moments confirms outstanding Spotter data quality.

Announcing Spotter v2 with SST

Spotters have racked up over a million ocean hours in climates ranging from the tropics, subtropics and arctic. We've taken what we have learned and built it into Spotter v2.

Introducing Strider: The Affordable, Modular ASV

The Sofar Strider is a coastal, near-shore and inland water monitoring platform capable of extended range and multiple sensor configurations.
