The University of Tokyo chose Sofar Spotters to conduct studies at high latitudes to better understand the nature of sea-ice interaction. The Spotter buoys were both resilient and able to provide meaningful data to the team even after spending the winter in the harsh Arctic Ocean.
The Brazilian Navy chose Sofar Spotters to support their weather research and monitoring mission in the Southern Ocean.
Swimsol is an Austrian-Maldivian company that is specialized in developing floating solar systems for marine environments.
Eco Wave Power has installed Spotter in order to conduct accurate measurements of wave height at their Gibraltar wave energy station.
SPC has deployed a Spotter buoy off Nouméa's Southern coast, as part of the "Regional Coastal Warning Network.
Hydro-acoustic data is being collected regularly these days. Most of the collection is being conducted free-floating hydrophones some stationary devices on the seafloor. These make up arrays that can give scientists insight into a lot of seismic, human-made, and biological noises.
Historical and real-time access to marine data is paramount to the success of marine operations. Marine renewable energy programs require accurate environmental conditions at all stages: site characterisation and energy potential assessment, design criteria, construction, performance and fatigue analysis.
In the world of aquaculture it is important to get the full-picture of what is going on the surface and underwater at your facility. Whether inspecting cages and pens, getting live video during feedings or monitoring for invasive species, or monitoring live ocean weather at your site, knowledge is a valuable tool for aquaculture farms.
