Spotter Data Partitioning for "sea" and "swell"

Spotter can now partition data to provide better insight into the nature of the sea state.

Eco Wave Power Installs Spotter Buoy

Eco Wave Power has installed Spotter in order to conduct accurate measurements of wave height at their Gibraltar wave energy station.

Spotter Helps Costal Monitoring Network in New Caledonia

SPC has deployed a Spotter buoy off Nouméa's Southern coast, as part of the "Regional Coastal Warning Network.

The Science Behind Sofar Ocean Marine Weather Forecasts

We deployed an array of 200 weather sensors in the Pacific and assimilate the data in our global models. We have reduced forecast rms errors by over 20%, providing the highest fidelity wave forecasts in the world.

Strider captures underwater sound in Monterey Bay

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.

The Perfect Trident Field Kit

After searching through the records of our own trips we’ve come up with what we consider a good basic field kit for any Trident deployment.

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.

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.

Top Ten Shore Dive Locations in the U.S. for Underwater Drones

There’s a lot more to see close to shore than you think. The new class of remotely operated vehicles or underwater drones like Trident makes them far more accessible. Check out our list of favorites.

Minimizing the Risk of Invasive Species on ROVs

Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), like any machine or equipment used in marine or freshwater applications, present a potential risk for the transmission of invasive species. If not properly cleaned and treated, they may introduce novel species into new regions.

Spotter Measures Surface Winds

Wind blowing over the ocean drives the generation of short surface waves and whitecaps. From detailed measurement of the so-called equilibrium range in the wave spectrum, Spotter derives wind speed and direction
