Spotter has accumulated over a million hours of open ocean exposure. We have taken everything we have learned and put it into the design of Spotter V2 to improve reliability and ruggedness.
Spotter V2 also includes an optional Sea Surface Temperature Sensor.
Deploy it once and control it remotely. Spotter is a complete end-to-end system. You turn it on, deploy it, and data appears in your dashboard. It’s that simple.
With 24/7 satellite connectivity, real-time weather data and system updates are always available. You can share the data through the included mobile App or use the Spotter API to forward real-time and historical data to wherever you want.
You can set your personalized weather conditions to receive an alert. That way you never miss a weather window. Our integrated geofencing feature alerts you if your Spotter isn’t exactly where you want it.
The combination of solar panels and rechargeable battery means that you never have to worry about running out of power. Spotter is always ready to go.
The ocean is a rough place. Every part of Spotter is built to withstand the harshest ocean elements in any water condition, anywhere on our planet.
Compact and Portable
Compact and Portable. Roughly the size of a basketball, Spotter can be shipped anywhere around the world, carried by hand, and deployed without any special equipment.

The Spotter dashboard provides access to real-time and historical data and enables you to change your Spotters’ settings from anywhere in the world. You can set up alerts for weather conditions or get notified if your Spotter is outside of its geofence. You can also access data using the API or share your data with the Spotter mobile App.See the dashboard view
You can do both. Spotter can be moored in place for wave measurements, or be used as a wave-enabled Lagrangian drifter to measure both waves and track surface currents. The Spotter on-board analysis is designed with free drifting in mind, and will continue to measure waves accurately even in fast flowing currents.
Spotter comes with a free, one-year global data package. This free data period starts when you turn on your Spotter for the first time after registration, or within 3 months after registration, whichever comes first. The period of use is based on the standard transmission rate in Waves mode, but you will have full access to two-way communication and Track mode, and any new features we would make available during the period your real-time subscription is active.
