Throw the Spotter buoy overboard, anywhere, for immediate ocean insights
Don’t worry about harsh conditions — Spotter is solar powered and sustainably designed to withstand harsh conditions with minimal biofouling
Scale distributed sensor networks with dense data ingestion
Spotter is a turnkey open-ocean buoy that gives you access to real-time ocean data at your fingertips: wind, waves, sea surface temperatures, and more. Get access to the device, data dashboard, and the API, all in one package.
It all comes in a small, easy-to-deploy package. Spotters are cost-effective, sustainably-powered, and designed to provide the flexibility you need for your projects.
Easily integrate a Temperature and/or a Pressure sensor with Spotter as a hub for power and connectivity. No configurations needed: just connect and access your Smart Mooring data right away from our API and dashboard.
With Smart Mooring, anyone from a citizen scientist to a natural resource manager can equip Spotter with any combination of sensors in the water column for immediate access to that data.
USGS is deploying Smart Moorings to collect real-time water level data. This information will be used to assess the skill of the USGS/NOAA Total Water Level and Coastal Change Forecast, which provides real-time forecasts of water levels and coastal change along nearly 3,000 miles of the U.S. Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
The Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) is an IMO regulation aimed at helping the shipping industry decarbonize. In this piece, we detail its key components.
