Our products were designed to be more than just tools —they're platforms. We want to hear about your ocean data needs and look forward to designing and building integrated data solutions together.
Spotter can be extended to integrate with other sensors that can then utilize its power and communication systems to relay information in real-time.
Trident is open-source and has mechanical attachment points for easy integration with other devices – everything you need to customize Trident to the specific task you need performed.
Strider allows for custom sensor integration and built-out mission-specific protocols and actions
Sofar Weather API enables you to take the data from our ocean grid and apply it to your models.
Our platforms have already been deployed all around our planet, from the Southern Ocean to the tropics. Through reliable satellite connectivity, we provide truly global coverage and unlimited 24/7 access to your data, no matter where you are.
If you have an ocean mission that requires custom data collection let us know. We have custom development services for customers interested in large scale global deployments.
Spotter lets you collect ocean data where you need it and access real-time updates on the go.
Deploy With Ease
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.
An End-to-end Ocean Data System
Spotter combines the hardware, software, and mobile access to give you everything you need to start collecting, viewing, and sharing real-time ocean weather data.
Smart use of mobile sensor technology, combined with science-based analysis methods, provides exceptional data quality.
Trident enables exploring the underwater world, surveying underwater bathymetry and reefs, or inspecting equipment and installations, without the cost, complexity and risk of diving.
Capture Captivating Video
Trident's advanced color correction algorithms allow you to see underwater in all its colors. Stream live with low-latency and record in full HD simultaneously.
Easy To Pilot
Live video is streamed back to the surface over an ultra-thin kevlar-reinforced tether, then directly to your easy-to-use Trident Controller over WiFi.
Portable & Easy-to-Use
Strider can be checked into commercial airlines and deployed by a single person. This reduces personnel costs, shipping costs, and enables a wide range of deployments and missions.
Real-time Control & Waypoint Setting
Control Strider remotely or simply click a point on a map to autonomously route the ASV to that location..
Access Data Through a Robust API
All of our real-time sensor and model forecast data is available through our API.
Historical Data and Climatologies
Sofar’s cloud-based data infrastructure ingests and stores more than 30 years of historical surface wind, surface wave and ocean circulation data for our entire planet. And we provide on-demand climatologies anywhere
