Know conditions before you go, and get real-time data from locations around the world.
Deploy Spotter or access the Sofar Weather API to get real-time swell data and apply that to models.
Deploy Strider and Trident to capture important data intel on benthic environments. Add payloads and sensors for additional data points.
Sofar Weather API and Spotter can provide detailed data on severe weather events. Spotter can be easily deployed ahead of severe weather events to get real-time event data.
Improve models and understanding of specific areas by deploying Trident and Strider to capture important geo-spatial data with high-quality video of side-scan sonar.
Deploy Trident to run-fish count transects easily. Or deploy Strider to them over an extended area for an extended period of time.
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
