How the University of Tokyo Measures Arctic Sea-Ice Interactions with Spotters

The University of Tokyo chose Sofar Spotters to conduct studies at high latitudes to better understand the nature of sea-ice interaction. The Spotter buoys were both resilient and able to provide meaningful data to the team even after spending the winter in the harsh Arctic Ocean.

How Spotter Buoys Support the Brazilian Navy's Antarctic Weather Mission

The Brazilian Navy chose Sofar Spotters to support their weather research and monitoring mission in the Southern Ocean.

What is Biofouling and How Can We Stop It?

Biofouling impacts everything from ocean buoys to massive cargo ships; here’s what marine biofouling is and how we can prevent it.

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.

Wave Swell Energy Deploys a Spotter wave buoy to support their King Island marine energy project.

Historical and real-time access to marine data is paramount to the success of marine operations. Marine renewable energy programs require accurate environmental conditions at all stages: site characterisation and energy potential assessment, design criteria, construction, performance and fatigue analysis.

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.
