A growing demand for subsea data
Environmental observing and monitoring applications involve large numbers of networked devices placed in coastal regions, deep ocean and remote areas of the world. Governments and NGOs coordinate observations to track climate change, provide early warning of weather events and water management issues, and conserve the biodiversity and sustainable health of marine ecosystems.
NOAA’s National Data Buoy Center has deployed over 1,400 buoys using acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCPs) in oceans around the world. UNESCO’s Global Ocean Observing System has deployed and manages a network of over 8,000 buoys and platforms. Tracking harmful algae blooms, climate change, sea levels and pollution requires monitoring, capturing, modeling and analyzing large quantities of data from challenging environments.
Insight, security and more…
Digitizing ocean data gathering to update infrastructures, optimize performance, automate collection, reduce cost and risk, and add flexibility and agility in the deployment and management of ocean observing.
Developing new applications to monitor water quality as climate change leads to ocean warming and harmful algae blooms threaten sea life and the food chain.
Securing data more frequently to move beyond one-size-fits all models for threat analysis and planning.
