Modular Data Buoy Platform

Planet Ocean

Cost: Contact Manufacturer

The system is modular and can be supplied with integrated solar power supply comprising up to 4 x 20W solar panels, regulator and batteries, self contained solar powered navigation light, St Andrews cross top mark, choice of telemetry system, message stenciling. Data buoys can also be supplied in standard lateral or cardinal configurations if required. The buoys are fitted with a through hull fairlead tube (moon pool) so that instruments can be deployed without cables being exposed over the hull and without recovering the buoy. Instruments are stored within the tube until the buoy is deployed, providing important protection during movement. Instrument packages may also be deployed through the center of the hull and ballast skirt. The DB range is fitted with a hollow, removable upper tower section that houses the radar reflector and sensitive electronics modules within its own protected compartment. The upper tower section has a tapered lower portion that fits into a similarly tapered receptor in the middle tower section that makes alignment at sea extremely simple. The buoys have flat bottoms and are free standing.
