Weather impacts every aspect of operations on offshore platforms, ships, and in ports. Rapid changes in weather and sea conditions make monitoring of both meteorological and oceanographic parameters a critically important part of ensuring safety, but also maintaining operational efficiency.
Reliable monitoring systems like buoys, USVs enable operational decision-making based on real-time, site specific data rather than regional forecast and/or intuition. The highly changeable conditions at sea make offshore operations particularly challenging.
Airmar provides an IPX7 version of the Model 200WX designed specifically for buoy, USV and other offshore platforms; well suited for portable battery and solar powered applications and the IPX7 configuration is designed for this harsh and demanding environment.
You’ll find AIRMAR’s WeatherStation® on many advanced USVs, buoys deployed in the oceans as well as on recreational yachts and commercial fishing vessels. Find the sensor that’s right for you below.
Our WeatherStation products have millions of hours in the oceans toughest conditions and our partners continue to count on AIRMAR for the weather data expertise that enables them to explore the world’s oceans. See what our partners have to say about working with the team at AIRMAR.
