Title of the Innovation: Met Ocean Buoy System-II
Brief About Innovation
Data Buoys are moored offshore platforms, fitted with meteorological and oceanographic sensors, deployed at specific locations to observe in-situ Met-Ocean data and subsea parameters at regular intervals. Natural disasters such as storms, cyclones and hurricanes necessitated the scientific community, weather forecasting organizations, disaster warning agencies, and governments to work towards real time availability of critical marine data. Real-time data from these platforms are used for scientific research, as well as in support of weather and marine forecasts and as an aid to climate modelling and prediction. The technology provides a indigenously developed a low power, moored, data buoy system. This Buoy consists of Central Processing Unit, which is a micro controller based Embedded Unit. Met Ocean Buoy System Type – 2 is floating platform with two different shape of the hulls.
