Our Oceanographic Buoys Information Management System is a complete solution that gravitates around one buoy or a network of oceanographic buoys. They are equipped with a multitude of instruments and sensors enabling scientists, oceanographers, meteorologists, and other researchers to conduct various tasks and researches.
The buoys are equipped with a fully configurable specialised control unit allowing, inter alia, scheduling the sampling time, the transmission time as well as areal-time check mode, of each instruments. The recovered data from the buoys are stored in an internal memory and then transferred to a land base. In doing so, two communication modes are privileged. The satellite technology allows the buoy to send the data to the land base, even when they are found off the coasts. The transmission occurs with the use of a satellite modem and an antenna of the same type. When the buoy is closer to the coasts, the UHF transmission is most suitable, because it is faster and less energy-consuming.
The reception and data processing of the earth program allow the most recent information that was transmitted by the oceanographic buoys to be viewed. The design tools combine conviviality and security by saving all the precise information in a database. Thereafter, the Web diffusion program shares in graphs and tables on the Intranet or Internet the information collected from each the scientific sensors.
