Ocean Fisheries Surveys
Ocean Soundscape Measurement
As a nearly vibrationless platform, Second Star Robotics’ platform solution is uniquely suited to the application of acoustic data collection due to its deep-diving capability and long endurance. Platforms can carry orthogonal hydrophone arrays or be used in a large distributed synchronized array. Observation can be transmitted to satellite and batteries recharged during surface intervals.
Carbon Flux Monitoring
The biological carbon pump is a collection of processes that our ocean uses to absorb and release atmospheric carbon. By utilizing long-endurance drifting platforms we can collect carbon flux data in the form of particulate organic matter and dissolved carbon.
This data is valuable to gain an understanding of how our oceans affect the composition of our atmosphere.Second Star Robotics platforms are particularly well suited to this task due to their long endurance, precision buoyancy control, sensor payload capacity, and low-cost.
