Drifting Buoy

Collecting ocean sound data has never been easier with the Coastal Acoustic Drifting Buoy. Designed with the user in mind, the buoy weighs in at 23KG and measures 1 meter in length and 0.5 meters in width and is easily deployed by a singular user without the use of a crane or any additional equipment. Features include Wi-Fi for real-time set-up, status and spectral display, remote WIFI access (up to 100m), GPS time sync, on/off switch for icListens and buoy, and hydrophone synchronization within one microsecond.

Designed to be acoustically quiet, this buoy has the ability to drift and collect data or to be moored. While drifting the buoy reduces flow noise to improve quality and clarity. With configuration for up to 6 hydrophones or other Ethernet devices, this buoy integrates easily into any project.
