CODAR_icon_convenitent

Convenient

Nothing in the water: a truly non-contact sensor. All hardware is located on the coast or an offshore structure.

 
CODAR_icon_remote

Remote

Data retrieval, system monitoring, parameter modifications and even factory support are all conducted through system remote access.

CODAR_icon_reliable

Reliable

All system hardware and software are developed for continuous, long-term field operations, and consistent data outputs.

 
CODAR_icon_low_power

Low Power

SeaSondes’ low power consumption allow for working off-the-grid with alternative energy sources.

CODAR_icon_flexible

Flexible

Highly flexible software parameters designed to work smoothly, without the need for programming or radar skills.

 
CODAR_icon_cross_platform

Cross-Platform

All data products are stored as ASCII files for convenient data transfer to various computer platforms, incorporation into numerical models and GIS programs.

CODAR_icon_automated

Automated

Data can automatically arrive at your office at your preferred intervals, and can also be sent directly to the Web for public viewing.

 
CODAR_icon_coastal_culture

Coastal Culture

Where visual impact and minimum land-use footprint are all important, nothing beats the SeaSonde ultra-compact design.
