metOcean telematics - iSVP Iridium Drifter

The SVP Iridium® drifter is an innovative addition to the spherical drifter family. The SVP Iridium® drifter has been designed and thoroughly tested to track ocean current and provide environmental data at a designated depth beneath the ocean surface.

The SVP Iridium® drifter is truly unique. The buoy utilizes the dependable bi-directional Iridium® satellite system to communicate and to transmit essential scientific data. Iridium® telemetry is the most cost effective means of transmitting data for environmental applications. The SVP Iridium® drifter is also remarkably versatile. Additional sensor options are available, which included: air pressure (BP), salinity (CT) and GPS positioning.
