Cost-effective, flexible, high performance oceanographic data logger with remote communication

MiniMoose/MiniMoose+ from Ocean Origo is a flexible, small, rugged, high performance met-ocean data logger with remote communication capacity. Its small size, low power consumption and great flexibility makes it ideal also for installation on platforms-of-opportunity like navigational buoys, underwater substrates, fish farm equipment, etc. It is capable of interfacing met-ocean sensors like acoustic current meters, CTDs, GNSS/GPS, weather stations, etc. Sensor data is transmitted via satellite, cellular net, ZigBee or LoRa radio (customer's choice) and may optionally be graphically presented on web page in near-real-time. Remote re-configuration is also possible. MiniMoose can be installed on almost any type of buoy/substrate.

Cost-effective, directional wave buoy with remote communication and optional sensors.

WaveWatcher from Ocean Origo is a small, rugged and accurate wave buoy with wireless communication capacity. It measures 'all' wave parameters 'on-board' including wave direction and wave spectrum using MEMS technology. WaveWatcher may be equipped with optional sensors like acoustic current meter, CTD, etc. Comes in two versions: 0.65 m diameter 'WaveWatcher' and 1 m diameter 'WaveWatcher+'. Both versions are big enough for moored operation and may carry optional sensors.

Add-on unit for water sampling bottles.
Samples temperature and depth.

Ocean Origo’s SeaTurtle is an accurate, mercury-free electronic thermometer. It is cost-efficient, battery powered, microprocessor-controlled and designed for operation down to 500 m depth. Instrument fits on virtually all types of water sampling bottles, detects when the bottle releases and samples water temperature and optionally also water pressure/depth at release depth. Data is presented on a back-light display.

SeaTurtle may be set to operate in two sampling modes:
• Turn-around - SeaTurtle detects when bottle turns around.
• String - SeaTurtle detects when bottle releases.

The operator controls SeaTurtle using a small handheld permanent magnet. Instrument can be programmed to enter turn-around mode, string mode, sleep mode, continuously update current temperature/pressure value on the display, show last temperature/pressure registration, etc. SeaTurtle runs on a single ordinary 9 V alkaline or lithium battery cell, easily replaceable by the operator.

Turn-key data buoy systems

Complete turn-key data buoy systems.
Including battery, solar panels, sensors, mooring, etc.

Ocean Origo offers, in cooperation with Navigationsteknik AB, complete turn-key data buoy systems according to customers specification. We supply rugged reliable data buoys for open oceans, coastal zone, near-shore, fjords, harbours, universities, authorities, mussel farms, oil companies and more. Buoys that deliver near-real-time data of salinity, temperature, current, waves, wind, GPS, oxygen, air pressure and many other parameters. Customer selects sensor suite - Ocean Origo may assist in the choice. Thanks to the flexibility, small size and portability of SeaMoose – the electronic key unit - we can use the same basic concept for all sorts and sizes of data buoys. SeaMoose’s field-swappable character allows for rational and rapid field service also from small vessels, a key parameter for achieving low running costs in many applications.

In cooperation with Navigationsteknik, Ocean Origo offers fully equipped data buoys ready for deployment including all necessary components like battery bank, solar panels, nautical equipment, GPS alarm, etc. We also offer complete mooring solutions and mooring components including SeaFlex system for minimizing mechanical mooring stress, customized www-interface and management. Finally, we offer installation, service, operation and surveillance of buoy systems. In short – we can do it all.
