AXYS 3 Meter buoy

 

XYS Technologies Inc (AXYS) recently shipped two 3-Meter buoys for the Centro de Hidrografia da Marinha (CHM) of the Diretoria de Hidrografia e Navegacao (DHN) in Niteroi. The buoys will be added to the PNBOIA (GOOS-Brasil) buoy network, bringing the total number of 3-Meter buoys owned by the Navy to ten.

 The buoys will be deployed offshore in an effort to provide complete coverage of the Brazil coastline. They will be integrated using AXYS’ reliable WatchMan500 controller and various sensors to measure directional waves, currents, wind speed and direction, air pressure, air temperature, relative humidity and solar radiation. Real-time data will be sent to Brazil Navy officials via ARGOS and/or Inmarsat satellite telemetry. The buoys are also equipped with an AIS transponder to provide the AtoN message 21 and MET/Hydro message 8 to mariners in the vicinity of the buoys.

AXYS personnel, along with personnel from Woods Hole Group do Brasil – AXYS’ representative in Brazil – will provide additional system training and buoy commissioning services to the CHM staff prior to buoy deployments in June, 2014.

“We’ve very proud to be a part of the PNBOIA network managed by the CHM. Over the past decade, we’ve developed a strong relationship with CHM, providing systems for PNBOIA as well as other applications,” says Chad MacIsaac, International Business Development for Marine Systems.
