AXYS Technologies said that AMEC will be the first to receive the TRIAXYS Next Wave II sensor integrated into its WatchMate met-ocean monitoring buoy. The TRIAXYS Next Wave II has been released as the new wave sensor for measuring directional waves and motion. Improvements include reduced power consumption, reduction in the sensor size and weight and an increase in wave data accuracy and resolution. AMEC will use the WatchMate 1.8 DM buoy to receive comprehensive environmental data, which will support marine construction operations. The data will be sent to AMEC in real-time via cell phone and satellite telemetries.
