The TRIAXYS wave buoy supplied by AXYS Technologies has been deployed near the wreck since the beginning of the year to provide real-time directional wave data to the salvage crews performing the operation.

Data from the buoy has helped the salvors understand the wave conditions of the site and enables them to make informed decisions on whether technicians are safe to work on the water near the salvage site.

The TRIAXYS™ buoy uses the TRIAXYS Next Wave solid-state sensor, comprised of precision accelerometers, rate gyros, a fluxgate compass and the proprietary WatchMan500™ processor, to accurately measure directional waves.

AXYS Technologies Inc. designs, manufactures, distributes and maintains remote environmental data acquisition, processing and telemetry systems.
