Surface Drifting Buoy

The surface drifting buoy is a kind of buoy that follows different layers of deep current drift.

Easy to find

Location via GPS or Beidou.


Lagrange's principle. 


It can not only measure ocean currents but also observe the Ocean surface temperature.

Data Transmission

The surface drifting buoy supports remote deployment through Iridium to get the location and data transmission frequency.
