See The Ocean From an Amazing Perspective

The SeaSonde HF radar system by CODAR Ocean Sensors is your solution for making continuous, wide-area ocean observations. The SeaSonde will provide you with years of real-time data over large coverage areas, with ranges up to 200 km -- This is not possible with any other technology!

The SeaSonde is a compact, non-contact surface current and wave measurement system that can be deployed and maintained easily, and will perform even during extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes.

High Quality Data
CODAR Ocean Sensors' patented technologies, including our processing algorithms, allow the SeaSonde to produce extremely accurate 2-D surface current velocity maps and measures the most important wave parameters. Patented antenna design and processing algorithms enable the system with up to 360ยบ coverage. The patented pulsed FMCW eliminates the range aliasing and antenna wind-vibration noise inherent to other HF system designs.

Focus on Your Application

The SeaSonde is an off-the-shelf tool that allows you to focus on applying the data rather than the technology of collecting it. Whether your work efforts involve guiding search and rescue operations, providing critical information to maritime vessels, or driving and improving numerical circulation models, the SeaSonde will be an immense aid.

System Highlights:
Convenient: Nothing in the water: a truly non-contact sensor. All hardware is located on the coast or an offshore structure. The patented compact antenna design greatly simplifies siting requirements.

Reliable: All system hardware and software are developed by our own staff specifically for continuous, long-term field operations, and consistent data outputs.

Flexible: The software parameters are highly flexible, yet designed to work smoothly, eliminating any need for you to become a computer programmer or radar expert.

Automated: Data can automatically arrive at your office at your preferred intervals, and can also be sent directly to the Web for public viewing.  †

Remote Access: Data retrieval, system monitoring, parameter modifications and even factory support are all conducted through system remote access.  †

Low Power: SeaSondes' low power consumption allow for working off-the-grid with alternative energy sources.

Cross-Platform Data Format: All data products are stored as ASCII files for convenient data transfer to various computer platforms, incorporation into numerical models and GIS programs.

Compatible with Coastal Culture:  Where visual impact and minimum land-use footprint are all important, nothing beats the SeaSonde ultra-compact design.

†  Communication Link Required.
