Reliable monitoring systems such as buoys, and USVs enable operational decision-making based on real-time, site-specific data rather than intuition. The highly changeable conditions at sea make offshore operations particularly challenging. Airmar has worked with many autonomous vehicle and buoy OEMs to develop the WeatherStation model 200WX-IPX7 that meets the operational challenges of this extremely harsh environment.

The low-power requirement of this model make it well suited for battery and solar powered applications. And the IPX7 housing is designed for this harsh and demanding environment.
