High & low depth profiling floats

STANDARD PROFILING FLOATS | BIO & SPECIFIC PROFILING FLOATS | HIGH & LOW DEPTH PROFILING FLOATS

nke Instrumentation has developed very high and very low depth profiling floats. The DEEP ARVOR provides salinity, temperature and pressure profiles up to 4000 meters depth, using proven ARFO sensor and the data can also be transmitted by iridium satellite system and the float is GPS positioned. At the contrary, the ARVOR C is a subsurface profiling float designed to operate in coastal environment and perform oceanographic measurement as a pseudo-eulerian station It can perform more than 300 profiles and transmits its data via the iridium satellite system.

DEEP ARVOR: TS, 4000m

Description - The DEEP ARVOR provides salinity, temperature and pressure profiles up to 4000 meters depth, using proven ARGO sensors. Data are transmitted by IRIDIUM satellite system and the float is GPS positioned.

With self-ballast and light design, DEEP-ARVOR is self-ballasted and its light weight allows easy deployment.

Design has been performed by Ifremer well qualified Arvor subassemblies and new hull technologies nke instrumentation achieves the industrial, production and commercialization.

ARVOR C: TS, DO, 400m

Description - ARVOR-C is a subsurface profiling float designed to operate in coastal environment and perform oceanographic measurements as a pseudo-eulerian station.

Its design has been optimized to reduce its drift thanks to a seabed standby and anti-drift claws, an optimized profiling speed (~25 cm/s),and a short data transmission duration.

It can perform more than 300 profiles, and transmits its data in real time via the Iridium satellite system. The ARVOR-C is fitted with "ARGO" used CTD.

The design of the ARVOR-C has used elements and know-how used in the ARVOR and PROVOR offshore profiling floats range.

PROVOR SPI: TS, DO, NO3 pH, 800m

Description - PROVOR SPI is designed to operate under ice. It slides along a tighted cable hanged under an Ice Tether Platform (ITP).

The base of the PROVOR SPI is the PROVOR CTS3 designed for the ARGO project. The firmware has been upgraded to optimize the diving mission. The ITP is an amphibious buoy which can operate as well on the ice than as floating offshore.

The communication with buoy is achieved by means of an inductive link communication with the buoy uses the bidirectional iridium communication system. The PROVOR SPI is divided in several easily transportable elements to enable transport by small aircrafts until deployment area.

PROVOR SPI has been successfully deployed during Barneo campaign in the frame of the Iaoos project.
