Availability of reliable, real-time ocean surface data can improve the safety, efficiency and performance of offshore and marine operations, as well as coastal monitoring, but the quality of the data is dependent on accurate calibration. Calibration of wave spectra and integrated wave parameters from radar-based measurement systems has historically depended upon external reference sensors, such as wave buoys, which can present a number of challenges.
Miros’ ocean surface monitoring systems support fully automatic calibration, providing the user with high-quality wave and current parameters for a broad range of radar types and measurement conditions, without the need for manual calibration, helping to reduce installation and operational costs.
No Waiting Around: Miros’ Plug & Play Sensors
Imagine having purchased a leading wave measurement system, only to be told that you need access to an additional system to calibrate that which you just bought. The calibration process involves considerable logistics, additional costs, and can take weeks if not months to complete, impacting your timeline and your budget. With Miros, this is never the case.
Miros’ algorithms automatically calibrate for accurate measurement of ocean state parameters. In fact, all of Miros’ radar-based sensors are able to calibrate automatically. Local, real-time ocean surface measurements can improve vessel and structure fatigue assessments, provide input to bridge and decision-support systems, as well as to marine, crane and loading operations, and help to optimise fuel consumption, route planning, cargo safety, passenger comfort, and coastal monitoring too.
Automatic Calibration: No Reference Equipment Required
Though this statement might sound too good to be true, it’s been a reality for users of Miros technology for several years. We provide wave measurement systems that don’t disappoint their user by damaging budgets and obliterating schedules.
Whether you’re using the WaveFinder to measure airgap during operations and maintenance activities, harnessing Wavex to gather accurate speed through water data, monitoring coastal conditions using the Wave & Current Radar, or observing waves within ports and harbours with the RangeFinder, the story is the same – Simply connect your Miros sensors to power and the Internet in order to provide all relevant stakeholders with access to real-time ocean surface data, anywhere, anytime and on any device.
