Wave & Current Radar

The Miros Wave & Current Radar is a high-performance, remote, dry sensor for the measurement of directional wave spectra and surface currents. Our Wave & Current Radar is based on proven technology which has been successfully providing ocean insights to the maritime market for over 35 years.

The Wave & Current Radar is being continuously developed to meet the latest modern requirements. In fact, it is now available as an IoT-enabled sensor. This means that it is truly plug-and-play only needing power and an internet connection to give secure access to immediate, real-time data about the ocean state.

Easy access to data, anytime, anywhere

It is a dry sensor which does not require the maintenance and related costs of a buoy

Easy installation, all you need is power and internet to get started

High data reliability and availability

How Does It Work?

The wave and current radar observes the ocean surface in a semi-circle at a distance of 180-450 meters, depending on the installation height which is typically 25-80 meters. The selected frequency of operations ensures a very high degree of penetration through precipitation and sea spray and provides accurate measurements in harsh weather situations of any kind.

What Makes the Miros Wave & Current Radar Unique?

It is the only sensor in the world which utilizes a dual footprint pulse Doppler method for wave measurements as well as a microwave dual frequency method for measuring surface current. It has been verified for accuracy and high reliability in a number of independent comparisons. The Miros wave and current radar provides the same data quality as a high-performance buoy but the dry SM-050 has a higher availability.
