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.

Miros was founded in May of 1984, with the Wave Radar as its flagship product. A lot has changed in the years that have passed since then, but there’s one familiar face that’s still making waves (and measuring them) at our HQ in Asker, just outside of Oslo, Norway.
Miros’ wave radar technology delivers accurate, real-time, dry sea-state measurements of the ocean surface without the maintenance and costs related to using equipment which is directly exposed to seawater.
How to Use Cloud-Integrated Wave Radars to Mitigate Risk While Creating Operational and Cost Efficiencies?
At the end of 2018, Miros launched a brand new offering, making dry sea-state measurements available as a service through the Cloud. For our customers, Miros’ Cloud-integrated wave radars mean flexible access to real-time data without having to cover the investment in data collection and transfer equipment.
