SOOGUARD FerryBox System
Aanderaa SOOGuard provides an on-board solution to shipbourne data collection.
The Aanderaa version of Ferrybox named SOOGuard consists of an automated package of different sensors designed for long-term installation on a ship of opportunity. Measurements of environmental parameters in the surface water along its transect are collected and may be transmitted in near real time.
The system offers easy maintenance and flexibility to collect data from a ship of opportunity. It is based around a 10 bar pressure housing for water flow and measurements. Embedded sensors are connected to our SmartGuard data collection platform for data logging and telemetry.
The standard parameters being measured are:
GPS data from the ship may be collected by the SmartGuard data logger. Some additional water parameters available from the ship (meteorological data etc.) can also be collected by the data logger. Real-time data transmission is possible depending on the ship's capabilities.
Optional parameters to measure:
•Different digital and analog sensors from other sensor suppliers
•Other parameters on demand
