The launch of Miros’ most recent innovation, Miros Speed Through Water, hails a new era for marine efficiency. We sat down with Senior Sensor Development Manager, Rune Gangeskar, to explore what makes the technology tick and how it is being applied to real-world scenarios.
Miros unveils Speed Through Water by Wavex. Delivering highly accurate data without the need for any submerged equipment, and with better accuracy than traditional instrumentation.
Wavex provides directional wave spectra and wave parameters based on digitised X-band radar ocean surface images with no need for calibration using external references.
Miros’ Wavex facilitates real-time monitoring of ocean surface currents from moving vessels, without the use of equipment immersed in water.
There are lots of questions – and misconceptions – about vessel performance reporting in the shipping and maritime industries. The manually produced “noon report” – a daily data sheet prepared by a vessel’s captain – logs the vessel’s position and other relevant standardised data. Like most manual processes, however, these are subjective, time-consuming and prone to human error. Yet many business decisions that propel the industry forward are based on noon report insights. Real-time ocean surface measurements are turning the tide on this unrefined practice.
