ARVOR C

ARVOR-C is a subsurface profiling float designed to operate in coastal environment and perform oceanographic measurements as a pseudo-eulerian station.

ARVOR-C is a subsurface profiling float designed to operate in coastal environment and perform oceanographic measurements as a pseudo-eulerian station.

Its design has been optimized to reduce its drift thanks to a seabed standby and anti-drift claws, an optimized profiling speed (~25 cm/s),and a short data transmission duration.

It can perform more than 300 profiles, and transmits its data in real time via the Iridiumsatellite system.The ARVOR-C is fitted with "ARGO" used CTD.

The design of the ARVOR-C has used elements and know-how used in the ARVOR and PROVOR offshore profiling floats range.

Main characteristics :

  • Virtual mooring
  • Sampling over the entire water column
  • Up to 300 cycles (lithium cells)
  • Operation depth : 300 meters
  • Up to one set of measure per meter
  • Light and easy to deployd (22kg)
  • "Sea-Bird" proven CTD metrology
  • Two ways Iridium transmission & remote control
  • Self ballasted
