PROVOR CTS3 DO / DO I

Autonomous oceanographic ARGO profiling float with ARGOS 2 or Iridium transmission (Salinity -Temperature - Dissolved Oxygen - Depth)

PROVOR CTS3 DO and DO I are efficient and reliable autonomous profiling floats designed to acquire CTD  and Dissolved oxygen profiles: from 2000 m to the surface.

Once at the surface, data are sent via satellite and a new cycle begins.

The PROVOR DO is proposed with transmission by ARGOS or IRIDIUM. ARGOS is  one way data collection and positioning by satellites, IRIDIUM associated with GPS  is a two ways communication system enabling  data collection, the positioning  and remote control facilities.

The PROVOR is a  cost-effective float with hydraulic
feature enabling a deployment anywhere in the ocean without preballasting: this enables  to simplify deployments.

It has been developed in industrial partnership with Ifremer.

  • PROVOR CTS3 DO: ARGOS transmission
  • PROVOR CTS3 DO I: IRIDIUM and GPS

 

More than 700 PROVOR have been produced in several versions, including:

  • PROVOR CTS3 for ARGO core mission with CTD
  • PROVOR CTS4  for BioGeoChemical applications

Main characteristics :

  • Sea Bird and Aanderaa sensors proven metrology
  • High sampling rate with Iridium up to 2000 pts
  • Down to 2000 m depth
  • Easy connectivity
  • Self-ballasted float
