PROVOR SPI

Argo Profiling float for polar regions

PROVOR SPI is designed to operate under ice. It slides along a tighted cable hanged under an Ice Tether Platform (ITP)

The base of the PROVOR SPI is the PROVOR CTS3 designed for the ARGO project. The firmware has been upgraded to optimize the diving mission. The ITP is an amphibious buoy which can operate as well on the ice than as floating offshore.

The communication with buoy is achieved by means of an inductive link, communication with the buoy uses the bidirectional iridium communication system. The PROVOR SPI is divided in several easily transportable elements to enable transport by small aircrafts until deployment area.

PROVOR SPI has been successfully deployed during Barneo campaign in the frame of the Iaoos project.
