ARVOR I

Autonomous ARGO profiling float with Iridium transmission. Salinity / Temperature / Pressure

ARVOR I provides salinity, temperature and pressure profiles with posion information thanks to an integrated GPS receiver. Data are transmitied via Iridium satellites network.

Bluetooth technology enables easy and fast configuration before mission. Iridium downlink enables parameters modification remotely as soon as the ARVOR I surfaces.

With self-ballast and very light design, ARVOR I can be deployed by one person.

It capitalises on both the know-how of Ifremer in floats activities and designing qualified subassemblies ; and of nke on industrial product development.
