Autonomous ARGO profiling float with Argos transmission (Salinity - Temperature - Pressure)

ARVOR L provides salinity, temperature and pressure profiles up to 2000 meters depth. Data and positioning are achieved  ARGOS  satellites.  Mission with two depth values alternated and grounding avoidance function are settable by user before mission.

With self-ballast and very light design, ARVOR L 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.

Bluetooth technology enables easy configuration before mission. Qualified  technology for ARGO project :

  • Sea Bird electronics proven CTD metrology
  • Self-ballasted float
  • Up to 190 cycles@2000 m, 10 days, 112 points
  • Argos Doppler  positioning
  • Easy connectivity using RF Bluetooth
  • Fully operational, light and easy to deploy float
  • Weight less than 20 kg
