Core Technology

AXYS uses its’ proprietary WatchMan500™ Network Solution on all of our data collection platforms. The WatchMan500™ was designed as the new generation of payload for the AXYS marine buoy and terrestrial weather information systems to provide desktop to sensor monitoring and control, including dynamic onboard control and data storage capabilities. Besides managing the sensor payload, the WatchMan500™ is also used to manage the platform power generation and storage system, and interfaces with custom and commercial sensors, equipment, software, and telemetry.

The TRIAXYS Wave Sensor is a highly accurate and exceptionally reliable sensor for measuring waves and directional wave spectra. The innovative design incorporates leading-edge technology, which makes this wave sensor easy to use and ideal for rugged marine conditions.

Data Management

The AXYS Analytics Portal Services (AXYS-APS) Platform is a suite of software applications to control and configure all systems and sensors in a network, as well as collect, store, process, and disseminate data transmitted from a variety of telemetries. AXYS-APS includes a robust and secure web-based geo-portal that allows users to visualize and integrate collections of different data types across space, time, parameter and other dimensions, which will result in increased utilization of data for improved resource management, planning and research efforts.


The AXYS Service Team has extensive experience in the training, deployment and maintenance for operational buoy programs. AXYS technicians are capable of board level diagnostics/repair in the field, and individual electronic component level diagnostics/repair in the lab.
