Real Time MetOcean Data Telemetry
Fugro EMU Limited has developed a unique capability to deliver real time oceanographic and meteorological data direct to web applications and clients' desktops. This real time data telemetry capability provides a vital tool when making operational decisions in all marine offshore and coastal industries, whether to avoid unnecessary weather down time, improve offshore health and safety or for the selection of the most appropriate vessels for the local conditions.
Metocean data is captured at regular short term intervals (e.g. 1Hz) using equipment such as wave buoys, tide gauges, data buoys and meteorological stations.
Data Transfer - Telemetry
Data is telemetered locally via high frequency radio link, or globally via satellite direct to Fugro EMU MetOcean office. Unique data transfer systems allow data to be uploaded to a website in real time at up to 1Hz for immediate display.
Data from a diverse range of instrumentation is managed by Fugro EMU's bespoke in-house software and is distributed by computing software that monitors and processes data in real time.
Data is sent in real time to the client's website. The graphical display can be tailored to client requirements.
Quality control – 24 / 7 Monitoring
Quality control checks are performed on the incoming oceanographic and meteorological data and if necessary, alerts are sent to the Fugro EMU MetOcean department on a 24 hour, 7 days a week monitored system. This enables a rapid response by the dedicated standby MetOcean team.
