• We're making waves in data collection

  • Data Collection Buoy

    The iSENSYS Data Collection Buoy is a cost-effective and reliable way to collect data in nearshore, estuarine, or intracoastal environments. It can be equipped with a variety of sensors to collect data on a wide range of parameters, including nutrients and fluorometry.


    The buoy is designed to be highly efficient and uses minimal power, hibernating between sampling periods to conserve energy. It can also be updated and have its data broadcast via satellite, and it can detect impact or drift to alert operators. The iSENSYS Data Collection Buoy is currently deployed around the world in places like the British Virgin Islands, Florida, Hawaii, and Trinidad. It is an affordable, yet scalable tool for characterizing an environment.

  • Sometimes a scientist is less interested in the parts per million of a nutrient but more interested in the change or the rate of change of that parameter. We call this relativistic data. Is the algal plume moving toward or away from the beach? Which direction is the spill going? Is the mangrove filtering the influx of high nutrient runoff?


    Relativistic data is less accurate than quantitative data, but it is still very useful for understanding the marine environment and drawing new, unpredicted correlations. iSENSYS's buoys can be used to monitor over 20 water quality parameters, and detect changes in the water column, currents, waveheights, or even detect early signs of coral stressors. When you combine multiple sensors, deployed in a higher density, you can derive a much more correlative characterization of an area. This data can be used to protect help marine ecosystems and ensure the sustainability of fisheries or natural habitat.


    Here are some additional details about the benefits of relativistic data:

    • Relativistic data is less expensive to collect than empirical data. This is because relativistic data can be collected using less precise or expensive sensors.
    • Relativistic data can be collected in much larger quantities than empirical data, primarily due to the lower costs.
    • You can always 'calibrate' or define offsets for relativistic data using a more traditional and accurate co-located sensor array.


    iSENSYS's relativistic buoys are a valuable tool for marine ecologists and conservationists. These buoys can be used to collect data on a variety of marine environmental parameters, which can be used to better understand and protect the marine environment.

  • 24/7 Operations

    Data Collection Buoy requires minimal power to operate, and has energy saving features to allow months of data collection with no maintenance. Its modular construction allows upgrades and maintenance while in the field.

    20+ Data Points

    Data Collection Buoy can be equipped with a variety of sensor combinations including Temperature, Pressure, Turbidity, Conductivity, pH, DO, TDS, ORP, GPS, IMU and many more. Sensor packs can be reconfigured to meet specific needs, or modified by the user.

    Data Density

    In house development, optimised components and modularity makes Data Collection Buoy extremely cost effective. This allows for multiple buoys deployed within the same budget, increasing sampling coverage and data density.


    Satellite, LTE, LoRa, or Wi-Fi connectivity options enable real-time data reporting from anywhere in the world, with the communications method the user finds most effective.


    The Data Collection Buoy is a key component of our autonomous robotic infrastructure. It can be updated and have its data broadcast to other assets or unmanned systems such as fixed wing aircraft, ROVs, or USV. Our USV are also equipped to deploy and collect buoys.


    Data Collection Buoy can detect impact or drift. It can then activate an emergency beacon and start reporting it's positioning to an autonomous surface vessel for recovery.


    Meet our Data Collection Robots


    Our multi-domain fleet of unmanned vehicles covers every possible operating environment from high altitude atmospheric surveys to deep underwater inspections. They can conduct extensive surveys that require weeks of autonomous data collection effort. Or be the first to assess integrity of mine structures after an earthquake putting no human life at risk.



  • MAKO (ASV)

    The Mako is a high-speed, waterjet vessel capable of covering huge areas in a single mission. Based off of a standard personal watercraft, the Mako is easily scalable for manufacturing, allowing rapid development and deployment of large fleets. Capable of carrying a wide variety of payloads and loitering for long durations, Mako is perfect for missions of any size and timescale. Predominant use cases are:

    • Hydrographic, bathyometric, side scan sonar surveys
    • Border, port, and marine protected area security
    • Water quality surveys in rough or swift current waters
    • Persistent security in 'drift' or position keeping mode.


    The Modular-Autonomous-Surface-Catamaran (MASCAT) is purpose-built and designed for long-range water surface and vertical profile sampling missions. MASCAT is capable of handling rough surf while maintaining straight tracking, perfect for missions requiring precise or highly-repeatable paths in windy near-shore or intracoastal areas. Its large platform makes MASCAT ideal for large or otherwise cumbersome payloads or sensor packages. Idea use cases are:

    • Water quality sensing with high frequency and grid spacing.
    • Bottom contour and side-scan mapping
    • Buoy or sensor deployment

    BlueROV 2 (ROV)

    Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle. Can perform a series of survey, mapping or sample collection missions at depths up to 1000 feet. This unit is equipped with Doppler Velocity Log for countour mapping or position keeping, an HD camera with efficient light system and manipulator. Scanning, locationing, and virtual coring sonars as well as sediment sampler can be added should the mission require it. You can also add an ultrasonic thickness gauge for structural assessments.


    The Badger is a smaller 1-meter wheelbase mini-ATV with fully autonomous pathing capabilities. Its cargo pods are relatively large for its size and its low stature is well suited for ground-based inspection and sampling of soil and fauna. Badger is the perfect tool for mine structural surveying and agricultural applications, as well as SnR missions where sending in human force can prove too risky.

    Wolverine (AGV)

    The Wolverine is a 3-meter wheelbase off-road capable ground vehicle capable of autonomous or remotely operated data collection missions. With robust power and capable off-road chassis, as well as a large payload capacity, the Wolverine can carry a wide variety and quantity of scientific sensors or payloads into otherwise impassible environments.

    • Agricultural applications for spray treatments or spreading
    • HazMAT or CBRNE

    MPR-17 (UAV)

    Universal Aerial Platform capable of not just surveying or LiDAR mapping, its payload capabilities allow it to be a universal sprayer/spreader for farming. The capacity to analyze the problem and dispense treatment with surgical precision makes it a versatile, cost-effective solution for various uses. Unlike quad or multi-rotor UAVs, MPR-17 has a single rotor/tail rotor design allowing for extended flight times and heavier payloads.

    • Multi- and Hyperspectral Imaging
    • LiDAR
    • Photogrammetry
    • Agricultural electrostatic spray and dosed spread treatments
    • Intilligence, Surveillance, Reconissance

    Mosquito (UAV)

    Latest of our autonomous platforms. Based on a "Mosquito" Rotor/tail rotor single-seat helicopter chassis. The removal of pilot extra payload capacity and extended range benefits make it a unique areal vehicle capable of missions over 2 hours.
