captured by any instruments mounted on it. “In many experiments, the data very quickly become more valuable than the Wirewalker and its instruments,” Pinkel says. The company is currently upgrading the Wirewalker’s ability to transmit data to shore via GSM, VHS and the Iridium satellite constellation. In the future, they will also harness wave energy to power the instruments that the Wirewalker carries, further extending the potential duration of deployments

Globalstar Satellite Technology to Combat North Sea Pollution

tides.”   Buoys are fitted with a tiny (7x5 cm) SPOT Trace device which includes an integrated GPS receiver, simplex transponder and motion sensor. This Internet of Things (IoT) solution allows researchers to accurately track drift movement using the Globalstar LEO (Low-Earth Orbit) satellite constellation.   Using sophisticated modelling tools to analyse complex ocean currents at the surface, the team can study the movement of waste on the ocean. The University’s 3D computer simulation programmes use the data from the SPOT Trace devices, including depth and wave height, to understand
