The AOB addresses the requirements or a drifting acoustic recording platform with surface expression. This surface expression allows for online data transmission to shore. The acoustic and non-acoustic sensors are vertically positioned in the water column which is preferred set up for sea bottom (geophysical surveying) and water column (oceanography) observation. This observation may be active using purpose operated sound sources (fixed or mobile) or using ocean noise (surface noise or shipping).
Application on Marine Sector:
Underwater communications, marine mammals monitoring, fisheries, shipping, management, ocean tomography, bottom estimation, and others.
