SMILE II - IFREMER - UNIV. CAEN
Very high frequency monitoring buoy
The SMILE project is a Very High Frequency instrumented buoy. This operational prototype buoy is the result of a partnership between Ifremer, The University of Caen, and nke-instrumentation. The project is co-funded by the Water Agency Seine Normandie and Basse-Normandie ERDF.
This measuring buoy is undergoing certification by the SOMLIT network implemented by the CNRS. It provides data every 20 minutes and subsurface (-1,50m).
- multiparameter probe (T ° C, salinity, DO, Fluorimetry, turbidity)
- BY Sensor
- Production Sensor Primary WFP
- Weather Channel.
- Auto-Analyzer to nutrients (nitrate, phosphate and silicate).
- Passive chemical sensors.
- PCO2 sensor.
Following the positive feedback from customers after commissioning of the buoy SMILE I GEPS Techno delivered a buoy OCTOPUSEA delivering almost twice as much energy as project SMILE I for the same floating body.
