HF-RADAR: SeaSonde


The SeaSonde HF radar system by CODAR Ocean Sensors is your solution for making continuous, wide-area ocean observations. The SeaSonde will provide you with years of real-time data over large coverage areas, with ranges up to 200 km -- This is not possible with any other technology!

The SeaSonde is a compact, non-contact surface current and wave measurement system that can be deployed and maintained easily, and will perform even during extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes.

High Quality Data
CODAR Ocean Sensors' patented technologies, including our processing algorithms, allow the SeaSonde to produce extremely accurate 2-D surface current velocity maps and measures the most important wave parameters. Patented antenna design and processing algorithms enable the system with up to 360º coverage. The patented pulsed FMCW eliminates the range aliasing and antenna wind-vibration noise inherent to other HF system designs.

Focus on Your Application

The SeaSonde is an off-the-shelf tool that allows you to focus on applying the data rather than the technology of collecting it. Whether your work efforts involve guiding search and rescue operations, providing critical information to maritime vessels, or driving and improving numerical circulation models, the SeaSonde will be an immense aid.
