Underway Systems

Underway systems provide long-term monitoring while mounted in research vessels or ships of opportunity (such as ferries, cruise ships, and freighters). Sea-Bird's underway systems include our shipboard thermosalinographs (SBE 21 and SBE 45) for measuring conductivity and temperature (and determining the resulting salinity, density, sound velocity, and other parameters of interest) and a hull temperature sensor (SBE 48).

The Environmental Characterization Optics (ECO) series of sensors incorporate a common set of options with a single basic design to make them ideal for a wide variety of deployments.
Based on the highly successful ac-9, the ac-spectra (ac-s) offers almost an order of magnitude increase in spectral resolution of in-situ absorption and beam attenuation. The 4 nm resolution allows for spectral "fingerprinting" and deconvolution analysis.
The Triplet is a a special-order, three-optical-sensor instrument available in a user-defined configuration. The Triplet addresses the need for multiple simultaneous scattering and fluorescence sensors for autonomous and unattended measurement platforms.
Based upon the highly successful WET Labs’ ECO sensor, Sea-Bird Scientific has developed an industry leading detection technology creating a 5X optical resolution improvement over its predecessor.
The Sea-Bird Scientific SeaOWL UV-A™ SLC introduces a new in-situ oil-in-water sensor specifically designed for integration into the Teledyne Webb Research Slocom glider.
The Power and Communication Conversion System (PCCS)
The C-Star incorporates a novel monolithic housing with a highly integrated opto-electronic design to provide a low cost, compact solution for underwater measurements of beam transmittance.
Based on the highly successful AC9 and ACS, ACS-5000 offers almost an order of magnitude increase in spectral resolution of in-situ absorption and beam attenuation. The 4 nm resolution allows for spectral "fingerprinting" and deconvolution analysis.
The WETStar fluorometer provides breakthrough performance for detecting various types of fluorescence. It uses a central axial optical tube to provide efficient signal output.
WET Labs' UBAT is designed to measure mechanically stimulated bioluminescence in both coastal and oceanic systems from 0–600 m in depth.
Externally powered thermosalinograph for shipboard determination of sea surface (pumped-water) conductivity and temperature. Internal memory, acquisition of NMEA navigational data and remote temperature data, and capability to interface with auxiliary sensors.
Small, externally powered thermosalinograph designed for shipboard determination of sea surface (pumped-water) conductivity and temperature. Can be integrated with interface box for NMEA data and acquisition of remote temperature data.
SBE 48 Hull Temperature Sensor
Temperature recorder installed with magnets just below water line on inside of ship, providing shipboard determination of sea surface temperature.
