System Design and Integration

Monitoring System Design and Integration for the Marine and Coastal Environment
System Design & Integration

We combine our knowledge of working with different sensors and sensor manufacturers, and our experience of numerous marine monitoring projects globally, to design, build and test the most appropriate solution for your situation and environment. Our products and services can be delivered directly by us OR as part of a collaborative project with other industry partners. We will be always be flexible with our approach bringing together the best possible expertise for the project so whether you need a standalone provider OR total solution we can help.

We have access to all major manufacturers and suppliers of sensors and other equipment. We procure and integrate sensors that are right for you, not just those available from any single supplier. We can integrate sensors and measurement techniques to measure a range of environmental parameters in all kinds of operating conditions, so you can be sure that your system is designed and built around getting the best outcomes for your business.

Our experience covers:

  • Single sensor systems for wind, wave, tide, current, water level, salinity and numerous other parameters
  • Integrated sensor networks for complex port, marine and coastal operations, and offshore engineering and construction projects
  • Combining real-time datasets with vessel tracking, dynamic positioning and geospatial or mapping data
  • Portable systems for temporary deployments during survey work, vessel movements or offshore installation and maintenance projects
  • Data acquisition and processing for climatic research e.g. sea level monitoring, resource management and environmental protection
  • Innovative systems to support bespoke requirements, such as yacht racing or search and rescue (SAR), including in harsh and difficult environments

All our systems are supplied with a comprehensive System Manual comprising system overview, equipment details including serial numbers, warranties and calibration certificates, plus our recommendations for servicing, maintenance and re-calibration. We provide a complete end-to-end management service, from design through to build, factory and user acceptance testing. We can provide training, mentoring and ongoing support even if we are not involved in the actual installation, which can include 24/7 cover, spares and replacement equipment under our standard terms or a service level agreement tailored to your requirements. We can also help with how you intend to manage your data holdings and make them discoverable and accessible to users.

See our customer case studies for recent examples of projects and systems that we have designed and integrated.

We will always design, build, integrate, install and maintain the most efficient system optimised for your particular needs, reusing your existing sensors and other equipment when and wherever possible.

For more information on why telemetry (data transmission) is such a key factor when designing a monitoring system – please see our Data Telemetry page.
