New Solar Voyager Drifter Buoy to be used at Bremer Canyon Project

A new solar powered version of Fastwave’s Voyager drifter buoy is to be put
through its paces at the Bremer Canyon Project, a unique marine environmental
research project located off the southern coast of Western Australia. The Voyager
will provide valuable long–term ocean current data for research into the Bremer
Canyon’s amazing deep water ecosystem.

Southern West Australia's Bremer Canyon is an amazing deep water fuelled ecosystem that has proven to be one of the few locations on our planet that offshore killer whales can be reliably encountered throughout the Australian summer months.

Voyager featured in the US Secure Oceans initiative


The Voyager is also featured as one of the key technologies in Secure Oceans, which is a US led initiative to foster the use of advanced technologies to protect the world’s marine resources.

"From the get-go, the Voyager was designed to function differently from a traditional buoy: to be light, affordable, and deliverable by boat. What's more, the Voyager does not just gather data for real time analysis. Everything that it tracks is stored in an ongoing database, gathering long-term information on trends in ocean currents, temperatures and more, which can be put towards ocean management down the road. "
