Integration and Deployment
Whether you want to work alongside us in our integration labs, or prefer a turnkey solution complete with aircraft or ship deployment anywhere in the world, MRV Systems is committed to delivering unmatched service and responsiveness.
Our sole focus is to provide oceanographic researchers with a faster, better, more cost-effective way to get collect data from the world’s oceans. With deep ties to the research community, we view ourselves as a partner, not just a vendor.
The first 20 MRV S2A floats were deployed in the South Pacific in September and October 2011 as part of the ARGO program. ARGO is a global array of over 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that measure temperature, salinity, and velocity of the upper 2000 meters of the ocean, returning data within minutes after collection. The ARGO program has developed a large user community within universities, government labs and meteorological/climate analysis/forecasting centers. The need for global ARGO observations will continue indefinitely, and the technologies and design of the array and floats will evolve to meet the needs of the scientists characterizing the global ocean.
