PEARL Drifter™: Expanding What We Know About the Seas Through Sensors

Information Sheets

Gaining Visibility into the Unknown

To help expand knowledge of the ocean, PARC has created the PEARL Drifter™ – a low-cost, environmentally safe, ocean surface sensor device. When deployed as a group, a fleet drifts as a distributed sensor network, effectively becoming one giant ocean sensor in a given area, thus forming a powerful platform enabling persistent maritime domain awareness (MDA). Part of the Ocean of Things™, PEARL Drifters can be used for environmental management, climate modeling, border control at sea, traffic management, aquaculture, oceanographic research, and more.
