Remote level, tide and wave monitoring Waves are the main contributing factor to downtime in offshore, shipping and harbor operations. Reliable and real time wave data are essential for maximized use of weather windows, increased operational efficiency and improved safety during offshore operations.
The Radac WG5 directional wave radar accurately measures wave direction, wave height, wave period and tide. No water contact, no maintenance and no (re-) calibration
With an array of three radars the elevations of the sea surface is measured at three positions. Knowing the slopes and the phase relations, the directional spectrum can be accurately calculated.
Processing unit facilitates remote servicing, data collecting, data processing and presentation. The Onboard wave radar, mostly installed on the bow of the ship, measures the distance to the water surface. The distances measured have to be compensated for the vertical motions of the radar itself
