Abstract

The proposed low cost systems shows the results obtained in the implementation and testing in marine environment of a Innovative Monitoring Underwater Buoy Systems for Marine and Rivers installation with IR-Cam, Instrumental Telemetry and Acoustic Data Acquisition Capability (MUnBuS). This concerning a innovative Monitoring Underwater Buoy Systems that can be remotely controlled from the ground, air, satellite and sea and from a Center of Supervision Telecontroller And Data Acquisition and Monitoring (Mobile-STADAM Center). The Buoy is hosts for the radio or satellite communication equipment, the downloading and telemetering data equipment and the photovoltaic power supply, board and underwater instrumentation. The underwater buoy, that is rendered in negative trim, is anchored on the sea floor that must be investigated and is equipped with submarine monitoring equipment and infrared cameras where the measured data and the image result are linked with the surface buoy through an ethernet cable to fiber optical. The STADAM Center retransmit all data received in steaming online to the land or other analysis center. This complete system can be solved the typical logistic and technical sea problems type: water column, sedimentological analysis, differences in temperature bathymetric, geological information, amount of dissolved oxygen. The system is also applicable on lakes, river and ports monitoring, organic fish problems and biological submarine research. The underwater acoustics buoy with the environmental monitoring can also be useful with particular attention to submarine climate change impact indicators, surveillance of marine protected areas or archaeological sites. The procedures applied in the present article, as well as the main equations used, are the result of previous applications made in different technical fields that show a good replicability (15-18, 19-22).
