Wavex® is a virtual sensor designed for wave and current measurements using data from standard marine X-band radars. The sensor is operative at all ship speeds as well as from fixed locations. Additionally, Speed Through Water by Wavex accurately provides a vessel’s STW without the use of any submerged equipment.
Wavex® captures and processes sea surface backscatter data from a standard X-band marine navigation radar. Through robust, accurate and adaptive algorithms it calculates directional wave, surface current and speed through water (STW) data. Measurements are made in a relevant area of the waterbody, unaffected by the vessel itself.
Wavex now provides easy and secure data access, both locally and remotely, by utilising modern IoT technologies – view and analyse real-time and historical data anytime, anywhere, on any device.
