Hydroacoustic data collection and analysis from edge to cloud

Stream and analyze water-column sonar data in real-time

What is the water column?

More than 80% of the oceans remains uncharted.

The water column describes ocean features at various depths:

  • amout of sunlight received
  • temperature of the water
  • types of marine organisms

OceanStream Capabilities

OceanStream is an integrated platform for hydroacoustic data ingest and analysis, built for edge computing. It is designed to work on remote marine environments with unstable internet connection and enable real-time connectivity to the cloud.

Open-source Interop

OceanStream builds on recognized open-source projects in the Hydroacoustics community, such as echopype and PyEchoLab.

Real-time Connectivity

OceanStream Edge benefits from real-time full-duplex connectivity with the cloud and integrated functionality for offline buffering.

Data Collection & Analysis

OceanStream comes with an integrated Edge component which is capable of running sophisticated rutines at the edge.

AI at the Edge

ML models can be trained in the cloud and deployed on OceanStream Edge for AI inference at the edge and unsupervised learning applications.

Integrated Dev Tools

When building custom modules and solutions for OceanStream, developers have access to an integrated suite of CLI tools and are part of a growing crommunity.

Docker Architecture

OceanStream Edge modules run as Docker containers on a modular architecture.

Know your oceans

  • To be able to "see" underwater at various depths, scientists study the water column using Sonar (Sound Navigation And Ranging) instruments.
  • Sonar instruments (such as the Echosounder) emit sound pulses into the water. If an object is in the path of the pulse, the sound bounces off the object and returns an "echo" that helps to determine the object's location.
  • Sonar can be used to detect objects of different sizes -- the technology varies from the simple "fish finder" used on recreational boats to scientific instrumentation that can monitor fish stocks, identify shipwrecks, and map methane seeps.
