When an earthquake generates a tsunami, timely forecasts can save lives. DART buoys measure the tsunami as it propagates
through the ocean, transmitting data used to generate a real-time
forecast. The DART Easy To Deploy tsunami buoy is flexible and cost-effective. Conventional moorings are equipment-heavy, manpower-intensive, and difficult to deploy in heavy seas. The complete mooring is delivered to the ship
on a deployment pallet and safely and easily deployed. The mooring line and instrumentation spools
as the anchor drops. When a tsunami occurs, the tsunami wave is
measured by the tsunameter and transmitted via satellite to the Tsunami
Warning Centers in real time. The DART Easy To Deploy technology is robust and proven.
