Oceanographic & Meteorological Applications
CLS AMERICA HAS BEEN A LEADER IN ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING FOR THREE DECADES. OUR SOLUTIONS PROVIDE SCIENTISTS, MANAGERS, AND INDUSTRIES WITH NEW, COMPREHENSIVE VIEWS OF OUR OCEAN AND TERRESTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS.
The ocean is profoundly influential on the Earth’s weather and climate system. Sustained long-term ocean and atmospheric observations are essential to describing the ocean's role, understanding its modulating and moderating processes and developing the capability to predict short term weather and climate variability as well as long-term climate change. CLS America provides the global satellite communications capabilities that enable the required observations to be collected from drifting and moored buoys, autonomous profiling floats and underwater gliders worldwide, to be consolidated and disseminated electronically to the operational and research institutions that need them.
More than 8,000 birds, marine animals and terrestrial animals are tracked constantly using miniaturized Argos transmitters. Combining position information and data about animals allows wildlife biologists to better understand their behavior, feeding strategies, breeding and adaptation to their environment. Such observations provide the basis for conservation measures that are benefiting many endangered species. In addition to its ecological value, this work meets the need to learn more about human origins and our environment's natural resources.
For decades CLS America has partnered with the global ocean and meteorological community providing the satellite-based communications and data services essential for all operational and research data collection activities. Building upon years of supporting this global community with Argos communications and services, CLS America added Iridium airtime and data service to its offer several years ago and is now supporting all types of data collection platforms and systems.
Thorough our strong global communications support for thousands of drifting and moored buoys, profiling floats, underwater gliders and fixed weather stations CLS America continues to be a trusted collaborator of many national and international programs including the Argo Profiling Float Program, the Global Tropical Moored Buoy Program, the Surface Global Drifter Program and many others.
