CURRENTNOW - HIGH PRECISION CURRENT MEASUREMENT
"We were very impressed by the accuracy and usefulness of the CurrentNow system. It gained us a significant advantage in our race strategies over the past years."
“The tactical tool „CurrentNow“ for measuring sea currents provided me and my coach with the right information at the right time for winning various medals at the Paralympics and World Championships over the last years.”
The system is based on a less than 1kg light drifting buoy with a range of sensors. CurrentNow is coupled by wireless connection to a portable computer or a special handset on a boat.
Since no fixed point of reference like a buoy is required the measurements with the CurrentNow system can be taken very quickly in almost all weather conditions. Often measurements take less than one minute. Also with manual measurements the inaccuracies are large, i.e. estimation of the direction by handheld compass and “no tape measure on the water”.
