IoT has yet to consider 70% of the world’s surface!
The Internet of Things (IoT) wave is providing direct integration of the physical world into the digital world on a global scale. This is creating a disruptive step-change in the way mankind is organized, from work practices and leisure activities through to how industry is run.
The world’s oceans need IoT
While the IoT revolution is impressive, it has yet to consider 70% of the world’s surface – the ocean. New technologies are required to bring IT infrastructure to the oceans and that’s where the largest opportunities are for both industry and the environmental challenges we face.
70% Ocean Industries
The global ocean economy, measured in terms of the ocean-based industries’ contribution to economic output and employment, is significant. Preliminary calculations on the basis of the OECD’s Ocean Economy Database value the ocean economy’s contribution in 2010 very conservatively at USD 1.5 trillion, or approximately 2.5% of world gross value added (GVA).
WFS Technologies has developed the building blocks for Subsea Internet of Things (SIoT) enabling Smart Devices to extend wireless IoT networks through water and through ground, providing a low-cost alternative to cables, connectors and buoys. The industries served include Oil and Gas, Renewable Energy, Marine Equipment, Environmental and Defense. Key customer benefits include improved asset productivity, asset integrity management, safety and reducing costs for automation in the subsea environment.
Predictive analytics at the network edge with Seatooth© and Terratooth© smart devices
Seatooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data through water and the water-air boundary using low frequency radio waves from 1 Hz to 2.485 GHz. WFS Technologies Ltd launched Seatooth, the world’s first commercially available underwater radio modem to the subsea market in 2006.
Terratooth is an underground IoT and Cloud Computing Solution. TerraTooth enabled networks of smart, wireless sensors and devices to provide actionable operational intelligence to increase performance, reduce cost and reduce risk.
Non-intrusive, pipe-mounted wireless temperature monitoringSeatooth® PipeLogger is a retrofit subsea wireless temperature logger/controller for use on XTs, pipelines, risers and manifolds. It measure process temperature without penetration. It is a cost effective alternative to hard wired systems for production or drilling control, flow assurance and asset integrity monitoring and calibration.
Wireless Data Logger and ControllerThe Seatooth® S100 is a Subsea Internet of Things (SIoT) smart wireless device designed for automation of Asset Integrity, Flow Assurance, Subsea Cloud Computing and subsea vehicle communications. Incorporating Seatooth Endure® power management and ExtremeEdge® analytics technologies, Seatooth S100 SIoT systems operate for up to 30 years between battery swaps.
Subsea Internet of Things® - Smart Wireless DeviceThe Seatooth® Hybrid is a Subsea Internet of Things® (SIoT) device incorporating Seatooth Radio, Acoustic and Optical wireless communications, local control, ExtremeEdge® data analytics and Seatooth Endure® battery management.
Coil Tubing Fatigue Monitoring SystemSeatooth® CTFM (Coil Tubing Fatigue Monitoring System) is a retrofit wireless Solution for monitoring the cumulative fatigue experienced by Coiled Tubing (CT) during pipeline pre-commissioning and intervention operations.
Environmental Monitoring: Wide area sensor networksSeatooth® S400 Mk3 is the latest generation of Subsea Internet of Things® (SIoT) smart wireless devices designed for automation of Asset Integrity, Flow Assurance, Subsea Cloud Computing and subsea vehicle communications. Incorporating Seatooth Endure® power management and ExtremeEdge® analytics technologies, Seatooth S400 SIoT systems operate for up to 30 years between battery swaps.
Survey, Deployment and Pipeline Pre-commissioningSeatooth® WiPS is a subsea wireless pressure sensor system for use on pipelines, risers, manifolds and hydraulic control lines. It incorporates sensors to measure process pressure and seawater temperature, a datalogger and a display. Collected data can be wirelessly retrieved by a ROV or diver. It is a cost effective alternative to hard wired systems for flow assurance and asset integrity monitoring.
Wireless Video Streaming SystemSeatooth® Video is a real time subsea wireless video streaming solution. It has been designed to save costs and improve safety by removing the need for a second ROV during complex subsea interventions. The Seatooth Video wireless camera system can provide real time video data to surface operators enabling effective management of remote operations.
