SUSTAINING OUR WATERWAYS
Providing affordable tools to measure the health of our oceans, coastal waters, estuaries, reservoirs, rivers, and lakes.
USGS - NOAA - EPA
Sound velocity profiles, bathymetry, bottom type, hazard identification, marking, and plume-finding.
FULL WATER COLUMN TRANSECTS:
More data collected in fraction of time of other available systems.
COLLECT DATA IN Hard to REACH LOCATIONS:
Keep humans out of harms way by deploying JaiaBots to collect data in hazardous or remote locations.
Storm surge from an intense coastal storm during a king tide has caused saltwater inundation across the coastal floodplains contaminating many inland water sources used to provide irrigation for agriculture and drinking water to coastal communities.
The USGS activates its local water technicians to rapidly assess the extent of the contamination. Equipped with their three JaiaBots pods they can rapidly deploy and cover large lakes and reservoirs and the smaller inland waterways without ever having to put a boat in the water. The ability to rapidly and easily deploy the JaiaBots can provide mutliple deployments that can notify the impacted communities when it is safe to extract water from affected sources.
