Environmental monitoring solutions that deliver quality data for accurate decision-making and peace of mind.
AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) is an ISO 9001-2008 registered Canadian company with over 35 years experience in the design, manufacture and installation of remote environmental monitoring systems worldwide. AXYS applies its extensive knowledge and experience to marine, freshwater, land-based monitoring stations, and offshore wind resource assessment systems that measure aquatic, oceanic and atmospheric parameters. Offered in addition are technical field services to train and support customers in the operation and maintenance of all products. AXYS systems and turnkey solutions utilize proven cost-effective technology related to a wide range of applications.
Marine products include moored buoys for weather, wave, and sea state forecasting, as well as buoys for specialized applications such as underwater acoustics, red tide, and oil spill detection. A typical buoy measures wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, air temperature, relative humidity, solar radiation, water temperature, currents, and directional waves.
Hydrological applications include freshwater products for flood forecasting information systems, hydroelectric networks, irrigation management, environmental assessments, continuous water quality monitoring, and automated greenhouse gas monitoring.
The WindSentinel™ is the world's only wind resource assessment buoy that uses a simultaneously pulsing laser wind sensor to accurately measure wind speed, wind direction, and turbulence offshore at turbine hub-height and across the blade span.
The WxSentinel Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS) is a land-based monitoring station for the collection, processing and distribution of aviation weather data.
The latest data collection platform developed by AXYS is the WatchMan500 Network Solution. The WatchMan500 node was designed as the new generation of payload for the AXYS marine buoy and terrestrial weather information systems to provide desktop to sensor monitoring and control, including dynamic onboard control and data storage capabilities. This platform is the ideal solution for any application requiring data monitoring, collection, control, processing, or remote system management. It can interface with custom or commercial off the shelf sensors, equipment, software, and telemetry.
The AXYS Service Team has extensive experience in the training, deployment and maintenance for operational buoy programs. AXYS technicians are capable of board level diagnostics/repair in the field, and individual electronic component level diagnostics/repair in the lab. They handle client training that covers all aspects of buoy and systems assembly, function, installation, preventative and corrective maintenance, repair, testing, calibration, transmission protocols, data storage, data analysis, data presentation, and real-time data distribution.
AXYS can provide full turnkey installation programs for any of our products, anywhere in the world. Working with our clients and our regional agents, we will co-ordinate the installation or service logistics required to ensure the installation or repair of AXYS systems.
AXYS also has a full service oceanographic department for biological, meteorological, and physical oceanography. This is supported by our full range of oceanographic lease equipment. Typical oceanographic and environmental consulting studies include wave climate studies, coastal erosion, marine outfall studies, and port studies.
