Submersible FlowCAM® - In-Situ Monitoring

On February 8th, 2010 technicians from Fluid Imaging Technologies and Battelle deployed a Submersible FlowCAM® from the deck of the R/V Aqua Monitor into Plymouth Bay, MA. The Submersible FlowCAM was developed in collaboration with Battelle in order to enable continuous in-situ monitoring of ocean and fresh water bodies.

The image on the left shows the Submersible FlowCAM being deployed from the Aqua Monitor, while the image to the right shows the system being controlled during data acquisition from inside of the vessel. Below that are actual images collected during the deployment.

System Features:

  • Proven FlowCAM Technology
  • Deployment to 200 Meters
  • Particle Size Range 10 - 600µm (Customization Available)
  • Remote Operation
  • Two Channel Fluorescence Triggering using 532nm Laser
  • Integration With Other Sensors
  • Deployment:
    • On a Mooring
    • Vertical Profiler
    • AUV Housing
