REMOTE MEASUREMENTS & RESEARCH CO. (RMR CO.)

RMR Co. is a small company that specializes in instrumentation for remote environments, particularly maritime applications. We have offices on Long Island, New York and in Seattle WA. We provide special instrument design as required and will develop all preipheral hardware for extensive network installations. Data collection, post processing, and data analysis are a routine part of our activities.

PRODUCTS

ROSR (Remote Ocean Surface Radiometer) Under development. Improved version of ISAR. SSST (uncertainty 0.1C) at 30 sec, GPS, tilt, and Iridium SBD. Mean time between service = 6 mo. More... ISAR (Infrared Sea Surface Temperature Autonomous Radiometer) combines a scanning infrared thermometer, GPS, and tilt sensor to provide autonomous real-time ocean skin temperature. Measurements are transmitted in real time via Iridium SBD. More... RAD (Radiometer Analog-to-Digital) is a smart interface from solar and IR radiometers to a shipboard computing system. RS232, RS422, Ethernet. NMEA style packets with calibrated irradiance averages, W/m^2. Deployed on research vessels, offshore platforms, and other maritime locations. More... FRSR (Fast-Rotating Shadowband Radiometer) Using the principal of a rotating shadow band radiometer the Fast-Rotating Shadowband Radiometer (FRSR) can provide estimates of optical depth from a moving platform (ship) with an autonomous instrument. More...

SAMOS (Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System) quality measurement systems. The SAMOS mission is to improve the quality of meteorological and near-surface oceanographic observations collected in-situ on research vessels and volunteer observing ships. More PRP2 (Portable Radiation Package, Model 2) combines one or more RADs and FRSR into a single integrated data acquisition package (DAQ). Includes FRSR, RAD, GPS, Tilt and, optionally, other sensors. More... PRP (Portable Radiation Package, Model 1) is the original smart interface from solar and IR radiometers to a shipboard computing system. RS232, RS422, Ethernet. NMEA style packets with calibrated irradiance averages, W/m^2. Deployed on research vessels, offshore platforms, and other maritime locations. More... DAQ (Data Acquisition System) The RMR Co. data acquisition system is a network-serial-server-based modular system which uses off the shelf components, is customizable, and can be expanded for almost any application. Ethernet control of power and module operating modes. Unix/Linux-based. More...
