DARPA awards Xerox’s PARC another Oceans of Things contract

Posted by in category: sustainability

Ocean of Things was outlined by DARPA in 2017 and the rough idea revolved around deploying small drifters in the Southern California Bight and Gulf of Mexico to collect data on environmental and human impacts. The small devices collect sea temperature and state, surface activities and data on marine life.

PARC’s contract calls for up to 10,000 more compact drifters. In phase one of Ocean of Things PARC built 1,500 drifters.
