China’s State Oceanic Administration (SOA) orders directional wave monitoring buoys from AXYS Technologies, Inc. (AXYS)

April 14, 2009

Following an international tender process, AXYS has been awarded a contract by the State Oceanic Administration’s (SOA) First Institute in Qingdao for the supply of two TRIAXYS™ directional wave monitoring buoys.

The solar-powered TRIAXYS™ buoys gather directional wave data, which is processed and logged on board before being radioed to SOA personnel ashore once per hour.

SOA’s decision follows publication of the TRIAXYS™ directional wave sensor specification in the Chinese Department of Transport’s Technical Directive JTJ/T 277-2006, which validated wave sampling at 4 Hz.

The purchase was facilitated by AXYS’ representative in China, DNT Gore (Qingdao) Ltd. Terms of the contract are confidential.

DNT-Gore (Qingdao) Ltd. specialises in the provision of oceanographic monitoring solutions to government and private sector clients throughout China. For further information please email
