NOAA launches Lithiumstart's Next Generation SCOOP Weather Buoy Batteries in Field Trials
Lithiumstart is currently developing advanced lithium ion batteries for NOAA's next generation SCOOP weather buoy platform. The buoys represent a generational leap forward in both capability and cost savings. A key driver is Lithiumstart's compact Energy Storage System, which includes solar MPPT charging capability integrated into a lightweight robust marine enclosure. More information on the NOAA SCOOP program is available here: http://www.fondriest.com/news/national-data-buoy-cente-slimming-hulking-weather-buoys-scoop.htm. Field trials are under way, and buoys are actively deployed and transmitting data back via an XML feed over a satellite link.
