Mediterráneo Señales Marítimas, aware of the increasing concern on safety and security of human lives, has developed a complete Tsunami Early Detection and Warning System.

This system of advanced technology detects the event, processes and sends the information to a Control Centre with WEB platform.

A pressure sensor deployed in a water depth of up to 7,000 meters detects height variations of the water surface.

This buoy has been especially designed to be deployed in deep waters and hold the complex control and communication systems. The float is made from shock-resistant elastomer.

This buoy complies with all IALA Recommendations and safety Standards.
