Key Projects

Assignment of kinetic energy to the regional economic development by innovation

Miros Radar project

Project Overview

The core technology of the Miros radar project has two main parts. One is the cloud system; the other is the detection device. The combination of the two can monitor the weather, waves and other meteorological information during the construction and operation of marine projects in real time, which can greatly reduce the operation and maintenance cost of marine projects. Through the transfer and cooperation of the core technology of the project, it will promote the localization of cloud system technology and sensor project research and development, production and sales, thereby forming industrialization, innovating international cooperation models, and achieving economic and social benefits.

Product description

Wave radar

This product is a high-performance, remote dry sensor for measuring directional spectrum and surface current. It is currently the only sensor in the world that uses the dual-footprint pulse Doppler method for wave measurement and the microwave dual-frequency method for surface current measurement.

The system has a high degree of accuracy and reliability, can provide the same data quality as high-performance buoys, and has a wider range of practical value.

Wavex virtual sensor

The virtual sensor is designed to use standard marine X-band radar data to measure waves and currents and can be operated at all speeds and fixed positions. In addition, the water navigation speed of the sensor can accurately provide the ship's surface transverse wave (STW) without using any underwater equipment to measure it. It can also provide accurate and reliable wave parameters, including 2D spectrum, surface current magnitude and direction, and speed calculated through water.

The parameters output by the equipment have important values: speed can be optimized to save fuel; hull and propeller performance can be strengthened; claims costs and risks caused by weather effects can be reduced, and passenger comfort can be improved.

Water speed measurement technology

The water speed measurement technology is a breakthrough in fuel optimization in the shipping industry. It can provide reliable and real-time data with higher accuracy without the need for traditional equipment to be immersed in the water.

Accurately measuring the speed of a ship in motion over the water can serve a variety of application scenarios, including ship fuel optimization, hull performance improvement, and docking and navigation in restricted areas.

This technology can provide ship owners and fleet managers with more practical data to help them optimize operations, reduce fuel-related costs and increase profits.

Sea state and meteorological measurement technology

This technology can perform accurate and real-time local sea and weather measurement, and the high-level solutions it provides are generally applicable to tide users who need tide, sea state, and weather data;

Cloud-based real-time visualization for data storage and data stream processing users; offshore wind energy industry that requires real-time sea and weather data; port users who need real-time water level, sea state and weather data for the management of ship in and out.


The rangefinder is suitable for terminal independent sensors for air gap, tide, water level, draft and wave measurement.

The rangefinder is a radar sensor that can measure with millimeter accuracy (+/- 1mm) under any weather conditions.

The principle is: the device sends out a microwave frequency modulation (FM) chirp signal, and then receives the echo from the water surface. The signal propagation delay from the antenna to the water surface will generate a beat signal in the receiver.

The rangefinder can perform an average of up to 50 measurements per second, and the distance from the ground is 1 to 100 meters, which has a great competitive advantage.

Wave monitor

Miros WaveFinder is a terminal independent sensor for air gap, tide, water level, draft and wave measurement. It can measure with millimeter accuracy (+/- 1mm) in all weather conditions.

The sensor can be installed on floating equipment and is a standard product for motion compensation. It is also the only system in the world that can provide high-precision wave parameters to meet the offshore standards of DNV GL.

Oil leakage monitoring system

The system can be used alone or as part of a sensor network, suitable for offshore installations, ships and shore base stations.

The monitoring data can provide a high-value reference basis for the third-party response management system, and its oil spill detection system can provide continuous monitoring. Restorative operations can be continued under conditions of poor visibility or unavailable aviation data support.

Cooperation model

The two parties of the project plan to further cooperate in the form of product agency or establishment of a joint venture. For more product introduction and project cooperation, please contact TORC.
