The ARROW (Autonomous Real-time Reporting Of Waves) system was conceived based on the need to address specific concerns with existing buoy-based technologies now used for tsunami detection.

This new variant of our standard GP-TRBM has a removable top plate to allow both the ADCP and external battery housing with all interconnecting cables to be lifted to the surface as a complete assembly.

Servicing is made easy for divers with quick release pins that are easy to reach.

TRBM Upgrade Kits

With over a decade of experience manufacturing trawl resistant bottom mounts, Mooring Systems has made many improvements over the years.

Recent changes include the following kits available for upgrading your TRBM:

1. Cover Mounting Bracket Kit - This set of 4 stainless angle brackets secure to the base of the TRBM.

The cover can then be lowered on to the angle brackets for ease in securing the remaining bolts.

2. Center Lifting Post - By using a center lifting post and locating all ballast below the center lift point, the deployment and recovery is very stable, eliminating the need for special lifting bridles.
