Deeptech company Umitron has released the Pulse mobile app that gives Android users access to ocean environmental data.
Launched for aquaculture farmers in late July, the app provides a high-resolution ocean map of critical environmental parameters such as water temperature, chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen, salinity, and wave height. Users all over the world are relying on the service to make more informed farm management decisions.
Umitron is a Singapore and Japan based company that aims to solve worldwide food and environmental problems by empowering aquaculture through technology.
Access to ocean data has historically not been available in real-time, at high resolutions, or in an easy to use format.
Pulse lets farmers easily check ocean water quality data just like checking the daily weather forecast.
In aquaculture, it is just as important to know what is happening below the ocean’s surface as it is to know what is happening above it. All of this is possible thanks to new developments in satellite remote sensing technology and Umitron provide more data to farmers.
The Android app has the same features as the desktop version. An iOS version will be launched soon. Download Pulse for free from http://www.pulse.umitron.com free by from Google Play app store.
