Numurus’ Smart IoT solutions enable ocean observations on a scale never achieved before. Leveraging a combination of Edge and Cloud computing, Numurus' products convert data to information faster and enable proactive decision making.

Numurus has won a $2.3M contract from DARPA’s Strategic Technology Office to integrate its Smart IoT Ecosystem into thousands of satellites connected remote monitoring devices. While several programs over the past decade have measured the ocean environment on a large scale (>10 km), the Ocean of Things (OoT) program will provide measurements that are orders of magnitude finer (<10m). Potential applications include more accurate fish population estimation, oil spill monitoring, improved weather forecasting, and better tsunami prediction models. To achieve the OoT program goals, DARPA will leverage Numurus’ SB™ (Smart Brain) series of Edge hardware platforms and Numurus’ NEPI™ Edge IoT management services. These tools together produce a full-spectrum sensor-to-cloud solution capable of detecting minor changes in the environment, reducing megabytes of sensor data into kilobytes of information at the collection source, and transmitting that information through Iridium satellites to a secure firewalled cloud infrastructure. Through NEPI’s fleet level monitoring and software management solutions, DARPA can access data products, tweak mission configurations, and apply software updates to deployed smart devices. Outside of the marine environment, the technology advances developed under this program are immediately applicable to many challenging problems such as measuring ice sheet thickness and permafrost across remote areas of the world or search and rescue operations in mountainous and dense forested environments.
“The Ocean of Things program is a great opportunity to advance Numurus’ vision of providing smart information ecosystems for the increasing number of robotic inspection solutions and smart device fleets.”, said Jason Seawall, CEO of Numurus. “Not only is this program advancing our Edge hardware and Cloud management capabilities, it is significantly increasing the content of our Edge software marketplace with a library of new ROS processing modules.”
