The ILL+ solar powered GPS buoy is fully autonomous; it uses a small aray of solar panels to collect energy and transmit consistent and accurate GPS positions. Fishing gear and lines can always be located and tracked with no limitation on drift distance. Buoy GPS positions are received onboard the vessel's computer using Satlink's software program via email or an optional direct satellite connection antenna (IDP Communicator). The positions can also be copied to the owner’s office and/or sister ships. There is no need to purchase or replace batteries as the life of the solar powered energy system is nearly unlimited.
Robust and lightweight, the ILL+ buoy is easy to use and fully compatible with Satlink’s Ocean Services data maps.

Buoy tracks can be overlaid with Satlink’s Ocean Services data maps, such as; Sea Surface Temperature, Currents and Plankton

Satlink’s oceanography information helps to predict future buoy drift direction helping the captain make informed decisions, saving fuel and operating time.

Using Satlink’s onboard buoy software, the Captain can press a single button to remotely turn on a bright light, allowing the vessel to locate the buoy visually when approaching in the dark.
