NeMO Net is a breakthrough in ocean engineering utilizing an acoustic modem to relay data from three temperature probes and a camera to a moored buoy, which in turn sends the data to NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory via a GOES satellite. The prototype system, operational for one month in 1999 was succeeded in July 2000 by a more advanced system. The new system uses an ORBCOMM satellite system to SEND AND RECEIVE COMMANDS AND DATA FROM SHORE TO THE SEAFLOOR!
