The object of this work is a simple drifter conceived for a usage limited to about 2 or 3 days, in confined or nearshore environments. The drifter has a GPS receiver, a CPU and a subsystem capable of collecting environmental data and store them onboard. If possible, the system may send a subset of the collected data to an on-ground station for direct analysis and storage, even through peer-to-peer networking Further versions may eventually be capable of reduced mobility to approximate a given predetermined rendezvous location.
