The Clever Buoy will be installed between the groynes at City Beach and will operate for an initial trial period up to 31st March 2017.
The deployment is aimed at providing the various State Agencies with an opportunity to assess the system’s effectiveness in local conditions, its ability to be integrated into existing operations and potential suitability for use at other sites along the Western Australian coast.
SM8 Managing Director, Craig Anderson, commented:
“We are really excited to showcase our Western Australian developed technology in our backyard, following significant exposure nationally and internationally. Western Australia is leading the globe in shark management initiatives and we are confident that the Clever Buoy will integrate with current strategies and provide an additional option for protecting beach users.”
