AbstractThe advances in computation, electronic and mechanic technologies have allowed the implementation of new sensors and platforms to monitor the oceanic environment. The Marine Technologies, Operational Oceanography and Sustainability Department of IMEDEA has been involved during the last seven years in the study and design of different marine technologies to develop innovative devices for marine research. Several approaches have been implemented using commercial off the shelf components (COTS), and reducing costs and complexity of the overall design to develop low cost platforms for the coastal and oceanic environment. New observing platforms such as Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV), Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), and low‐cost Drifters (based on mobile network communications) have been implemented and tested obtaining good results, allowing its transfer to the commercial environment through an IMEDEA spin off, Albatros Marine Technologies. In this work we present some of the designs and main results obtained from this technology development and describe in more detail the most recently platforms being developed: satellite‐based drifters for open shore ocean measurements, and a new AUV for coastal monitoring, designed to minimize its cost and size
