Abstract: The ARGO profiling float and the surface drifter have been widely used as expendable and mobile platforms for marine observation across the world. Traditionally, the Argos satellite system is used on these 2 kinds of platforms for positioning and data transfer. However, with the development of the BEIDOU system characterized by China’s independent intellectual property rights and the application of the compact communication module featured by low power consumption, it is possible for the BEIDOU system to replace the Argos system and serve as a means of data transfer and positioning for the 2 platforms. This paper briefly introduces the technological progress of the ARGO profiling float and the surface drifter, as well as the development status of China’s BEIDOU system. Especially, this paper focuses on the development and application of the C-ARGO float and the surface drifter, which both adopt the BEIDOU system and own independent intellectual property rights.
