The PIRATA project is a joint effort among Brazil, France, and the United States to collect oceanic and meteorological observations in the tropical Atlantic. Collaborating institutions are: the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory (NOAA-PMEL), Brazilian Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE), and French Institut de Recherche pour le Developpement. In 2013, OTN began providing VR2W receivers for deployment on PIRATA moorings to capture opportunistic acoustic detections.
