Floating Observation Platform
In 2015 Biri Initiative launched a floating observation platform made from marine ply and locally available bamboo. The platform is actually multi-purpose, doubling as a staging point for deploying Biri Buds.

In the centre of the platform is a trapdoor. When the platform is being used to deploy Biri Buds, the trapdoor is opened. A removable A frame is then used to lower Biri Buds to the sea bed.

The platform is fully capable of carrying half a dozen 150-kg Biri Buds plus diving gear, or twice that number of divers.

A bonus for scuba divers is that the platform sits extremely low in the water, making it very easy to exit the water after a dive.
