Brief Description of Organisation:

IEEE will contribute to JERICO 3 best practices and virtual access. The IEEE France Section is an IEEE non-profit corporation registered in France in 1967. It has more than 3000 members with many links to both industry and universities. It has experts and experience in oceanic engineering, sensors, systems best practices and standards. Globally, IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology with more than 400,000 members in over 162 countries; The IEEE is a major international standards organization with over 900 active IEEE standards, IEEE has played an active role in GEO and GEOSS through management and contributions to architecture and interoperability development. In projects such as H2020 AtlantOS and ODIP, IEEE has led an international team (the Ocean Best Practice Working Group) for best practices system and applications development. IEEE has had a important role in information brokers, which facilitate virtual access. IEEE also leads the GEO Standards and Interoperability Forum (SIF) that works with the Earth observation community in addressing standards and interoperability issues. IEEE has a management role in ocean research and applications as well as addressing societal issues such as marine debris.

JERICO-S3: Main tasks attributed under Work Packages:

Best Practices under WP 5; Virtual Access under WP 7 and 8; sustainability under WP9

Relevant Projects- previous and existing:

1. H2020 “Optimizing and Enhancing the Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System (AtlantOS)”, Coordinator: GEOMAR, Grant agreement No 633211, (2015-2019)
2. H2020 “Ocean Data Interoperability Platform (ODIP)”, Coordinator: NERC, Grant agreement No: 654310(2015-2018)
3. FP7 NeXOS (2013-2017) – Coordinator: PLOCAN Ref. GA- 614102: To develop new cost-effective, innovative and compact integrated multifunctional sensor systems (ocean optics, ocean passive acoustics, and sensors for an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF)). These sensors can be deployed from mobile and fixed ocean observing platforms, as well as to develop downstream services for GOOS, GES of MFSD and the CFP packages for future ocean observing stations.
4. FP7 COOPEUS, A Project for Building a Framework for a Sustainable Transatlantic Cooperation in the Field of Environmental Research Infrastructures. Coordinator University of Bremen, Germany, (2012 –2014).
5. Marine Collaborative Ground Segment. This is a GMES/Copernicus
collaborative ground station project in the maritime domain. It contributes to a list of
networks and activities that connect in-situ, oceanographic models and satellite radar data.
