In situ demonstration of sensor packages
M31-M46 (Lead: PLOCAN, partners: UPC, 52North, NORCE, CNR)
The demonstration will bring the developments of task 7.2 to 7.5 to end-to-end field demonstration, first at PLOCAN coastal observatory for preparation and verification of stand-alone and cabled configuration, then transferred to an IRS and PSS sites.
Subtask 7.6.1: Sensor package preparation for integration and deployment (M31-M36): Tank and shallow water testing at PLOCAN on-shore and coastal facilities will be performed for system functional testing and checking of the end-to-end chain, before engaging in costly field operations at IRS and PSS sites. JIIM sensors and platform communication will be tested for functionality and connectivity.
Subtask 7.6.2: Sensor package end-to-end demonstration (M36-M48): This task exposes the developments to the community and stakeholders (industry, academic partners, funders). Interoperability, new sensors and methods (automated sampling), and the coupling of multi-compartment measurements (physics, biogeochemistry, biology) will be demonstrated. A sensor package deployment will take place at least on one JERICO site (IRS or PSS), selected in collaboration with WP1, WP3 and WP4.
Task 7.6: D7.9: Report on demonstrations of sensor packages on JERICO infrastructure sites. Report will cover the preparation phase (pre-demo) and results from the demonstration.
