Next generation, Cost-effective, Compact, Multifunctional Web Enabled Ocean Sensor Systems Empowering Marine, Maritime and Fisheries Management

Time frame: 10.2013 to 09.2017


Description: The Project aims to improve the temporal and spatial coverage, resolution and quality of marine observations through the development of cost-efficient innovative and interoperable in-situ senosrs deployable from multiple platforms, and Web Services for key domains and applications. This is acheived through the development of new, los-cost, compact and integrated sensors with multiple functionalities including the measurement of key parameters useful to a number of objectives, ranging from more precise monitoring and modelling of the marine environment to an improved assessment of fisheries. NeXOS will

  • deliver cost-efficient multifunctional sensors
  • launch a more efficient monitoring strategy
  • provide data in a standard format
  • implement a common data & sensor interface
  • reduce the need for human-operated quality control
  • calibrate and validate all new sensors and increase its reliability (e.g. antifouling management system).

52°North supports the project's development of a Modular and Reconfigurable Sensor System Interface, as well as Marine Sensor Web Architecture & Components.

Commissioned/Funded by: European Commission - FP7-OCEAN-2013 (Grant Agreement 614102)
