Abstract : A developmental test was conducted to determine the operational effectiveness and suitability of the SMOOS sensors in an operational environment in preparation for a MILESTONE III decision. The five SMOOS sensors: Temperature/Dewpoint, Cloud Height Indicator, Visibility/Precipitation, Atmospheric Pressure and Sea Water Temperature were all tested. Each of these sensors is designed to measure and report certain environmental parameters(s) to describe the current state of the air/ocean environment. There are no hardware or software differences between the SMOOS sensors tested and those proposed for production.
