The project is some 8 months behind schedule due to administrative delays in the funds becoming available 1 invoices were submitted by UKZN in the wrong currency 2 there were delays at UKZN in setting up the cost centre system and transfer of funds. The funding finally became available to the PI in April 2015. During May June 2015 the PI visited CSU in the USA to meet with and discuss plans with the USA collaborators. This led to a planned visit by Drs Venayagamoorthy and St Laurent to South Africa in August 2015 where planning was discussed in detail and a field trip was arranged to the launch site near Sordwana Bay. A decision was made to schedule an initial glider deployment for December 2015 and operational arrangements for this are currently underway.
