Abstract:

The research conducted under this project has been an extension of an ongoing research effort for development of the Ocean SAmpling MObile Network SAMON Controller. The role of the Ocean SAMON Controller is to support the development of a distributed, high resolution and robust Autonomous Oceanographic Sampling Network AOSN. The concept of the SAMON Controller is based on a multitude of inexpensive self-organizing autonomous vehicles released by a supply vessel in a certain region of the ocean. The research conducted has focused on formulation of quantitative methods of statistical signal processing for calibration and estimation of oceanographic sensor signals e.g., conductivity, depth, and temperature. Two graduate students were partially supported by this AASERT grant.
