Research Axis 5 - Complex systems for observation, measures and intervention

Axe_5

Research Axis 5 of the GIS Europôle Mer aims at developing and implementing smart underwater observatories to observe, measure and interact with the environment as required by the Research Axis 2 to 4 (2: Global change – ocean – marine ecosystems interactions ; 3: Observation and integrated management of the coastal zone ; 4: Deep sea exploration and understanding). Indeed Research Axis 2 to 4 deal with marine sciences and draw upon engineering sciences and technologies by expressing specific needs for observations such as long term and high frequency multi parameters measurements, over long distance with a low special sampling, including accessibility to a large scientific community

Institutions involved : Ifremer, the French Hydrographic and Oceanographic Naval Service (SHOM), Telecom Bretagne, Research and Development Institute (IRD), Ecole Nationale des Sciences de l’Ingénieur Et des Techniques de l’Armement (ENSTA Bretagne), Ecole Navale, Ecole Nationale Ingénieurs de Brest (ENIB), Institut Supérieur de l'Electronique et du Numérique (ISEN).

Coordinators : Arnaud Coatanhay (ENSTA Bretagne) and JF Rolin (IFREMER)

Projects

From a potential of 100 permanent researchers and 40 main contributors, Research Priority 5 develops three projects in interface with Research Priorities 2, 3 and 4:

  • 1 : Deep Sea Observatories ;
  • 2 : Gliders and profilers ;
  • 3 : Remote measurement systems for marine environments.

the scientific community of Research priority 5 held a scientific workshop on 8th July 2011 to overview project progress and results. Presentations of this workshop can be downloaded in the workshop section.
