System Integration - Space to Deep Ocean

Observing, modeling and monitoring oceans and coastal areas for a better management of the Atlantic resources, plus the development, integration, transfer technologies and use of sensors, devices and systems.


An improved understanding of the ocean-atmosphere-climate interactions can be obtained through a holistic vision on the system, by matching data of different origins and perspectives. At the same time, new technologies increasingly play a role to enable 'vertical' system integration.


Priority work tasks include the following topics:

  • Data integration from space, aerial and in situ observation systems
  • Micro and Nano Satellites
  • Underwater Robotics & Autonomous Vehicles
  • New Sensors
  • Modelling
