Project Manager/Lead Scientist: Dave Caress
(mooring data users committee)
project provides for the institutional support of core
navigation data from MBARI ships and ROVs. This is a continuing project
elements of this project are:
Maintenance and minor
development of software used for the processing and archiving of ROV
and ship navigation.
Data archiving and
dissemination through the expedition database.
Data validation through
science data "champion".
for 2003 we propose a significant development and testing effort for ROV
Shipboard testing of
real-time ROV navigation and logging of raw (unprocessed) navigation
Development of new
algorithms for processing USBL + DVL ROV navigation.
Extension of the Expedition
database to support multiple versions of processed ROV navigation.
