MARS Wet-Node Simulator

Project Manager: Craig Dawe

To maximize the probability that an instrument or suite of instruments will work as expected when first deployed on the Monterey Accelerated Research System (MARS), and subsequently on NEPTUNE, MBARI will be developing a device for the test tank that simulates the MARS wet node and is connected to the MARS network. This wet-node simulator will allow extensive validation and verification in a wet environment in a time-saving and cost-effective manner.
