Monterey Accelerated Research System (MARS)
Project Manager: Keith Raybould
The MARS cable is now laid, and the integration of the power system is being completed with model medium voltage (MV) power converters. The production-run MV converters will not be available until after the node is deployed in the ocean. This project is reserving a small amount of resources (3 days of Research Vessel Point Lobos time and some manpower) in the event that the model MV converters fail and need to be replaced with the production-quality versions prior to recovering the node for some other maintenance reason in the future.
