Okeanos Explorer (EX0801): Mapping Operations Shakedown

Okeanos Explorer Shakedown cruise: 1) Ensuring all mapping systems and components are fully operational after the prerequisite multibeam testing, patch testing and system integration have been completed, and determine the connectivity and readiness of all system components and any ancillary hardware. This includes devising a checklist for assessing system readiness. 2) Evaluating the draft data pipeline in which acquired data is archived, retrieved and processed. This will require monitoring data healthiness throughout the pipeline via appropriate quality assurance procedures, creating data tracking sheets, and troubleshooting any problems to improve efficiency or gaps. 3) Assessing the automated metadata management system, Cruise Information Management System (CIMS), and field testing the Science Computer System (SCS). 4) Testing the capabilities of the multibeam system by acquiring data in various sea states and at different depths, and determining if any inherent problems exist, such as bubble sweep-down, and if so, characterize its severity and possible cause. 5) Generating mapping products based on the feedback from OER's March Mapping Workshop. This includes completing the entire data deliverables package before the ship returns to port.
