Sensor networks for environmental data acquisition will play an important role in the development of future large data acquisition systems, particularly in oceanographic observation and operational oceanography. This paper will show the applicability of policy based network management (PBNM) on marine sensor networks (MSN) and networked ocean observatories(More)
Research vessels are complex data acquisition systems, consisting of a large number of instruments and sensors producing complex observations for many different disciplines. The data and general metadata produced, is commonly disseminated using well established standards by the data centers; however, the onboard instruments and systems are not always well(More)
This paper describes the design and the development of a new real time data acquisition system which focuses on oceanographic research. The system has been implemented in several Spanish oceanographic platforms (vessels and land-sites) using very reliable MESH network that can still operate when one node breaks down or a connection goes bad.

—A meteorological data distribution system (MDDS) is presented. The system was implemented in the Spanish Juan Carlos I Antarctic station during the 2002–2003 campaign. Meteorological data are distributed to any point of the base using the LAN, which allows distributing data up to a 3.3-km radius from the acquisition point. The acquisition control(More)
A new Data Acquisition and Operation System for Oceanographic ships and Instrumentation Networks has been developed by the Marine Technology Unit of the Spanish Research Vessels for their networked remote acquisition platforms. The new system built over LABVIR project background follows a Service Oriented Architecture to allow expandable access to acquired(More)
Sensor networks for environmental data acquisition will play an important role in the development of future large data acquisition systems, particularly in oceanographic observation and operational oceanography. Within these scenarios, many challenges will be overcome by using emergent networking technologies which have been successfully tested in other(More)
