New cost-effective, innovative and compact integrated multifunctional sensor systems


CMR is partner in the NEXOS (Next generation, Cost-effective, Compact, Multifunctional Web Enabled Ocean Sensor Systems Empowering Marine, Maritime and Fisheries Managment) project. 

The general objective of NeXOS is to develop new cost-effective, innovative and compact integrated multifunctional sensor systems (ocean optics, ocean passive acoustics, EAF sensor system), which can be deployed from mobile and fixed ocean observing platforms, as well as to develop downstream services for GOOS, GES and the CFP. CMR will bring to NeXOS its expertise in the development and producer of automated measurement systems for environmental purposes including the Sailbuoy, an autonomous surface vessel for ocean research and measurement. CMR has also experience in designing sensor systems from data acquisition of the individual sensor to data dissemination and aggregation.

CMR will contribute to this project by aiding development of software/electronics of sensor systems and by testing/validating sensors by use of an autonomous sensor platform.

NeXOS is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission 7th Framework Programme, under the call OCEAN-2013.2 - The Ocean of Tomorrow 2013 - Innovative multifunctional sensors for in-situ monitoring of marine environment and related maritime activities. It is composed of 21 partners including public entities, small and , companies and scientific organizations from 6 European countries. For more information, see
