Identify enabling technologies and start with geolocation. IEEE will help disseminate current work in geolocation to new stakeholders and to set a framework/precedence for sharing information about other enabling technologies (eventually: autonomy).
Enable the SMART cable and scientific community to support NOAA and IOC’s emphasis on tsunami detection and storm surge for the UN Decade as it helps make ocean observations relevant to all stakeholders.
Creating an Integrated Arctic System with understanding the difficulties and sharing importance around polar acoustics and working with other ocean observing systems to share lessons learned and best practices.
Integrate marine energy with ocean observing devices and inform community of this need.
Catalog ocean observation needs (tied to EOVs), status of technologies currently in use, and technologies needed to address observation gaps (ie help sponsors know what to fund, industry know what to create).
Engage to develop integrated and multidisciplinary observing system (ie OASIS) for co-located obs, joint data management, and interpretation.
Advance an Integrated Biology and Ecosystem Observing System with GOOS BioEco, MBON, and the broader biological observing community.
Converge technology development processes across topics (ie DOOS-omics).
