Getting the data to the surface
Lars Hansen, President - North America Operation
The presentation will give a background on how to get data from underwater to the surface from either a stationary, free swimming or towed sensor platform.
Applications and the choice of media for the data transfer infrastructure including copper, fiber optics, free-space optics, and electro-magnetics will be covered.
There will be an open discussion to learn more about the needs and challenges and a look into the multiplexing and transfer of large data sets in real time.
The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make
technical expertise and resources more widely available within the
UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical
staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for
interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry
interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging
challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies;
and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction,
including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.
The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a monthly midday meeting with free pizza and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry. Our monthly newsletter highlights events, people, places, and items.

Members of the Technical Forum are encouraged to use the mailing list techical @siomail.ucsd.edu to get answers from the community on questions about instrumentation, technical setups, electronics, mechanicals, moorings, computers, etc.
