ASRC RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS, LLC
This project will develop a set of instrument procurement specifications derived from the NASA Ocean Color Protocol Documents and from Current literature. Criteria for deployment and data processing will also be developed. Bids will be solicited for multiple copies of the instrument suite. These instruments will then be made available for sanctioned estuary studies. Data Collected from these instrument suites can then be accessible through the NASA/SSC COAST software for display and analysis. Cost for a minimall comprehensive, small boat deployable instrument suite will be on the order of $50K per copy. The initial design process will determine the optimum configurations and cost with emphasis placed on the greatest number of deployments possible This SOW is for the set up of the lab and verification and validation testing of the optical instrument suites.
