13 Canadian VOSClim Status 14 Canadian AVOS ships registered in program Approximately 22 more AVOS ships to be registered Canadian AVOS systems planned to be registered Note - Recruitment Strategy for Canadian AVOS ship selection based on the following: –Data sparse North –Trans-Pacific –Trans-Atlantic –% of year at sea

14 AVOS Concerns SST - Difficult installations – exploring wireless transmission Ambient Temperature & Relative Humidity – entirely due to location, ship exhaust causes sensor fouling and increased temperature Communications –INMARSAT in the north – MSC exploring replacing INMARSAT with IRIDIUM –Pressure reporting discontinued at the moment on Mackensie River Eprom upgrade –Delete country code as required by service provider –Incorporate IMMT3 format and MQCSV January 2007 Stealth Mode – latest ver. S/W – option for no transmit. When triggered system continues to collect and store observations and PMO must retrieve data on next possible visit. CCG has requested that : –critical ships be excluded from MSC AVOS ship list –Stealth mode be available on all CCG vessels –Call sign be hidden on all CCG vessels –Data be delayed 24 hours to the public Standards – Marine TWG, PMO training, certification, workload WBS Internal site – must be acceptable to the green lane
