Two SeaSonde coastal HF radars have been acquired by REGIONE TOSCANA in the framework of the SICOMAR cross border Italy-France project to support safety at sea and marine monitoring. After a two week educational program held at the Naval Academy in Livorno by QUALITAS Remos www.qualitasremos.com staff and UNIVERSITY OF NAPLES scientists the new system is now operational and managed by LaMMA Consortium (CNR-REGIONE TOSCANA). A group of 15+ partner organization staff persons attended the meeting and discussed about the technology and future efforts on topics like:

  • Introduction to SeaSonde HF radar hardware & software
  • Procedures and experience on system operation and maintenance
  • Fine tuning of a system, QA/QC and data management
  • R&D activities and downstream products for end-users
