Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Systems for Marine and Coastal Monitoring

Deliverables

ESRs' individual projects

Doctoral thesis of the ESRs. There are in addition expected to be publications, and/or technical reports and and patent applications along the way towards completion of the doctoral thesis.

Network level training

The extensive list with multiple network-level traning events is covered by this deliverable. It is further detailed in Annex I Part B, and constitutes internal Research reviews, workshops, summer schools, and organization of conferences or sessions at conferences. Most of the events are public, but some are are exlusively for the Project (e.g. internal research reviews).

2nd summer school material

Lectures from Summer Schools will be video-recorded, and together with all relevant course material, will be made available on the internet. Wherever possible, the training modules will be open to junior researchers outside the project as a means of disseminating best practices in training for researchers.

1st summer school material

Lectures from Summer Schools will be video-recorded, and together with all relevant course material, will be made available on the internet. Wherever possible, the training modules will be open to junior researchers outside the project as a means of disseminating best practices in training for researchers.

Web-site

A MarineUAS web-site will be updated on a monthly basis. It will have 1. A public section with research results, scientific publications, recruitment and announcements of open network activities, 2. An end-user section with course materials, field experiment videos, animations, and demonstrations, 3. An outreach section with news, interviews, blogs, popular science articles, and contact points.

Final technical report
