Preliminary Design, Project Plan and Costing for Copernicus Ocean Colour Vicarious Calibration Infrastructure

The objective of the study was to provide a preliminary design, project planning and costing for the Copernicus OC-SVC Infrastructure project

The OC-SVC Infrastructure has to satisfy the Copernicus long-term perspective and current and evolving user needs for products and services. Funded by the European Commissions, the study was a second step of EUMETSAT’s Copernicus OC-SVC activities. The 'Requirements for Copernicus Ocean Colour Vicarious Calibration Infrastructure' developed by the Step-1 activities were used as a baseline for this preliminary design study, Step 2, and were fully applicable for the preliminary design and planning.

Overview

This preliminary design study specified a conceptual architecture of the Copernicus OC-SVC Infrastructure project. The study includes the design of:

  • Infrastructure location, the site’s environmental characterisation and logistics.
  • Optical system and calibration.
  • Deployment structure.
  • Data processing, data products and data services — ground segment.
  • Infrastructure operations.
  • Total uncertainty budget.

The project planning defined the Copernicus OC-SVC development tasks, schedules, deliverables and review processes for the infrastructure’s field and ground segments for the remaining three steps of the project:

  • Technical definition, specifications and engineering design.
  • Development, testing, and demonstration in the field.
  • Operations.

The costing provided the preliminary costing for the Copernicus OC-SVC Infrastructure project. The costs are itemised for field and ground segments and cover all the tasks within:

  • Technical definition, specifications and engineering design.
  • Development, testing, and demonstration in the field.
  • Operations.

The work was realised through two parallel studies by:

  • Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche (F), Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (GR), ACRI-ST (F), National Physical Laboratory (GB), Univeristy of Tartu (EST), CIMEL Electronique (F) (Figure 1)
  • Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (I), AEQUORA (P), ENEA (I) and SOLVO (F) (Figure 2)
