IOOS advances technology through the transition of ocean, coastal, and marine sensors and platforms to operations.
Mission: The IOOS Ocean Technology Transition program sponsors the transition of emerging marine observing technologies, for which there is an existing operational requirement and a demonstrated commitment to integration and use by the ocean observing community, to operational mode.
Vision: Transitioning marine observing technology to operations will result in improved ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes observing capabilities that are critical for helping us understand our ocean, coastal, and marine environments and improve environmental intelligence for decision making.
