Canadian VOSClim Status
  • 14 Canadian AVOS ships registered in program
  • Approximately 22 more AVOS ships to be registered 2006
  • 75 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
avos concerns
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
