The ocean is too large to observe with conventional means. SOI recognizes that in order to make meaningful advances there must be more agile, resilient, and robust platforms. Robots and AI can greatly improve coverage and cost-efficiency for select ocean observations by reducing risk, and facilitating high resolution spatially distributed surveys of dynamic marine processes, as illustrated by the projects discussed in this section.

During the past Thursday, 23rd of May, the LSTS hosted the second FIRE-RS field demonstration. This demonstration was aimed at validating the UAV segment of the FIRE-RS fire monitoring tool as well as the interaction between the UAV systems, the LSTS's Neptus command & control software and the fire mapping & propagation algorithms from LAAS. The demonstration was attended by a series of possible stakeholders from different institutions: Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente; Bombeiros Sapadores CM V.N. Gaia; Bombeiros Voluntários Leixões; Curso de Engenharia de Protecção Civil; Comando Distrital de Operações de Socorros do Porto and CCDR-N. This live demo was the culmination of a series of field tests carried out during the entire week at the LIPA airstrip.
