Is YPPO only about the CONCEPT project on your front page?
No. The CONCEPT project stands representative for a collaborative project that is supported by the YPPO community. It was created by Fabian Schneider and Rami Aly and requires the access to different oceans. The data visualization was embedded on the front page since the project represents central ideas of YPPO. About CONCEPT ➚
Is CONCEPT a community project?
No. It was created by Fabian Schneider and Rami Aly and requires the access to different oceans. Therefore, the international community is vital for the CONCEPT project.
Do the CONCEPT probe sensor data represent the actual ocean parameters?
Not necessary. Due to a permanent movement and changing weather conditions, it is not possible to a floating object to precisely measuring ocean parameters. The key feature of the CONCEPT probes is a relative comparison of parameters over time.
How do the CONCEPT drones transmit data from the ocean?
The sensor data is communicated to the YPPO server via Iridium satellites that can be accessed by the central computing unit via the RockBlock Mk2 module. About Transmission ➚
