The new RV Mya II, which has only recently been delivered to the German Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), has been equipped by Werum Software & Systems AG with their DSHIP data and information management system.
The data management system will acquire the measurement data collected during the research cruises of RV Mya II. It will also archive and centrally provide the measurement data on shore at the AWI. Being stationed on the German island of Sylt, RV Mya II will go on one-day research cruises on the Wadden Sea and on the North Sea up to Helgoland.
RV Mya II is 21 meters long and, thus, the smallest research vessel Werum's DSHIP data management system is used on. The vessel is equipped with a variety of measuring instruments and sensors as they are also installed on larger AWI research vessels. Now, all data can be acquired and administered with systems of the same type. Integration into the already existing infrastructure is ensured so that the scientists can archive and evaluate the data as they need it. In addition to the good experience of working with Werum in the past, this was another important reason for the AWI to decide for DSHIP again.
