The Remote Controlled and Autonomous Measurement Platforms Flagship (ReCAMP) is an interdisciplinary project aiming to coordinate and increase the use of remotely controlled and autonomous measurement platforms, like USVs/ROVs/AUVs/UAVs and underwater gliders, and collectively solve the challenges associated with deploying these platforms in a harsh arctic environment.
The main purpose of the Flagship is to exchange knowledge and coordinate activities both within each discipline and across the different platforms and groups, as well as between the end users of the data up the chain to the platform operation, system development and design scientists. By providing a meeting place for exchange of experience and technologies the Flagship contributes to improve the efficiency and reliability of the platforms and the consistency of the datasets collected between platforms and research groups.
The Flagship in particular addresses the following unique issues and challenges in the Arctic:

The ReCAMP Flagship project includes the financial support of 7 Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs). STSMs correspond to field activities or research visits related to the use of Remote Controlled and Autonomous Measurement Platforms in Svalbard and the adjacent Arctic Ocean. They have to be related to an objective of multi-institutions partnership and exchange of personnel to share operational experience and technology.
ReCAMP Flagship will cover travel and subsistence for the involved scientists to participate in fieldwork of partner institutions or to visit partners. The budget is limited to 2 persons on each project and 25.000 NOK per person. The STSM applicant does not need to be from a ReCAMP Flagship partner institution but from an institution doing scientific work on Svalbard.
Applications for ReCAMP STSM have to be sent to the project coordinator (recamp(at)asuf.no). Please respect the following instructions:
The deadline to submit an application is on June, 15th.
The applications will be evaluated by the ReCAMP Flagship core group consisting of one representative from each of the project partners. The decision of funding will be taken and communicated before the 1st of July.
The Remote Controlled and Autonomous Measurement Platforms (ReCAMP) Flagship Workshop has been held the 5-6th of April 2016 in Tromsø, Norway.
