The definition of a sensor monitoring strategy is based on the location for water monitoring, sensor performances, data storage and transmission. For any new sensor, available instruments currently used in oceanographic studies are identified to perform comparisons. Suitable transmission technology is selected according to the test conditions: open sea, coastal areas, remote locations, etc. Sensitivity and stress tests are designed to establish confidence limits under different environmental situations, so that the results obtained in planned testing exercises are enabled to certify the performance of the new instruments. In this paper, we will address three key phases to test and certify the performance of new sensors: (1) RD basis for cost-effective sensor development, (2) sensor development, sensor web platform and integration, and (3) field testing.
