Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Project

Our team has performed numerous field operational tests as part of the project, to test the sensing capabilities of the fleet, the quality of GPS signals on water, the communication infrastructure and the modeling capabilities of the system. Below are a few pictures of some of our deployments, which show our operational capabilities. Our deployments so far have focused on two specific areas of the Delta: Walnut Grove (Georgianna Slough), and the Grant line canal.
