Summary: 
A French company, producing oysters on tables in lagoons, is looking for a measurement sensor, which records at least the oxygen level in water and temperatures and salinity and has an interface to collect data on demand. The company has several software solutions and a historical database to manage production. A technical cooperation programme is planned in which the French company could integrate the new sensor into the existing infrastructure.
Description: 
The French company is producing Oysters with hundreds of tables where suspended culture is made on ropes in the lagoon or in the open sea. Each table needs several sensors in different places. Each sensor must collect measurements of oxygene level, temperature, salinity and other physico-chemical parameters (Turbidity;Chlorophyll) to provide data to an AI software management system which calculates future production. Phytoplankton measurement could be interesting. The sensors must be solid enough to stay in salted water for a long time. Power is available on tables. Internet connection is not yet available but planned. The company is looking mainly for a manufacturer who has a tested sensor. The project will be to integrate the new sensor in the existing software solutions. If a manufacturer is currently achieving the creation of a new sensor, not yet tested, the company is able to partner in designing the software interfaces. The company has several locations around the Mediterranean Sea but the project will take place at "Etang de Thau" near the city of Sète.
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought: 
- Type of partner sought : sensor manufacturer - Specific area of activity of the partner : sensors in open sea - Task to be performed by the partner sought : integrate the sensor system in the existing management system (The company has several software solutions and an historical database to manage the production)
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought: 
The company is looking for a technical cooperation agreement with a sensor manufacturer in order to integrate the sensor system into the technical infrastructure and the existing software solutions. The company is looking mainly for solutions on the market but is open to tested prototypes where software interfaces already exist.
Stage of Development: 
Already on the market
Comments Regarding Stage of Development: 
"near market" sensors are also accepted.
