—— Monthly System Availability – 1 Month Average ≥90 %.

—— Overall system availability (for the campaign) ≥95 %.

—— Monthly Post-processed Data Availability – 1 Month Average ≥80 %.

—— Overall Post-processed Data Availability ≥85 %.

— The supplier shall provide evidence that the above metrics have been achieved. This shall include reviews and reports from internationally recognised independent bodies.

— The FLS should meet the minimum requirements of an FLS unit for the purpose of WRA as detailed in the IEA Recommended Practices for Floating Lidar Systems [2].

— The Supplier should provide the information and evidence detailed in Sections 2, 3, 4 (for the purpose of WRA), 6 and 8 of [2].

—— The Lidar manufacturer and model,

—— Whether the buoy is of spar-buoy, marine buoy, or any other type,

—— The mooring system,

—— Whether motion compensation is employed: if so, what degrees of freedom are compensated, and whether this is applied in hardware and/or software,

—— The metocean and/or other sensors included in the FLS,

—— A signal/data flow chart comprehensively visualizing data acquisition and on-board data processing including motion compensation,

—— The on-board power system,
