Abstract. We describe how we plan to convert a traditional data collection sensor and ocean model into a DDDAS enabled system for identifying contaminants and then reacting with different models, simulations, and sensing strategies in a symbiotic manner. The sensor is just as useful in water as it would be on Mars for material identification. A successful terrestrial application of the sensor will lead to many new applications of the device and possible technology transfer to the private sector.
