Status of PIRATA T-Flex Implementation
Eight (8) T-Flex moorings were deployed alongside ATLAS moorings in RAMA and PIRATA between March 2011 and December 2015 [Comparison of ATLAS and T-Flex Mooring Data Tech Memo]. The first stand-alone T-Flex was deployed in August, 2015 at 4S 81E in the Indian Ocean. Other stand-alone deployments have followed since then in both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. More conversions from ATLAS to T-Flex moorings are planned in the future.
