In this Demonstration Statement, we present the performance results of the Satlantic ISUS V3 under diverse environmental conditions in surface mapping, depth profiling and moored deployment field tests. A total of three different field sites were used for testing, including estuary, open-ocean, and riverine environments. For the surface mapping deployment in Monterey Bay, the ISUS nitrate estimates closely tracked ambient nitrate concentrations (ISUS:Reference Sample = 1.04 ±0.2) over a two -order magnitude range and all expected data were reported. The ISUS successfully reported out nitrate concentrations at a 1 Hz sampling rate over two vertical p rofiling tests. Agreement with field reference sample concentrations was generally good, but a calibration offset was apparent from direct comparisons. The ISUS was successfully tested in a moored application at two of the three attempted test sites. A mechanical failure of the battery pack was encountered in the Michi.....
