Description: Institute of Oceanography, Hellenic Center for Marine Research, P.O. BOX 2214, 71003 Iraklion, Crete, Greece. During the Pilot Phase of the Mediterranean Forecasting System (MFSPP) (1998–2001) a prototype observing system (Mediterranean Moored Multi-sensor Array – M3A) was designed, developed and operated in the Cretan Sea for continuous oceanographic measurements in real time. The main problems encountered were associated with biofouling, underwater and aerial communication and with the design of the surface buoy. In the second phase of the MFS project named Mediterranean Forecasting System Towards Environmental Predictions (MFSTEP) (2001–2005), the aim was to solve those problems and to consolidate the M3A. During the approximately five years of operation there were 13 scheduled and 15 emergency visits with a total duration of 65 days. The acquired experience through the maintenance program proved that the continuous observation of a so important system with a relative low cost is feasible.
