This paper presents recent developments from the Underwater Systems and Technology Laboratory in order to integrate data received simultaneously from static and free-moving wireless sensors as well as unmanned vehicles, allowing real-time access of data using ubiquitous technologies. Live data is communicated using pre-established XML data formats and using the HTTP protocol for communication. Compatible systems may both send or receive this data following a publish/subscribe design pattern. Here, we describe the architecture as well as the various systems that make part of it: operational consoles, unmanned vehicles, wireless sensor networks and drifting sensors. The entire system is evaluated by presenting results from a real-world experiment.
