On July 12, 2013 during the VISIONS'13 Expedition, the first live-streaming of data occurred from a pressure sensors installed at the Slope Base site using the medium-powered J-Box with power and communications supplied by the ROV ROPOS (Dive 1601). In addition to the pressure sensor at Slope Base (PN-3A, site MJ03A), another pressure sensor was also installed at the base of Axial Seamount (PN3B-MJ03A). In 2014, these will be connected and powered up through the cabled secondary and primary infrastructure providing real-time data 24/7 to the Internet.
