On Wednesday 10/06/2020 we performed the first test deployment of the new 7 m diameter circular targets constructed for PLP2020. The first of the two targets was a prototype cylindrical cage-type target, much like an aquaculture structure, which did not contain any marine litter. The second target was a circular frame with a white polyethylene mesh attached on the frame structure. Both targets were deployed and anchored at sea in order to assess their robustness, ease of deployment and buoyancy. UAV optical and thermal images were captured using a DJI Phantom 4 V2Pro and a Mavic 2 Enterprise. Conditions were excellent and the test was a success.
