RAMONES is an EU H2020 FET Proactive Project which aims to offer a new fleet of instruments to perform continuous and in situ measurements of natural and artificial radioactivity in the marine environment as part of its main objectives. Those instruments will be developed, optimized, validated and deployed in the field, based on implementing specific functional characteristics, optimizing integrated solutions, and fine-tuning their overall architecture. The main effort in RAMONES is to define the new state-of-the-art in radioactivity monitoring in ocean ecosystems investing on innovative stationary and mobile platforms. RAMONES will develop light-weight, high-resolution, power-efficient radiation spectrometers integrated aboard autonomous underwater vehicles. A benthic laboratory will additionally be developed as a multi-instrument platform to offer high-resolution spectroscopy and imaging capabilities equipped with additional sensors. Radioactivity monitoring will offer several opportunities to understand the dose impact on ocean ecosystems in various extreme locations, such as underwater volcanoes, seismic faults or deep-ocean drilling locations. Artificial intelligence and robotics will core factors in achieving the new state-of-the-art in coordinated navigation and decision making, and will provide the tools for risk forecasting and risk mitigation. In this paper, a progress update on RAMONES instruments is reported, jointly with a report on the RAMONES contributions to the Environmental Intelligence initiative.
