A Platform serves to collect and manage resources in a single collocated physical environment, so the resources can share the benefits (location and environment, movement, power, bandwidth) of the platform. A platform consolidates or provides system resources (power, communication bandwidth), component resources (instruments and platform subsystems), and environmental resources (location and movement, available sampling regimes).
Platforms may be stationary (as in a mooring) or mobile (as in a glider or AUV), cf S&A Domain Model.
See the Detailed Mockup for the Platform Facepage to understand how these specifications and groupings are used in laying out the actual screen views.
