Data management plan for the grant, "CPS: Medium: Integrating sensors, controls, and ecotoxicology with decoupled aquaponics using brackish groundwater and desalination concentrate for sustainable food production." This project aims to develop a cyber-physical system (CPS) testbed of integrated sensors, controls, machine learning, and ecotoxicology tools to engineer sustainable food production systems based on aquaculture using brackish water. The testbed includes an automated recirculating aquaculture system integrated with a real-time ecotoxicology system, implementing the system using desalination concentrate to demonstrate that brackish groundwater desalination costs can be offset by using its byproducts for profitable food production. This project will engage students of the local communities in three major ways: developing an exhibit and activity emphasizing interdisciplinary CPS research conducted during the academic year, offering summer research experiences to students from underrepresented groups, and participating in STEM outreach events targeting underrepresented groups.
