SENTRY is a 24/7 ICT-enabled system that innovates the water quality monitoring and assessment of concerned advisory agencies through the deployment of devices that automates data acquisition of relevant water quality-related parameters developed by DOST. Data are transmitted to a data processing system that makes those results available over the internet. Among the parameters being gather are pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and turbidity. SENTRY also has a feature that warns concerned agencies whenever the system detects that a data is nearing its critical value. Water Quality Monitoring and Assessment (WQMA) bulletins and advisories from DENR-EMB IV-A and DA-BFAR IV-A can also be disseminated by system to LGUs, fish cage owners and other stakeholders.

Outputs:
• Development of a prototype equipment which will gather water quality parameters remotely deployed and electronically transmit data to a centralized data store
• Development of an application software which will stores all transmitted results of the water quality monitoring DOST’s sensors and WQMA data from DENR-EMB IV-A and DA-BFAR IV-A, plot monitoring sites and generate graph of results, gather and disseminate reports (bulletins, advisories, warnings, alerts, etc.) to concerned stakeholders, and build database of Taal Lake fishing industry
• Calibration/validation of sensor-acquired data through comparison with laboratory testing
