This contribution reports on the read-out system of the future KM3NeT undersea network of several thousands of synchronized optical detecting nodes. Each node embeds a specifically designed fully integrated communicating system based on Xilinx FPGA SoC technology. It runs the VxWorks real-time OS and DAQ software designed within the ICE middleware framework resulting in a highly flexible,...

Directional detection of non-baryonic Dark Matter requires 3D reconstruction of low energy nuclear recoils tracks. A gaseous micro-TPC matrix, filled with either 3He, CF4 or C4H10 has been developed within the MIMAC project. A dedicated acquisition electronics and a real time track reconstruction software have been developed to monitor a 512 channel prototype. This auto-triggered electronic...

ANTARES is the First full operational and the largest neutrino telescope in the Northern hemisphere. Located in the Mediterranean Sea, it consists of a 3D array of 885 photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) arranged in 12 detection lines (25 storeys each), able to detect the Cherenkov light induced by upgoing relativistic muons produced in the interaction of high energy cosmic neutrinos with the...

We describe the sound emission control board of an acoustic positioning system necessary to triangulate flexible optical detection lines in the KM3NeT future deep sea neutrino telescope. Such a positioning system must log the positions of optical sensors for Cherenkov radiation emitted in sea water to precisions of ~10cm, over a >1 km3 instrumented volume. This will be achieved by acoustic...
