Our oceans are home to vast and largely untapped resources, carry over 90% of global trade and sustain life on earth through regulation of climate. As global population and commerce continue to grow, the demand to know our oceans is stronger than ever.
At the Centre for Applied Ocean Technology (CTec) we collaborate with industry and others on the development and application of technology for the practical benefit of all sectors of the maritime community.
CTec undertakes applied research and development in four key areas:
The guiding principles of the applied research and development efforts are to:
Our goal is to enhance the safety, efficiency, sustainability and profitability of maritime pursuits through the application of technology. Our technologies and expertise are helping to bridge the gap between ‘knowing' and ‘doing.'
