The Advanced Marine Technology Programme facilitates a range of research and development activities in the areas of:
- sensor technologies and platforms,
- advanced communications,
- computer vision and robotics,
- data management and
- information systems.
The programme aims to broker national and international relationships between technology developers in industry and academic centres of excellence for application driven technology development for marine sectors. A key initiative of the Advanced Marine Technology Programme involves the creation of the multi-disciplinary innovation cluster supporting the convergence of ICT and marine related sectors which stems directly from the SmartOcean initiative.
