TechOceanS Project Launched for Healthier Oceans

On 10 November 2020, the Technologies for Ocean Sensing (TechOceanS) Project conducted their virtual launch meeting. Over the course of the next four years, an international team of ocean technology experts from across Europe will develop a range of new in-situ sensing, imaging and sampling technologies. Cyprus Subsea is a proud member of this project consortium. In addition to novel technologies, the consortium will also develop and test ocean best practices.

The TechOceanS Project will pioneer five new sensors, two imaging systems, a novel sampler and an Artificial Intelligence-driven image processing methodology. These novel oceanographic instruments will all be capable of robust operations at depths beyond 2,000 metres.

TechOceanS is an ambitious project that has the potential to revolutionise how we measure and monitor our changing oceans. The exciting technology we’re developing will capture important data that will have a significant impact in diverse areas such as ocean conservation, resource management, blue economy and policy.

Cyprus Subsea is leading Task T11.1 – Development and testing of best practices with our partners. Our partners include Platforma Oceanica de Canarias (PLOCAN) and National Oceanography Centre (NOC).
