WHOI to Receive Funding for Ocean Margins Initiative in West Africa

A team of 17 scientists from 13 institutions led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), University of Rhode Island (URI), and University of Ghana, has been selected to initiate a project through the Ocean Biogeochemistry Virtual Institute (OBVI) funded by Schmidt Sciences. The project, Ocean Margins Initiative (OMI), is one of five selected projects after a process that started with 117 expressions of interest from 48 countries. Together the teams, which include 60 scientists from 11 countries advancing the 5 selected projects, will make up a global research network with support from Schmidt Sciences and access to Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor (too). OBVI has committed $45M US to fund the 5 research teams over the next 5 years.

Collaboration to Bring AI-Optimized Multi-Provider Satellite Connectivity to the Maritime Industry

Tototheo Global and Neuron have announced an agreement to deploy Neuron’s AI-powered quality of experience (QoE) management platform to vessels contracted to Tototheo. Through this partnership, Tototheo Global and Neuron will address a growing need for ships as they increasingly engage with multiple satellite providers and networks—the need for increased transparency and technologies to help vessels switch seamlessly between different service deliveries.

NOAA and US DOE Sign MoA to Advance Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal

NOAA and the US Department of Energy (DOE) have signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) on future collaborations regarding marine carbon dioxide removal research and development. As a climate solution, marine carbon dioxide removal is an important pathway to achieve the broader Biden Administration goal for the US to reach net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050.

NATO Scientists Start Research Mission in the Arctic Sea

Scientists and engineers from the NATO Science and Technology Organisation’s Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) arrived at the Norwegian port of Tromsø on June 5, 2024, to begin two combined research missions that will assess the impact of climate change in the Arctic. The results of their studies will help NATO adapt to global warming and Arctic environmental transformation.

VLIZ and Maritime Robotics Unveil Cutting-Edge Long-Range USV

Over the last year, Maritime Robotics and VLIZ have collaborated intensively on the design and build of a highly customized Mariner X uncrewed surface vessel (USV)—named the USV Gobelijn—which is outfitted with a range of state-of-the-art scientific sensors. In addition, USV Gobelijn is equipped with a launch and recovery system (LARS) that is able to deploy ocean gliders. The USV was officially presented on May 30, 2024 (Ostend, Belgium). This investment in the framework of the Brexit Adjustment Reserve (BAR), places VLIZ at the absolute forefront of marine autonomous systems for ocean observation in the marine scientific and innovation community worldwide.
