Marine Technology and the North

A symposium in cooperation with the Marine and Oceanographic Technology Network on developing industry and other standards for arctic and high latitude operations

While Arctic shipping routes are opening up new opportunities for businesses internationally, travel and transportation through the region and its near freezing water creates new challenges and needs for innovative technologies. This symposium, in cooperation with the Marine and Oceanographic Technology Network (MOTN) and in coincidence with The Senior Arctic Officials Arctic Council meeting, will provide insights into developing industry standards for high latitude operations. The free half-day event will include a keynote presentation from Captain Andrew Norris, U.S. Coast Guard (Ret.), Emeritus ADM Papp Professor of Maritime Security at the U.S. Naval War College. Panelists from the U.S., Canada and Iceland engaged in three panel discussions:

  • Emerging Operational Challenges and the Need for New Technologies and Methods
  • Development of Technologies and Technology Standards for High Latitude Marine Operations, including overview on how marine tech standards are established
  • Arctic Opportunities

Please find a full updated event agenda for the free event, including speaker information, here. In addition to the panel sessions, Educational Passages; Ecochlor, Inc.; Aquabotix; and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution will be exhibiting. Complimentary lunch will be served.
