Marine Autonomous Systems (MAS) Update
Convenor: Prof Russell B Wynn Chief Scientist, NOC Marine Autonomous and Robotic Systems (MARS)
Marine autonomous systems (MAS - including platforms, sensors and associated software) are revolutionising our ability to collect data from the marine environment. NERC is investing £25M in marine autonomous systems in the current decade, which is enhancing our ability to explore the deepest and most inaccessible parts of the ocean, while also increasing the spatial and temporal extent of observations. Join us for this one-day showcase to
1) Learn about the cutting-edge research undertaken by the NERC scientific community and its partners,
2) Get information about NERC's MAS capability and how to access it,
3) Provide input into NERC's future MAS capital spending priorities, and
4) Find out about the exciting projects being undertaken as part of the new NERC/EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training - Next Generation Unmanned Systems Science (NEXUSS).
