NSCC and QPS to Develop Ocean Sensing System

Dr. Craig Brown and Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) will partner with Clearwater Seafoods, and two ocean technology companies, Quality Positioning Services BV and Blue C Design, to develop a state-of-the-art ocean sensing system and mapping capability, thanks to a $1 million investment from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to establish the NSERC Industrial Research Chair Colleges (IRCC) – Chair in Integration Ocean Mapping Technologies.

The funding, awarded through the College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program, will help NSCC strengthen its work with local industry to develop technologies that can better map the ocean seafloor.

"Using new camera designs, advanced sensing and sonar systems will enable our ocean technology applied research program to make major contributions to an important economic sector in our province," explains Dr. Wayne St-Amour, NSCC Executive Director, Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Dean of Applied Research. "Our aim is to bring our experienced ocean researcher Chair holder together with industry and the latest in technology to help solve industry challenges while we train students as future ocean specialists."

A greater understanding of our ocean seafloors will also have an enormous impact on the health of the ecosystem. With the data collected by the mapping technologies, the fishery can discover ways to reduce its impact and ensure sustainable stock harvests.

The Chair in Integration Ocean Mapping Technologies will provide advantages to NSCC students studying in its many ocean-related programs, like the Advanced Diploma in Oceans Technology. The research will provide significant internship opportunities for at least 15 students who will gain experience working with industry on real-world problems.

While the initial focus for the chair is the application of this technology for the fishery, the five year research program holds significant potential to benefit other ocean industries like oil and gas, renewable energy and ocean tourism.
