Exploring OceanICT at Oceanology International 2024

Did you know that there's more life in the oceans than in any other part of the planet? The world's oceans cover more than 70% of our planet's surface and are teeming with life, yet they remain one of the least explored and understood frontiers.

Oceanology relies heavily on information and communication technologies (ICT) to answer critical questions about climate change, marine conservation, and resource management.  

Oceanology International 2024 promises to be a groundbreaking event, bringing together experts, innovators, and enthusiasts to showcase and discuss the latest advancements in Ocean ICT. 

The Role of Ocean ICT 

Information and Communication Technologies have revolutionized the way we explore and study the oceans. Here are some key areas where Ocean ICT plays a pivotal role:

Data Collection and Monitoring:

Oceanographic instruments equipped with sensors, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are equipped with advanced sensors and communication systems. By utilizing these technologies, scientists are able to monitor ocean conditions, gather biological and chemical data, and monitor climate-related changes in real time. 

Satellite Technology and Underwater Communication:

Satellite-based ICT tools provide invaluable data for oceanographers. They enable the monitoring of sea surface temperature, sea level rise, and the tracking of marine vessels for fisheries management and safety. Also, developing robust communication systems for underwater applications is essential for remote sensing, monitoring, and control of ocean equipment. These systems enable researchers to transmit data to and, receive instructions from remote locations. 

Data Analysis and Modelling:

Big data analytics and advanced modelling techniques allow scientists to process and interpret vast amounts of oceanographic data. This helps in predicting weather patterns, understanding marine ecosystems, and assessing the impact of climate change on oceans.

Environmental Monitoring:    

ICT solutions are used to monitor pollution, oil spills, and other environmental threats to the oceans. They aid in rapid response and mitigation efforts to protect marine ecosystems. 

Ocean ICT Innovations at Oceanology International Show 2024

Oceanology International 2024 will feature a wide array of innovative Ocean ICT solutions. Here are some of the anticipated highlights:

Next-Gen Autonomous Vehicles:

Cutting-edge AUVs and ROVs with advanced imaging capabilities, improved battery life, and enhanced manoeuvrability will be on display. These vehicles can access extreme depths and gather high-resolution data.

HydroFi technology:

Wireless communications that enable transmission of data through the water-air boundary, water column, seabed and subsea. Ocean Industries can benefit from patented solutions that help digitally transform how they deploy, protect, operate, integrate, automate, and manage near-real-time remote communications at every stage of technology adoption. 

Real-time Oceanographic Sensors:

Exhibition Stands will showcase state-of-the-art sensors and instruments for collecting data on temperature, salinity, pH levels, and more. These sensors are crucial for understanding ocean health and climate trends.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning:

Companies will present AI and ML solutions that help process and analyse oceanographic data more efficiently. These technologies are essential for predicting and responding to ocean-related challenges.

Communication Systems: 

Innovations in underwater communication systems will be showcased, enabling more reliable data transmission and control of remote equipment.

Marine Robotics:

Beyond AUVs and ROVs, attendees can expect to see advanced marine drones and robotics designed for various oceanographic applications, from seabed mapping to marine archaeology.
