Topic Highlights
  • Autonomous vessels
  • Creating marine navigation intelligence charts and data for those using the waterways (shipping, sailing, ports authorities)
  • Building marine data systems that can survey and monitor the environment to ensure safe navigation
  • Multi information data including scanning data, manometer data (using magnets), sub bottom profiling and multi sensor data
  • Mapping and cartography for navigation and offshore projects and construction, geographic information systems & software
  • Establishing national oceanographic data centres
  • Dredging engineering: technic & material, dredged material treatment
  • Automatization and remote control monitoring to avoid shutting down of the whole system and to ensure security of ships
  • Integration of IT and Earth observation satellites for marine data for environmental monitoring, marine life protection
  • Monitoring climate change impact on the costal and sea vegetation (alga and grass) to implement a sustainable marine environment management
  • Comparison and validation of Hyperspectral and Multispectral Remote Sensing Data for Bathymetry Mapping.
  • GPS, GIS and Inertial Navigation System (INS)
  • Coastal engineering
  • Climate change and sea level
  • Integrated management of coastal zone and evolution to help the decisions makers
  • Practical methods to collect data, to get updated and accurate data, and to share them
  • Ways to integrate existing technical developments and information to set up a framework for marine data infrastructure in the GCC and make interoperable data available to all stakeholders
  • Legislation and policy development to address threats to the marine environment
  • Hydrographic surveys (taking measures, navigation data, dredging, marine construction such as quay)
  • Data about water: salinity, current, density, quality, temperature, level, topographic, weather, humidity, wave, tide, seafloor
  • Navigation safety data (sand, seafloor mapping, erosion, sediments, marine currents, tide, wave)
  • Navigation technology (light, lighthouse, site marking, beacons)
  • Observation of the littoral, data in the field, climate, current, coastal evolution and development & erosion, coastal urbanization
  • Technology to acquire marine data: buoy, radar, sonar, 3d modelling, satellite image, application, sensor, undersea cables
  • E navigation and application, 3D and real time for safety, management, planning & operational monitoring
  • Alert system in the region
  • Collect accurate and updated marine data
  • Marine data needed for port management, construction, quay walls & onshore structures (warehouse, conteners, lift machines, pontoons) like waves, tide, current
