The National Oceanography Centre works collaboratively with government, industry and academia across the four main pillars of ocean security: Maritime Defence, Maritime Homeland Security, Marine Environmental Security, and Maritime Cyber Security.

The NOC aim to help with the delivery of applied marine science and technology to meet the maritime part of stated defence missions. Our capability in supporting maritime defence missions continues to evolve to meet new challenges.

The NOC is working in collaboration with the defence industry to:

  • Develop new technologies to enable greater autonomy and remote sensing
  • Understand how to gain operational advantages through greater understanding of the marine and coastal environment
  • Enhance mine counter-measure, hydrography and patrol capabilities.
