Our technology. Your way
When it comes to ocean science, NOC Innovations leads the way.
And having designed, built and implemented industry-leading technology for over 60 years, we recognise our creations can reach far beyond our own walls.
That’s why our clients are increasingly opting for technology transfer collaborations with us such as licensing.
Through multiple models, we share our technology with our portfolio of partners, providing them with a competitive advantage in their industry.
But while our technology captures the data we need from the most challenging of marine environments, its potential outside of ocean science is huge.
And because we’re an ocean science centre and not a product manufacturer, our resources are dedicated to research and development. This means we’re constantly designing, testing and adopting new and disruptive technologies.
We’re set up to transform ideas into concepts, concepts into prototypes, and prototypes into field-proven equipment.
We also have the expertise to steer our creations through the Technology Readiness Levels, including lab- and field-based testing.
Our partners engage with us at all tech development stages. Many work with us on an ongoing basis, and recognise the value of utilising a specialist research and development partner without having to actually invest in the capabilities themselves.
This marine technology transfer model helps them keep their operational costs low while giving them access to industry expertise far beyond what they could or may wish to develop on site.
When you lease our tech, you’ll have the legal rights to install it, use it and profit from it.
But it goes beyond that. You’ll also be privy to the latest scientific insights, and gain access to the most up-to-date versions of the world’s leading marine research tools.
Our Four Methods Permeability Calculator (FoMPeCa) is a digital tool that processes data from experimental tests to determine the permeability of porous media.
We wrote it in MATLAB® , and it’s presented through a friendly and easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI).
This GUI is home to three primary panels and four hidden panels which become visible when you select them.
The primary panels allow you to:
The hidden panels house:
FoMPeCa is available with a non-exclusive licence, and will prove especially valuable to companies supplying software solutions to the oil and gas, geotechnical and material testing sectors.
Our HRU offers a low-cost, multi-shot, compact, simple and reliable means of releasing ballast weights (up to 20kg) from free-drifting instruments.
You can also use it to release actuation devices for a variety of applications at predetermined depths up to around 300m.
