Research & Development

Innovating today to improve tomorrow

We’re not here to maintain the status quo. We’re here to build on it.

Technology has the power to make ocean research safer, faster and more accurate – but it can’t evolve on its own. It needs a human commitment to innovation. 

And that’s what we’re known for worldwide.

NOC Innovations R&D

Our R&D team – which now comprises over fifty engineers – live to push the boundaries of marine technology. 

The pursuit of progress is what drives us, because we know that’ll increase our understanding of the ocean and improve our chances of mitigating man-made climate change.

What do we focus on?

We develop tools for system integration, battery management, modelling, autonomous technology, and lots more.

We do all of our R&D in-house. We have our own state-of-the-art development workshops, testing facilities and calibration infrastructure, designed by us for us.
