The cluster's multidisciplinary group of researchers explore marine-relevant topics. Research is aimed at addressing the grand challenges of modern ship design:
Dramatically improve the efficiency of ships, while reducing air pollution and GHG emissions from the marine industry.
Greatly reduce noise pollution caused by ships and other marine enterprises.
Improve safety and situational awareness in order to avoid the human, economic and environmental impacts of shipboard incidents and collisions at sea.
Upgrade shipboard sensor, information, and decision systems in order to provide accurate and timely warnings of surface and near-surface threats.
Increase vessel and system autonomy to improve efficiency, safety, resiliency and reduce crewing requirements.
Train people who can design and innovate in the shipbuilding and industrial marine sector
