The SMST strives to apply scientific research and higher education to better understand, protect, and utilize the oceans, which cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface. We attract funding from a broad range of government and industry sources and work closely with our partners to understand and address current and future technology needs in ocean engineering. Research in the SMST focuses on several key areas, including Hydrodynamics, Acoustics and Communications, Navigation and Control, Naval Architecture, Marine Robotics, Ocean Environment and Marine Exploration. Through a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach, SMST has been consistently contributing to the further marine related science and technology, and national security.
