Smart Sound Plymouth

21 June 2019

Today, World Hydrography Day, saw Plymouth's Marine Business Technology Centre (MBTC) officially launch Smart Sound Plymouth, a proving area for designing, testing and developing cutting-edge products and services for the advanced marine sector.

Covering over 1,000km2 of ocean off Plymouth Sound, UK, the proving area's impressive variety of water depth, sea states and weather conditions is ideally suited for conducting sea trials, including subsea tests with access to offshore water depths of 75m.

Through MBTC, access to Smart Sound Plymouth is free to eligible businesses and comprises a number of physical assets to aid technological development including: an unmanned surface vessel operated by the University of Plymouth; fully instrumented data buoys that form part of the Western Channel Observatory operated by Plymouth Marine Laboratory; the Continuous Plankton Recorder run by the Marine Biological Association and a fleet of support vessels to facilitate trials.
