CMR contribute to R&D of observation systems and advanced software solutions for mapping and monitoring the marine resources. We work for a sustainable management of the ocean and the resources.
Since the 1980s CMR has collaborated with IMR on the development of advanced scientific software and analysis tools for mapping the pelagic and demersal resources from marine acoustic data. Available product – LSSS.
By applying expertise within image analysis and processing one can achieve automatic pre-processing of video sequences for efficient marine habitat mapping. By also applying machine learning techniques the system can identify and describe objects of interest in videos and pictures.
CMR has the expertise to setup and run data collection campaigns for monitoring the sea surface, the water column and the benthic zone. This includes designing, building and testing the measurement system as well as data handling, monitoring the data and data analysis.
