        Thursday 29th September, 3.30pm - 5pm


        University of Plymouth’s £3.2m Cyber-SHIP Lab is leading developments in understanding and mitigating cyber risks to vessels, ports and offshore infrastructure. Unique facilities can determine key maritime cyber vulnerabilities in a risk-free environment, leading to development of safeguards at technical, system, and operational levels improving global shipping security and providing vital training for the sector.

        The University of Plymouth’s Marine e-Charging Living Lab enabled the installation of shore-side e-charging facilities that can easily link to the National Grid while meeting both consumer and commercial demand. Also developed / deployed an array of sensor technologies to assess the environmental / operational impacts of e-charging. Plymouth is also home to the UK's 1st electric passenger ferry and water taxi.

        PML Applications Ltd (Plymouth Marine Laboratory’s commercial company) will be providing an overview of it’s Centre for Coastal Technologies and Smart Sound Plymouth (in partnership with Plymouth City Council, The Marine Biological Association, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, and the universities of Exeter & Plymouth)  . Smart Sound Plymouth is a first-of-its-kind within the UK, facilitating the design, testing and development of new products and services for the marine sector. Smart Sound facilitates trials, validation and proving of marine innovative technologies across a diverse environment. All missions will be facilitated by a dedicated team in compliance with MAS codes of conduct and de-conflicted with other water users. From trials in shallow benign environments to deeper hostile waters Smart Sound can facilitate a wide range of conditions to suit the user's particular requirements. The testbed will benefit from a range of offshore communications both under and over the water. These include a 4G/5G mobile private network built by Vodafone using Nokia equipment that will enable secure and ultrafast download speeds and low-latency 5G connectivity to support the development of new marine technology.
