Marine X-band radar locates vessels and features, including coastlines and buoys. It filters distracting signals (eg.
June 2018 – October 2019
In the past few years, the Nova Scotia tidal community has augmented its marine operational capacity, but some unknowns and risks still exist and the cost associated with such operations are high.
July 2018 – May 2019
There’s not yet a standardized, optimal way of extracting power from tidal currents. That’s why many tidal industry technologies are currently being tested around the world.
