Human life is benefitted from the ocean, the area of which accounts for about 70 % of the surface area of the global. We have to use a wide variety of ocean resources in a sustainable way. The research field of this center is composed of 'the sensing engineering field', 'the platform engineering field' and 'simulation engineering field'. By integrating these research fields, we create a new underwater observation technique to know the essential functions of the ocean and to utilize the ocean effectively. Based on the international collaboration, we will observe and evaluate the potential and the risk of the ocean, and contribute to the coexistence of human and the ocean.
Fraunhofer IBMT - Division Ultrasound
The Fraunhofer IBMT with the division Ultrasound offers its customers comprehensive access to the widest possible range in the field of ultrasound in general and sonar applications in particular. In recent years the Fraunhofer IBMT has impressively demonstrated its capabilities in projects for industrial customers as well as publicly funded projects with the development of a wide range of sonar systems for various applications.
Thanks to access to the entire competence chain of the division of Ultrasound (simulation, transducer development, electronics development, software development, production) and a network of experienced technology partners, the most diverse requirements of our customers can be efficiently implemented. With the aid of model-based simulations and initial preliminary trials, ultrasound antennas with customer-specific characteristics can be developed, built and characterized under realistic application conditions. For this purpose, among other things, we are equipped with various measurement tanks, a pressure chamber with a test pressure up to 600 bar as well as several water vehicles. The development and realization of adapted electronic systems (single-channel and multi-channel) for the excitation of the antennas and the evaluation of the received signals are as much part of the offer in the field of Sonar as the creation of all necessary software components. On request, the customer can have open access to the electronic system, which means he has full access to all data and signals at every point of the signal processing chain. Thanks to the high degree of flexibility and the access to all system components (antenna, electronic system, algorithms and software), we develop and realize the most efficient all-round solutions for our customers.
The development of production technologies certified in accordance with ISO 9001 rounds off our offer and allows the realization of prototypes and pilot series right up to serial production. In addition to this, the customer also has access to a comprehensive range of training courses for the transfer of all development and production results.

In 2018, we will be holding the OCEANS and Techno-Ocean meetings together as a joint convention in Kobe for the first time in ten years.
In Japan, recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase in public attention towards marine-related science and technology, and our marine industries. We are therefore delighted to be able to plan the hosting of OCEANS'18 MTS/IEEE Kobe / Techno-Ocean 2018 (OTO'18) in such a progressive environment. The theme for OTO'18 has been provisionally set under the wording 'Ocean Planet' It's our home.? The oceans, which cover 70% of the earth's surface, provide us with a wide variety of gifts including natural resources and energy, and we would like to use the convention to reconsider issues such as natural disasters and environmental concerns from the standpoint of the oceans. We also hope that by holding OTO'18 we will gain new opportunities to reconsider the importance of constructing and coordinating an international network under the changing international circumstances of present times.
The Kobe Convention Center, which will be the venue for OTO'18, is conveniently located on Port Island, about 10 minutes from downtown Kobe, one of Japan's foremost tourist destinations. It connects to downtown via an efficient 'Port Liner' rail transit system and includes the International Conference Center, International Exhibition Halls, hotels and other key facilities.
We look forward to welcoming you in 2018 at the OTO'18 venue.

At Oceans'17, Nippon Kaiyo exhibits WACS (Water Column Tube Sampler). WACS is the water column sampler that continuously collects vertical distribution of phytoplankton and bacteria in the water without disturbance. In oceans and lakes, phytoplankton and bacteria live in the water column are known to unevenly be distributed. Therefore, continuous sampling with vertical position is required for precise monitoring of the vertical distribution of water organisms. WACS is specifically designed as a focus of vertical sampling in the water column.
