IOOS Wants to Hear from Marine Technologies Sector

Does your company provide technology or services to the marine technology and services sector, or have a product that utilizes US IOOS data? If so, IOOS would like to hear from you.

The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) is sponsoring a study that will articulate the economic impact of the ocean observation sector in the U.S. This nationally-focused study will inventory companies classified as providers of technology to US IOOS and intermediaries of US IOOS information that sell it to end users. The study will address items such as: number of companies in each category (provider and intermediaries), size of these companies, volume of activity, volume of exports, and number of employees. The study will include narratives by companies on how US IOOS has helped their operations, planning, and growth, as well as perceived potential for future growth and investment. The study began September 2013 and will be completed in the fall of 2015.
