Digital and analog electronic design for ocean monitoring


In partnership with industry, the UW-STREAM laboratory follows a scientific approach to design next generation electronics for subsea monitoring applications. Being a part of the UW-STREAM offers a unique opportunity to develop signal processing techniques on embedded platform and deploy the systems in a realistic underwater environment.  State-of-the-art simulation and measurement tools are provided to us by our sponsors and industrial partners.

The UW-STREAM was founded in 2013 as a research center focused on the development of electronics for underwater communication systems.


We are a young dymanic team of researchers at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. 

We collaborate with Industry and scientists to improve underwater communication and sensing system for military, commercial, environmental and scientific applications.


Underwater Communications Novel algorithms are investigated and measured to enable acoustic, optical and magneto-inductive transmission.  


Embedded processing Efficient processing techniques are proposed to reduce power consumption of remote devices. 


Mixed-Signal Circuit Design Key circuits to reduce the footprint and power consumption are designed on CMOS and GaN platforms.
